4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice clear golden amber with white foam. Has some good looking carbonation going in the glass.
Aroma is light malt with a tiny bit of hop.
Taste is malt with a bit of sweetness and a little hop to balance it out. Well balanced.
Light palate with good carbonation.
Overall a great beer. Very clean taste and easy to drink. Overall probably my favorite Maibock. I look forward to it in the spring.

pours a clear deep gold to light amber with a medium off white head. aroma is malt, hay, grass. good malt character. semi sweet with just a whisper of hop bitter. fairly crisp, not syrupy like many bocks. Pretty quick somewhat dry finish. Good beer.

aroma is almost non existent. flavor is very good with very little after taste. this is a good beer for flavor but falls short on all other categories.

A very nice springtime beer. Some hops on nose, citrus, but also toasty bread. Flavors of bread, barley, and a little caramel on the palate. Finishes clean with a nice little bit of hop character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. A doughy, buttery biscuit-like aroma comes off the pour. This subsides a bit and is joined by a light citrus and peach fruitiness. I was also able to pick up some light vanilla notes, and something that resembled dutch apple pie. A hint of a floral quality comes through late as well as a buttery caramel syrup. The beer pours a clear golden orange with a soft, off-white head that reduces to a dishwater thin layer by the end; it does leave an average lacing along the glass. The taste is a medium sweetness with a light / medium-light roasty bitterness that appears only at the finish. The medium bodied beer has an average amounts of soft carbonation (maybe a bit on the flat side) that helps the thinner texture to have a bit of a creamy quality to it. The mouth is mostly a fruity, juicy sweetness a mild roasted nut and grassy finish. There’s a touch of dryness right at the finish, but the aftertaste is mostly juicy - a very light, mellow grassy and resin aftertaste ends up being mostly a mild buttered biscuit taste after awhile.
