about what i expect from GB. a little better than the average GB brew because it’s a style i like done reasonably well, just nothing to get excited about. for the style, just below average. light earthy hop aroma and good balance."

An ok maibock. A bit too sweet and one-note. Pours a nice amber with a thick white head. Smells sweet, with some marzipan and a hint of coconut. Taste is sweet all around, more marzipan, slightly nutty, but not much else. Had in the bottle at the Salt Lake City Airport.
