3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dirty blonde with a sweet aroma and a malty flavor. Hops are low and the balance leans heavily towards the grain bill, making this an easy to drink beer with low carbonation and a VERY well hidden alcohol content. Finishes a little slick, but it’s a great new twist on High Point’s already excellent Maibock. Nice!
