On draft at Mission Liquors. It pours a clear golden color with an off white head. The aroma is nice and malty sweet with some light fruit and grains. The mouthfeel is huge and a bit syrupy. Flavors of caramel malt and earthy hops. A bit too thick for me.

oranges and bready notes. Smooth malty body, but a bit too much hops for the style and clearly it use American hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bear Republic in mid-June. Clear copper with a white head. Noble, grassy hops and a little toffee in the nose. Flavor starts with a prominent rush of caramel/toffee complemented by zesty, lemony noble hops. Some notes of fresh grass, light honey and hay. Some alcohol strength detected. (I believe this was 7% abv). Didnít have that note of olive and light smoke that I picked up in other maibocks. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Overall, enjoyable.

10 ounce sample tasted at Rubiconís Maibock Festival. Very faint lightly sweet, lightly floral aroma. Hard to detect and not much else going on. This was my first beer of the day, too. Moderately hazy honey-colored body with a small, off-yellowish head present. Rubbery, smoked, floral notes with what seems to be a hint of juniper berries. A fair amount of toasted malts are present in the middle. Finishes a bit sweet with some lemony flavors and more floral presence. Different. Almost has some Sahti/Gotlandstrikke characteristics.
