tibicinoid (26) - Wyoming, USA - APR 30, 2013
Enjoyed on tap at Huber Haus in Omaha, NE in spring 2012 Review from notes Served in a dimpled Weihenstephan mug Arrives with a huge head that settles to a 0.5cm cap of foam atop the beer. Lacing is significant, a variety of shapes or patterns clinging to the sides of the glass. Body is a golden orange color, transparent with plenty of visible carbonation. Malty, bready aroma with flowery hop presence are the dominant scents, with a background that is slightly grainy and honey-like. Not overly complex, but fairly deep and rich, allowing for it to be enjoyably breathed in frequently. Opens with fairly bright, though still heavy in intensity, caramel malts, backed up by mild honey-like flavors and hop bitterness that is attenuated just under the malt. Mid-palate picks up waves of malt complexiy, from light to fairly caramelized malt sugars. Hop presence becomes somewhat flowery and slightly bitter. This is followed on back of tongue by darker malt sweetness and flowery hops. Lingering bitterness with mild caramel sweetness in the aftertate. Medium-bodied with carbonation that is at first crisp, then peters out and leads to a smooth mouthfeel. Aftertaste is semi-dry, with some stickiness from malts.

Hanuta06 (319) - Washington, USA - APR 16, 2013
Serving: from tap at Schultzy’s Sausage. Aroma: floral hoppy aroma. Appearance: average-sized, rocky, white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, medium-amber body. Taste: moderately sweet initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: too sweet for my tastes.

Golden pour with a white head. Sweet malt aroma of bread, toast, and biscuits. Floral hops, spice, yeast, and a touch of grass. The flavor is mostly just sweet and malty. Some grass to go with bread, toast, and biscuit. Light floral hops, spice, and a hint of grass. Minimal bitterness, some yeast, and light fruit esters.

Draft pint. Clear amber with a small ring of foam. Nose is honey, dry grass, and caramel orange. Flavor is earthy honey comb, slight caramel apple and orange, and dry grass. Medium bodied with low-medium carbonation and to the sweet side, with just a touch of alcohol showing.

BVery (5983) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Tap at Busters on 28th. Yellow gold pour with a white head, probably thanks to the tulip glass. Aroma of pale malts and grain. Taste is light malt and slightly fruity. Not bad.

On draft. Pours a clear pale golden with a small white head that stays and laces. Bread dough aroma with mild spice. Taste is smooth and fluffy with sweet pale malt, more bread dough and a slight hop bitterness. Good for the style.

Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
On tap sat outside Gasthof Fraundorfer, Garmisch-Parrenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany 28th May 2012 I understood that this was Paulener Maibock, it was certainly a Maibock in a Paulaner, so this looks the nearest most likely match. Pours copper wuth medium large white frothy head, stunningly clear. Some grain on nose and a slightly sweetish waft. Quite thick in the mouth the alcohol is noticeable, but there is a steady bitterness also apparent in this beer. Enjoyable but you can tell that is fiercesome stuff. Btw great pub that I had this at, very, very Bavarian in feel with even young lads dressed in full regalia. A6 A5 T8 P4 Ov14 3.7

Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Light bready sweet aroma with grain and light flowery notes. The flavor is grainy, with light mineral-like notes and some bready sweetness. Not bad.
