COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Maifest is made with 50% munich malt to give it good body and a nice malty after taste. We use plenty of hops to round out the malty flavor with a nice hop bite. With out a doubt, this is the beer to get the drinking months started! Look for it in 12oz 6packs in May and June

Typical pale malt that is slighlty off tasting for the style, although not a bad lager.

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and straw, leading to a lightly bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

I had this, or at least a version of this at the May fest celebration this year. (09) It was the most amazing beer ever. I talked to the brewer and he told me he finished it Saaz hops. I have been trying to duplicate this beer at home ever since.

Active orange with a thin white slowly fading head and suspended matter. Aroma of caramel, toffee, malt, fruit and mild cornstalk and alcohol as it warms. Taste of Munich-esque malt, toasted and sweet malt, toffee, bread and dough. Finishes a bit spunky with some alcohol and mild vegetation.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a lacing white head. Mild spiced and malty to breadish aroma. Spiced and hoppy flavour, dry breadish malt base flavour. Distinct spiced into the finish, breadish malt finish too.

kramer (4894) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow body, small fizzy off-white head. Lots of carbonation. The nose is very grassy with a bit of toasty maltiness. Toasty malt dominates with a decent amount of residual sweetness. A lightly bitter hoppy kick on the back end with a very prevalent alcohol flavor. Medium bodied with a slight stickiness in the middle before the alcohol heats things up on the finish. This just seems a bit too simple and boring. Why is the alcohol flavor so overpowering in just a 5.5% ABV beer?

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle. Fairly light aroma, better than any average american lager, some bready pale malt, light citrus lemon. Pretty weak pour, light bubbly white head, dissipates fairly quickly, no lacing, but the color is decent, copper-amber, some fiz. Malt flavor dominates this light bodied beer, sweet and nut grainy malt, not complex, bitter shows up and the very end, some lingering thats ok. All in all, I’m not too crazy about this one, but is was nice to drink.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber color with a medium size off white head. Aroma of caramel, malt and honey. Taste is lightly sweet with a earthy undertone. Flavors of malt, light hops and nuts. Mild and easy to drink with a light sweet finish.
