3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pour pint at Elysian Fields. Typical Mariners pre-game stop, only they are pouring to glass instead of plastic. Must be a small market team on a week day. That’s cool, vacation starts today. Pours a cloudy golden color with a cream foam head. Soft candy sweet aroma. Flavor is sweet too, but it kinda works here. Big malty sweet lingering finish. Has a grape-ish quality to it that is hard to describe. Not a style I strive for, but glad I tried it. Not bad.

On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is subtle, with some spicy herbal notes and toasted nuts. Flavour is well-balanced, with toasted nuts, a stone fruitiness to it, and some herbal notes. Very well-constructed and brewed to style. Not exciting but this is very enjoyable.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, 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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
