3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as Big Easy Imperial Maibock from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours light amber with a creamy off-white head. Smells more sweet than anything, but there might be some grassiness. Med plus body. It is sweet. There is an herby/grassy aspect that might be hop. There is a little bitter, but not enough to squelch the malt. There’s a flavor suggestion that this stuff might be related to malt liquor. Tinge of that sort of aroma too. This one leaves me conflicted.
