2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz single bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Light golden-orange and clear appearance with a beige head. Aroma of bread, floral notes, light peppery spice, light citrus and other fruity esters. Similar flavor, strong and malty, lightly sweet and bitter and a touch boozy. Medium body. Pretty mild overall, not a lot going on. Kind of hard to drink after a while, a little messy.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
That bocktown monaca is a great place to taste beers. Funny on this one its called big easy but its brewed in wisconsin, heheheh. Good co2 from the start. Fairly clear smell about it. Perhaps a hint of candy on the nose. Fairly light at first but then there is this somthing happening. Some mild bandaid thing. What is this trying to tell me? Was it a purposefully beer to that this way or was it an accident? I’m not sure. yes, is this a maibock or is it a heller? Could be a premium lager as well. Could be a mestake that they just wanted to get outtah here. Finish is a bit difficult and unique fer sure. Hides alky well if its over 5%

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had as Imperial Maibock. Pours clear amber with a frothy ivory head. Aroma is crisp and fruity with just a pinch of caramel. Flavor is quite fruity, mainly apple and pear, with a hint of cloves and a malty underpinning. Texture is on the thin side, only average fizz, but it goes down well, Mai, mai, mai, a decent beer if not a memorable one, no matter what name it has.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rating the imperial Maibock. Sweet bready malt aroma up front. Nice orang amber color with a white head. Rich sweet malt up front. Notes of strong caramel, and some hint of raisin. Sweetness is balanced quickly with an of, bitter taste....slightly peppery. Finish is mostly sweet with a reprise of the bitterness. Watery mouthfeel with average carbonation. O.k.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, date smudged
Glass: Fresh Slice can glass.
Appearance: A huge off-white head erupts from the hazy amber body. Too hazy and too much head.
Aroma: Malty with a mildly caramel and bready backbone.
Taste: Big and malty with a mostly caramel backing, with a slightly toasty finish. Finish lingers for a bit, semi-dry.
Palate: Medium bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: A bit old I suppose, showing all malts at this point, though the description says this is how it tastes.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 2/10/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep gold color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of orange zest, plum, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange zest, plum, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, plum, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Maibock style. Good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle offered @ home, via rote boxe. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy, bright orange appearance with a thin tan head. A lot of sweet orange candy, sweet mash / grain water aroma. A little watery and very twangy. Lots of grass and sweetness. Finishes way too sweet. Pass.
