4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
GABF 09. Pours a clear bright copper light orange with a thin white lasting head- some lace. Aroma is sweet light caramel malts, bready big toasted decocted malts, vienna nutty sweetness, honey and floral light hops. Flavor is also dominated by big toasty sweet malts, bready doughy light hop balance and clean crisp and easy drinking. Well done.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a mostly translucent golden with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of Cheerios, fresh cut grass...aroma is light. Flavor of Cheerios, oats, light citrus. Realizing its hard to describe a maibock. All I know for sure is this one is well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The menu says that this one won a gold medal in 2006, and it was one of the two best beers available during my visit 9/3/07. It pours a clear gold and was served with just a wisp of whitish head. Nice, sweet, bready malts are on the nose along with faint alcohol note (odd on a beer with this ABV, but not significant). Medium-bodied and slight with a light alcohol warmth at the end. Again I’d figure the ABV a bit higher, but it certainly doesn’t detract from the experience. The flavor is round, sweet, caramel and biscuity malts with just a trace of fruity hops to balance things out. Light alcohol and a faint bubble gum round out the flavor profile. This is very solid Maibock and made the visit worthwhile by itself.

Pours to a off yellow almost gold smells earthy with hints of a sweet cider. Taste of apples and carries a tang along with it. Aftertaste is super smooth with a nice finish
