Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Clean bright amber color. Delicate malt aroma. Strong malt flavor, with a touch of light colored caramel, and quite strong bitterness. More character than a Maibock, closer to a regular Bock. Not bad.

TwoSipDip (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during 7/5/2014 Seattle beer tour. Pours a golden orange appearance with a tan head. The aroma is awfully floral and citrus forward for a Maibock. Fairly sweet flavor. Kind of gooey mouth feel. Jasmine / potpourri flavor with a lot of tangerine. Kind of strange.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Draught at Hophouse in Portland, OR on 23 May 2013. Poured a clear dark golden colour with a dense white head. Sweet lager malt aroma with some brown sugar and floral hop. Full mouth feel and very pleasant flavours of sweet, soft fruit, bread and fresh oranges. Finish was biscuity malt, light spice and a crisp dry palate. Very fine example of the style.

May 23rd, 2010 - Sometimes I want a session beer. Sometimes I want fried food. Sometimes I want both at the same time. When that not exactly rare combination occurs, I canít think of a more appropriate beer than the Elysian Ambrosia Maibock. Out of the bottle it dribbles calm and mostly clear, but the haziness brings the orange and amber colors just out of focus. Minerals and cashews define the aroma, with a light touch of sulfur, and an overall clean aroma that I tend to smell across lager styles. The first thing I notice after a sip isnít the flavor but a strong carbonation, which after the first crashing rapids have settled reveals a nutty sweetness, touches of caramel, and a quenching, thin outline. Itís flavorful but satisfying, with enough engaging the palate to stand on its own, but also not afraid to use its elbows if it wants to go toe-to-toe with a paired food.

On draft at Elysian Fields. Golden amber in the pint with a tiny bit of thin white head. Sweet honey, floral aroma. Caramel malt flavours with steady sweetness. Tart on the finish. Complex and well crafted, but not a style I particularly enjoy.
