Thank goodness this was free. I'm not going to finish this one since I have an entire refrigerator food of good stuff. Aroma of pale malts. The taste is metallic. Not my favorite beer style either so that doesn't help. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from a sampler. Pours a transparent amber with a thick layer of off white head. Aroma of malts and tea. Taste of bread malts and caramel.

It has a nice golden amber color with good clarity. The head is white in color, big, and fluffy. It quickly fades to just a thin covering of bubbles. As I drink a small amount of lace is left behind on the glass. It has a simple clean aroma of sweet bready malts. There is a light caramel sweetness to the malt with a thin earthy hop flavor throughout. It finishes cleanly with some mild hop bitterness. The body is light to medium with just enough carbonation for balance. Over all I would say that it is an average beer that is easy to drink with a simple clean flavor.

Picked out from the Seasonal Variety Pack. To undersized snifter, it pours a bright urine yellow with which a snowy white head 2 fingers in length stood. Foamy. Tastes and smells of tortilla chips, corn, mildew, ale yeast and breakfast tea. Meh, whatevs...

Reviewed from notes. This was always poured into a pilsener whenever I had it. The appearance was a golden amber color that showed a decent transparency about it and allowing some carbonation to be seen rising. The head was about a finger’s thick and was white. Once that died, there was some light foamy lacing. The smell was a malty sweet caramel breadiness. The taste was sweet allowing the caramel breadiness to give off a slight toasty sort of effect. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on the body allowing a decent sessionability running about it. The carbonation seemed fairly smooth. Overall, I say this was a pretty good beer, but my lack of reviews for Maibocks says this was good for me.

gift from my beer buddy cheap. I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised by this brew. Golden pour, yellow, creamy white head. Taste was a malty, sweet caramel, still a little thin feel to it, but not bad. of course it was after work and I really needed a brew.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 Pours dark gold with white head. Sweet, slightly spicy scent with light malt aroma. Taste okay with mild malt pronunciation. Nothing special.

Bottle; poured a clear dull gold with an off white head. Aroma of corn, cornbread, sweet malt, and a touch of grass. Fairly soft on the palate with a decent sweetness. Corn and a touch of earth/grass. Decent for the style.

Bottle. Sweet grainy malt aroma. Clear brassy gold with a large white head. Sweet grainy corn malt and odd quinine flavor. Light body, average carbonation.

pours a clear golden color with a thick fluffy white head. the aroma is sweet malts and sugar and don’t really pick up any hops. the taste is sweet up front with a mild hop kick in it but the aftertaste is where this beer went south. the aftertaste is sorta like a rotten fruit. this was my first beer by this brewery and i wasn’t overly impressed.

Aroma is all malts. Taste is very sweet and just enough character. Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this one.
