This is a pretty solid beer. A fairly interesting attempt at this German style from Fort Collins. It isn’t anything overly exciting, but it’s a spring seasonal, and it finally feels like spring today, so this one is enjoyable for sipping while I watch the tourney.

1 pt 6 oz bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a thick off-white tan head. It has a strong caramel malt aroma with a spice aroma. It tastes of bread, caramel, toffee and spices with maybe a little tea thrown in. This a a great beer. It’s complex but not overly so and is very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
poured from 22 oz bomber into a pint glass
Dark Ruby Red in color, like cranberry juice. Looks more like a standard bock more than a Maibock. nice pillowy white head floats atop a finger deep. fades to a light lacing.
smells of tofee and malt with a bit of fig and cherry. I get a little earthy and spicy hop undertone, a little spiciness almost like Chevre(goat cheese) I don’t smell much for floral aroma like i expect from a maibock.
taste is malt forward with toffee/caramel and cherry/fig sweetness. the middle comes in a little of the earthy hops but none of the floral attitude i want. there is some breadiness that comes through in here and a finish of bitter earthy hops.
mouthfeel is mellow and smooth but a little thick for a Maibock.
easy to drink but overall, this is off for the style.
I’d drink this with mild smoked cheeses, maybe some gamier meats. for some reason i really feel like some Duck L’orange with this.

Bomber split with maniac. Pours a clear dark amber and small tan head ring. Nice caramel nose. Flavor is biscuit, and caramel sweetness, but not over the top. Balanced. Not really a huge fan of this style, but this is damn good.
