2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orangish amber color with a nice creamy head. Aroma is carmel malt. Flavor is a fair amount of sweetish carmel malt with a moderately bitter hop presence. The hoppiness and malt dont balance well, each comes off as harsh, even though not overly strong. A fair bit of yeastiness and undertones of roasted nuts.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Sampled on draft at the Las Vegas location this beer poured a murky dark amber color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet and yeasty with golden fruits. The flavor was sweet and tangy golden fruits, sugar, bread dough and a touch of booze. Long finish. Full body. Excellent.

Draft at Gordon Biersch Colombus in a 4 oz taster. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, lightly toasted, grass, mild floral hops, decent enough but not something to seek out.

Tap at Dulles pub. Pretty orange-brown color with a fine, tall head. Fruity, caramel nose. Sweet caramel flavor, rather one dimensional, malt straightforward but not quite cloying. Nicely bitter in the finish. Ok.
