Red amber color, no head. Fruity aroma. Apple-like flavors dominate this with a candied sugar presence. Some spicy tang at the end. Just ok.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Tap from brewpub. Appearance is a muddy dark brown with a thick tan head. Nose is lightly hopped with some spice. Taste is on the malty side, with some nut, spice, and sweet notes. Finish is smooth and not very bitter. The mouth is moderate. No evidence of the higher than average ABV. Overall, a decent, though not overly exciting brew.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Hand-bottle thanks to kp: Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin ring of off-white head. Aroma of sweet toasty dark caramel malt and some noble hops. Body starts with decent fullness and sweet chewy bready malts with some light fruity character and a touch of peppery clove before a lightly bitter finish. A pretty good bock, but it certainly doesn’t seem to be 11% abv.

Cybercat (3339) - Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2008
This special beer is brewed to benefit the homeless in Atlanta - for every pint sold, Max Lager’s donates 50 cents to a local homeless shelter. Pours a semi-transparent dark mahogany with a thick ecru head. Aroma is rich and hoppy with subtle spice hints. Thick flavor is surprisingly more malty than hoppy and has touches of spice as well as earthy and nutty undertones. Texture is fairly smooth, and aftertaste is nutty and slightly hop-bitter.
