2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is of caramel malt with hints of brandy. Taste is a strong sweet caramel and lots of peppery alcohol. Very dry, crisp mouthfeel. Tastes as if it may have been aged a bit in a barrel. Strong hop bitterness. Lacks complexity and depth of character. Drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful copper color with an off white, fairly quickly receding head. Nose is light caramel, light toffee, light leather. Flavor is toffee, caramel, toast, with a somewhat biscuity finish. On the sweeter side, could be a tad dryer. Pleasant carbonation.

Central Market bottle. From my experience with maibocks (which is not much) this seemed pretty true to form. They always seem to be a little alcohol forward; this one included. Good but this is not really my style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
A malt forward aroma. Some caramel also noted. Pours a clear amber with a rapidly dissipating off-white head and minimal lacing. The taste is lightly sweet. Strong malt flavors combined with bread, caramel, and a touch of grain in the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Almost a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, I liked it. While slightly sweet it was subtle and not cloy at all. It went well with lunch - rice, corn, and black beans. Yumm

from notes: poured amber with a small white head that disspated really quickly. the smell consisted of some citrus, alcohol, and hops. The taste i didn’t care for, mostly alcohol and hop bitterness.
