Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a thicker eggshell head that leaves some soapy, spotty lace. Nose involves sweet malt, hop spice, cellar character, with light peach and citrus tones. Quite sweet, fairly bitter. Medium to full bodied, fairly oily, active, with fair spicy hop bitter finish. Good stronger lager.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced earthy hop, bready malt, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, pear, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of earthy hops, bready malts, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good maibock. Robust and well balanced earthy hop, bready malt, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle. Deep, rich and golden, with a frothy but thin top. The aroma is quite clean, malty but without any off-putting sugary side. Solidly firm drinker with a sharp, super-clean finish. Rich malt backdrop and with an evident kick. I absolutely love well made American lagers ... especially in this age of "nothing but IPAs." Well done. (#5507, 5/5/2014)

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2014
Half liter bottle from Wine Warehouse Charlottesville. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a large foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of spicy hops, bready malt, yeast. The taste is bready malt, herbal, grassy hops, a faint bit of fruitiness. Medium bodied, high carbonation, dry, nice balance. Nice beer.

drdisque (504) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2014
From a bottle poured in a chalice. Bland slightly bready beer-like aroma. thick head. Flavor has fairly strong initial hop hit for a lager - Bavarian in nature. More sweet and nutty finish. Light body. Interesting. Not quite what I was expecting. Not bad, but not great.
