COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Something has gone terribly wrong (or terribly right depending on your view) in the Brewhouse. One of the brewers must have added too much malt to the mash and made a very strong beer. Stronger than your used to from the brewery that makes authentic German styles. This super strong beer has put the whole place in a state of pandemonium.

- The beer is golden colored but very heavy with alcohol of about 8% by volume. It’s dangerously easy to drink, so as the bottle label states: “You’ve been warned.”

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2007
22oz bottle Pours a very bright and clear golden color with a one finger head that fades quickly to a thin swirling head and ring. The resulting lacing is thin, and tattered, but sticks well. Smell; lots of sweet malts with caramel, bread dough and a little sugar. Some mild fruits come through as this warms with some peaches. Taste; fro the most part the flavor follows the aroma, with caramel, bread dough malts. Then the fruits come out with peaches and and, oddly enough, slightly green bananas. The alcohol is only noticeable as a warming in the back of the throat and in my belly. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and a little syrupy with a very low/smooth carbonation. The drinkability is pretty high especially with the big alcohol content. Overall this is a decent beer, but not something I would ever seek out again.

Draft at Brew’d Pub. Clear deep golden color. Very malty, this one, and pleasantly sweet without being cloying.

22 ounce bottle. Bright, brassy gold color. Small white head. Earthy, fruity malt nose. Sweet toasted malt flavor with notes of bubblegum citrus hops. Complex flavor has notes of caramel, tropical fruit, vanilla and alcohol. Overall, a nice tasty Maibock.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a crystal clear orange-amber color with a thick one finger white head that has good retention. The head fades over time to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The nose of the beer is sweet and fruity with heavy notes of apricot, peach, and apple as well as a good showing of a sugary caramel smell. Along with these smells comes some other aromas of a bready and doughty smell along with a little bit of a hop aroma of a grassy and floral nature. Taste – The taste begins less sweet then would have been anticipated from the nose, but does contain a decent amount of caramel and a lighter fruitiness of peach and apricot. Along with these flavors is a good showing of a bready flavor. As the taste advances the caramel decreases with the bready fruity flavors getting slightly stronger and being joined by some grainy pale malt flavors. The caramel loses much intensity by the tastes end, but is replaced by a new light apple flavor that develops later in the profile. All the while some quite light hop flavors of a grassy and floral nature develop on the tongue and, with the other flavors, end up leaving a smooth, somewhat grainy, fruit sweetened, bready flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The thicker and chewier body is fantastic for the bigger bready flavors of the brew all while the lower carbonation helps to allow for the lighter hop flavors to be sensed and to nicely complement the fruity and malty tastes of the brew. Overall – A rather tasty Maibock overall. Thick and bready with a good showing of fruit and just enough hop to keep it more balanced and rather enjoyable. Quite tasty.

From a bomber to a tasting glass. Pours a golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of fruity lager yeast like grape skins. Almost tasted like grape juice right after my coffee. Easy drinking.
