3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice caramel coloured body with a nice one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of grass, light hops, caster sugar, peaches and some decently strong malt. Medium-bodied; Rather malty flavour with some bitter earthy and herbal notes and a hint of sugars noticeable on the end. Aftertaste has more of a caramel and earthy bitter finish, but some light hops and a touch of soap as well. Overall, a nice maibock with a ton of herbal and earthy notes but the most amount of caramel that I’ve seen in the style. Great to try, especially after brought back. I sampled this 50 cL swing-top bottle purchased from Rewe City in Frankfurt, Germany on 19-April-2014 for €0,95 sampled at home in Upstate New York in New Paltz on 14-June-2014, well worth bringing back across the Atlantic

Bottle, 6.9%. Dusty aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is quite malty, caramelly, almost sweet. Dusty and slightly papery. Not an exceptional example of the style.

Flasche. Trübe dunkelgoldene Farbe mit wenig weißer Schaumkrone. Malzig-würzige Aromas mit etwas tropischem Obst. Eher malzig im Antrunk mit wenigen süßen und schließlich bitteren Noten im Abgang. Feinperliger Mundgefühl. Alkoholischer Nachgeschmack. Gut.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. A sparkling, clear, dark golden beer topped by a finger-thick white head. The aroma is pretty weak, with pale malts, some fruityness and a faint alcohol touch. Rather grainy flavor, some fruityness and a little bitterness. Medium to full body, pleasant carbonation. Short finish which is pretty much like the initial flavor. Superbly boring, and to be honest it’s not very good either. 140509
