COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-style Maibock is part of our "one-off" series of beers. Brewed specifically for the spring time, this brew has plenty of rich malt flavor and boasts a clean, slightly sweet finish. It won’t be on tap for long, so be sure to grab one before it is gone!

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Draft... Clear, orange lager with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is malty and floral; notes of wet leather, sweat and marciano cherries with a rumor of mint. Malty and sugary flavor. Hops are an afterthought at best, but this is consistent with the style (which is too sweet for me). Medium-bodied and fizzy. Lightly sweet finish. Good craftsmanship, but maibocks just aren’t my thing.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Lightly hazed orange, creamy off white head with great retention. After drooling over it for 20 minutes and letting it warm, the aromas finally played out. A very nice nose on this with wafts of peppery and earthy German hops, caramel and toffee, with a light breadiness, and hints of golden raisin. Extremely well balanced throughout with hops and malt living the good life. Medium to full bodied, pillow soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. A fantastic rendition of a classic Maibock. Jim W....keep this on year round for god sakes and lose the loveless Kangaroo Love...
