2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour into pint glass. Aroma is very yeasty and bread. Flavor is very malty but doesn’t offer a lot of complexity. Some spice notes and vanilla in the finish. Diffentley on the sweeter side but it is nothing offensive.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Burnished gold pour, white head. Nose is malt and a hint of alcohol. Bittersweet. Bitterness from the alcohol cuts into the malt sweetness. Body is sticky and thick on the tongue. Finish is malt and alcohol rolling around; malt seems to have the upper hand by a hair.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Tallahassee TJs. Clear caramel color with a white head that disappears quickly. Light caramel aroma with some grassiness. Nice flavor and fairly true to form but maybe a little overly boozey and heavy. Fine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark gold pour - nose is clean honeyed maltiness - light grassiness, white grape - fairly creamy texture - fairly good balance between clean malt sweetness, light floral notes, and hop grassiness - it’s nothing terribly complex, but for the price point it is a decent Maibock.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head. A sweet fruity nose. Caramel, toffee, vegetable sweetness, hmm. Decent drinkable beer. Comes in very sweet but mostly mellow. OK.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Meh. Light bodied and a little too carbonated. Grassy hops and bready malt. Just too light and prickly.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from TJ’s. Medium golden/amber in color. Sweet malty nose with a bit of graininess. Sweet malts dominate. Some graininess like a cheap lager. Decent thickness on the mouthfeel. Sippable bock.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle stamped best consumed before: 3/7/15.
Pours clear amber with a modest off-white head that soon settles to a ring and partial film on top of the beer.
Smell: has a strange, unappealing moldly-flowery aspect.
Taste: some of the off-aroma carries over the flavor, but it is better than the smell suggests and carries some toast, caramel, and mild bitterness.
Feel: Medium-low level of carbonation; too hot for 7% ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A light copper with a thin white head and no lacing. Very malty and a bit sweet. Grassy and grainy with a crisp finish. Nicely balanced.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Dan for Christmas. Aroma of light sweet malt. Amber with a nice white head. Mixture of sweet and bitter up front. Sweet malt doesn’t quite break through enough. Light roasted caramel flavor that is quickly washed with a bland bitterness.
