Transfer from BA review on 3-27-12 - Served in a pint glass Appearance – Served a nice amber color with a light white head. The head faded fast giving way to some a very small amount of lacing. Smell – The smell is mainly malty in nature with an ever so light amount of sweetness. The maltiness is bready with a light yeast aroma mixed in. The sweetness is of toffee and a bit of caramel. Taste – The taste is very similar to the nose; it starts out malty and ends a little bit sweeter. In the beginning nice tastes of some roasted malt and a little bit of wheat meet the tongue. These are sweetened as the taste progresses with flavors of toffee and caramel. The mix of flavors then mixes with an ever so light hopiness and some alcohol flavor come in to take the taste profile to its finish. Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is rather moderate and the carbonation level is quite average. It is very easy to drink. Overall –A nice bready brew that is very easy to drink.

22 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with a short-lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of noble hops, hey, caramel and biscuit malt. Body is full and slightly crisp. Caramel malt, bread crust, drying alcohol, hint of cherries and herbal hops fills the mouth. Finish is medium and dry. Nice, malty brew.

Nice spice notes on the nose. Pours amber with a thin head. Hopper than I expected. Has some nice malt character as well. A nicely balanced beer.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Courtesy of Juart. Pours a clear orange amber color with a 1 1/2 finger light tan foamy head that lasts a decent while. Aroma is papery hops, sweet malt, and a little bit of stale fruit. The flavor is pretty sweet, straightforward malts. A little bit of dry vanilla and alcohol, but not a whole lot of complexity. Just simplicity done well. The body is just a touch over medium. Finishes with a slight hoppy bitterness. A decent Maibock.
