Draft in Gainesville. Smells like domestic lager but tastes wonderful. Honey overlaying rich lager. Dark gold pour. One of the first craft beers but still one of the best flavor wise

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy orange copper color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light dark fruit, light pepper, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, pepper, light dark fruit, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Good amount of earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, pepper, light dark fruit, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice maibock style. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
