Pleasant sweet, fruity ale. I don’t understand how this could be considered a maibock, however. Estery, fruity, honey-flavored characteristics are not unpleasant, but certainly resemble a West Coast ale more than a lager. Nice warming character; reminds me of a lower alcohol version of Lagunitas’ Brown Shuggga’.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Taphouse, Cph. Slightly hazy golden-amber colour with a thin off-white head. Sweet aroma with caramel and toasted malts, fruits - a herbal sweetness from honey. Citrus hops. Taste is sweet. Medium body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity. A very nice take on the German beer style. A bit far from the originals.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 Poured with almost no head. Orange in color. Fruity smell and a sweet aftertaste. I didn’t like it as much as I thought it would.

Bottle at Piccadilly, Bodø. Has a slightly hazy, red orange colour with a small head. Aroma of fruity hops, berries, leather, caramel and apricot. The flavour has more leather, wood and fruity hops. A little dry in the ending. Has a slick mouth feel with a balanced bitterness. A fruity and nice pale bock.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brun clair / peu de bulles / un style de bière que je découvre avec celle-ci.
Un gout sans doute malté certe mais aussi cidré sans la fin de bouche aigrelette. Un côté très liquide en bouche. Je ne sais pas trop quoi en penser finalement. ça a le mérite de m’intriguer

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pure Amber colour with creamy thick white head. Fantastic aroma of juicy oranges. Just so powerful and clean with a biscuit and bread malt nose. Amazing. Taste is a fruit and spice explosion with sweet orange, earthy herbs, toffee, biscuit. Finishes with something that’s not quite pear but somewhere near. Wow is it a fantastic taste and aroma. Finish leaves a little sweet biscuit behind with a little pithy orange too. Very clean yeast character, no overpowering or cloying esters. Love it.

Smooth honey aroma. Enjoyed from a bottle, so I couldn't judge the appearance. Smooth going down. Good mouthiness. Finishes caramel and malty.

Pours a clear copper with a decent head and large bubbles streaming up the side of the glass. Aroma is a bit like a season. Taste is a beery hop. Not bad but definitely different. Medium mouth feel
