This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear, orange-gold colored body with a thin, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bready with a light honey-caramel sweetness, a light grass, some floral fruits, and a light toast. A faint peppery spice and some butterscotch. Flavor is similar. Bready and a bit grainy with a light honey-caramel sweetness to the malts. A light grassy, floral fruitiness with a touch of pepper spice, toast, and a hint of herbal spice. Finishes bready and a bit honey-sweet with a lightly spiced, noble hop bitterness that dries nicely. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium, soft, smooth body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent maibock. Not overly complex, but well balanced and easy drinking. Bready, lightly sweet, floral, a tad spicy, and decently hopped. An alright beer.

12 oz single from my recent trip to Wisconsin. Pours a near transparent darker gold with touches of orange or amber, a little darkness to it, a small whitish head atop dies to a ring and laces minimally. Aromas are grassy and bready, touches of sweeter malts with a touch of butterscotch, toast, and pretty light overall on the nose. Initial is lighter bodied, crisp and sweet bready malts, grainy, with touches of dry grass and florals to provide light bitterness. A touch of warming alcohol, faint spice, with more grainy and bready malts, some toast, a touch of clover honey. Lingering florals on the backend pick up a touch, still a lingering earthy and floral bitterness, clover and grass, touches of yeasty bread pop back in. Finish is dry and floral, grassy, with lingering bread and toast. Simple but not bad. The aroma wasn’t great, but the beer has a nice kick of earthy hops. Not bad.
