3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Capone’s, and I believe this is my 2011 maibock cherry popper. Dark straw pour with 3-finger fluffy white head. Nose is floral and earthy, with hopcitrus, apricotty fruit, definite noble hops. No transient hops in this one; no sir. Tastes earthy, rich, fruity, with a big hop element and some cloying sweetness. Smooth finish, and very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Textbook pour, golden orange, quite active, with a staunch but thin bright white topping of rocky foam. The aroma is, well, beery ... sweet and malty with a hint of citrus. The beer drinks with a rich texture, silky and smooth. A beautiful example of style, this quaffable beer has an evident alcoholic kick, but is sublimely refreshing with a mellow sweet character.
