2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
APPEARANCE - light in color. Lighter than most maibocks, even though maibocks are light bocks.
NOSE - very little to it.
FLAVOR - pretty mediocre. Heavy lager flavor comes through. Not much bochiess to it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
6/11/2011: Moerlein Saengerfest Maibock Lager... Aroma: Clean, zesty citrus notes; crisp Pils and biscuit-like malts; floral, slightly spicy hops; fruity, Riesling bouquet. Appearance: Shiny golden yellow color with waves and torrents of carbonation bubbles; transparent complexion; large 2-3 finger puffy and airy beige head. Flavor: Lightly sweet Munich, toffee maltiness with grassy, floral hops, a mild bitterness, and a bready mouthfeel; finish drops off rather quickly. Palate: Medium-body; mostly smooth; average texture. Overall: Just okay; really mild for a Maibock; drinkable, but really nothing special; I drank one and moved quickly onto something else...
12 fl. oz. bottle from Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #17 for this beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden copper with an off-white two finger head that slowly reduces to a head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is very sweet caramel malt with light infusions of dark fruit and floral hops in a medium body. All move smartly to a crisp, lingering finish. The sweet side is dominant, detracting from an otherwise very drinkable brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
32oz growler, filled about 9 hours ago from the Lager House.. There was a little bit of extra air space in the top of the growler. Totally clear orange color. Minimal bubbly white head, fades to virtually nothing. Medium-plus body. Light, crisp carbonation, pretty smooth. Some floral notes in the nose. Light caramel malt, little lightly spicy hop, little fruitiness. Pretty bready. Mostly sweet taste, a light bitterness, and a very light bite in the finish. Not a bad maibock to session

Bottle purchased at Kroger. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Malty aroma with some caramel, lager yeast and a bit of toastiness. Sweet malt and caramel flavor with a light apricot character before a toasty and sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the lager house. pours deep golden amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty and bready with notes of biscuit and toast, a slight hop spiciness in the back. Flavor is much the same, lots of that bread and biscuit, really smooth, with a stronger herbal hop presence and light fruitiness. Medium body and a sgarp carbonation. Nice beer
