3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Itís absolutely silly that I havenít rated this beer yet, I sure have had it a few times.
This pours as a nice looking glass of beer, clear, pale golden, with a big white head, & lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma has that honey on grain on booze thing that is really quintessential maibock, although it seems pretty unrefined here, or unbalanced, or something. Itís certainly sweet smelling and itís not unpleasant but itís not especially great either.
The flavor is nicely rich, plenty of honey, plenty of nice pale malt character with a nice zippy herbal happiness and a lightly warming alcohol character. The sweetness is mild, the bitterness is low but well employed, and the malt is bright, the flavor makes up where the aroma was lacking.

This is overall, a decent beer, especially for the style. Bready sweetness, some honey. Tried at the brewery with Vaughn and Amanda.

Light amber with a solid quilt of light creamy foam. Smells of sweet malts, hint of carbboard, artificial cherry, some sweet biscuit. Flavor is quite sweet, some herbal character, some tea, some grain and orange. Medium bodied with sharp, but fleeting carb and a moderately wet finish. Not my favorite.

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, clear gold with a small white head and a small amount of lacing. Aroma is a subtle but gives hints of citrus and yeast. A light and creamy mouthfeel with average carbonation finishes clean. Medium bitterness and lightly sweet. A hint of bitterness lingers. Overall, lacking in aroma which ultimately detracts from the experience but still a solid brew.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice flavor, really easy drinking and great on a warm day yet quite flavorful. I liked this much better than similar beers from some other brewers. Quite enjoyed, will buy again given the chance. I wish Schells had a wider distribution.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear golden amber with a tight thin foamy film. Aroma has solid malt with subtle sugars and hidden hops and some mild honey fruit scents. Taste is smooth and sweet with just the perfect amount of bitterness and again subtle honey fruit in the finish. Palate is medium smooth somewhat creamy and finishes dry. I really like this!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a fairly clear hazy orange color with some moderate carbonation. Aroma has some sweet caramel, yeast, barley and malty notes along with some very mild floral hops. Flavor is surprisingly hoppy at first before settling in to a sweet yeast and caramel finish; Aftertaste is barley-like Palate is light and the carbonation is moderate; feels surprisingly crisp to drink. Easy to drink overall, but not my goto Maibock

Its hard to get around the metallic aroma this has for some reason. If you make it that far the taste is actually not bad, big malty beginning and decent underlying hops.
