TwoSipDip (8880) - 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 (1463) - 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.

bhensonb (10689) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours amber with a nice white head. Aroma seems grassy and herby over smooth caramel. Medium body at least. Rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is bitter, and almost buttery caramel. This is a lager that could almost be an ale. Complex in a light way, and very pleasant. Sort of a fruity/grassy bitterness in the finish.

Clear golden amber pour with a dense, thick white head that lasts quite a while. Sweet bready aroma, something a bit floral about it. Has a bordering on cloying honey sweetness to the flavor, with orange and floral notes, lightly bitter finish. Very creamy feeling. Nothing overtly wrong with this to me, but I found it a little hard to take. Maybe Iím not a huge fan of the style.
