Golden pour with a bright white head. Subtle sweet nose. Taste is rich and nicely hopped. This feels even more sessionable than it might be at 6%. Definetly one of the most sessionable hotd beers. Nothing bad to say about this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice maibock overall. Pours an ugly clear yellow, but smells very nice, of pear and peach. Tate is light and smooth, with more pear, pineapple, and a bit of a dry cider quality in the finish. Had on tap at the brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Hair of the Dog. Pale yellow pour with white foam. Has a bunch of straw and fruity esters on the nose, particularly grape and apple. Decent bit of bread and biscuit malts. Mildly hoppy. Flavor is pretty much just sweet bread and grains, but there is a touch of bitter, dried straw. Admittedly, not a style I usually love anyway and this one is pretty average.
