Sample at Kuhnhenn on 5/16/14. Hazy amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, graininess, caramel and some yeasty esters. Malty and caramelly flavor with lager yeast before an orangy finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Fairly clear, deep amber color with a foamy, slightly off-white head that leaves some dripping, soapy lace dots behind. Aroma is malty, as expected... Steel-y caramel with some sweet biscuit & heavily buttered bread undertones. Mostly sweet with just a coherent touch of astringent bitterness. Flavor has a small alcohol bite up front with more of that Munich malt flavor to blunt the heft. Buttered toast & heavy nuttiness come out on the palate, even more so than the caramel & toffee, though they’re still there. Nice, balancing hop sting in the finish, kind of grassy & mildly herbal in character, it provides a good offset to keep this from being a malt-only show. Good, overall.

4oz pour at Churchkey DC. Pours a hazy orange with some spitty, white head. Nose has orange, soap, yeast, grass, some tangerine. Flavor is a little better, fully oily, orange, yeast, soap, mild herb, a little lavender. Oily finish.

Draft to taster at Kuhnhenn. Looks good for the style; a transparent golden orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes mildly sweet and malty with notes of soft caramel. Average on the palate. A decent example of the style.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Pony w Andy James. Clear dark amber/light brown, rapidly disappearing head. Sweet spicy aroma like a holiday beer and a watery palate. Notes of spice, citrus, dank vegetable. Not really for me.

Draft at pOny for Brendan’s CFA celebration. Pours a deep amber body with thin White lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, light nuts, light hop. Mouthfeel is medium wih notes of malts, fruit, syrup and light fruit hops. Somewhat plain, but not a huge fan of the style so it’s okay with me.

Love Maibocks and this was a good one. Nice aroma and good malty taste. At 8% this will catch up to you pretty fast. Buying a growler to take home.

On tap at Kuhnhenn, poured amber with a off-white head, and left good lacing. Body was a bit murky. Aroma was faint and hard to discern, frankly. All I could tell is that it was moderately malty, and lightly hoppy. Flavor was a bit sweet. Texture was a bit creamy, with soft carbonation. Just OK.
