Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Bready sweet malty aroma with light noble hoppy notes. The flavor is bready and malty sweet, with just a hint of diacetyl, toffee, and light grassy hops. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The appearance is a deep red amber color, lots of white foam. The aroma is bread like and toasted malts. The flavor is caramel, some brown sugar, and astringent hops, more than I had expected. The finish segued into purely hops, leaving an astringent burning on the palate. Medium thickness, oily mouthfeel. Easy to drink. A little more hoppy than I expected.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Times Square location: This one pours a rather lighter color than expected. It is a clear golden color with an off-white head. It leaves some lacing. It has a sweet, malty aroma with some floral notes. The taste is somewhat sweet. Faint citrus and maybe a hint of butteriness. Good, but it could be better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Empire state building. This is a pretty good maibock overall but has some slight flaws. Pours a nice deep golden- light copper with a thin head. Aroma is slightly estery and fruity with slight apple juice, sticky sweet malts, and lightly bready. Flavor has only a slight sharp malt characteristic and despite its high abv, the body is weaker than most great Maibocks. Lacks that sharp full bodied malty sweetness. Finishes a bit fruity as well. Pretty smooth and easy drinking though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Only the 51st percentile? That is surprising. Nose was not real strong had some honey, citrus and caramel malts in it. Not real complex. Taste was really nice with the citrus and honey working quite well together. I like honey in my Maibocks and I certainly got that here. I would love to have this again.
