Once again, Schell´s state that they are making German style beer, yet throw together another very average American micro. This one is packed full of caramel malts which make it very cloying and viscous. Drink it for the alcohol content if you must.

(bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a medium white head. Aroma is faintly floral and mixed with some orange zest along with honey-nut cheerios. I’m also getting some spice that takes the form of cinnamon. The flavor holds honey, minerals, spicy hops and a lingering bread-like finish. A little bit of Assam tea is in here as well. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is toned down. This is pretty solid overall.

deyholla (9638) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2016
On tap at Runyon’s. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has sweet grains and sweet bread with a hint of hay underlying. Flavor has lots of grain and straw with a bit of sweet bread.

Medium body, mild taste, enjoyed it but it only stood out next to the three lousy pours that rounded out my flight.

Solid all around springtime beer. Easy drinking, crisp but a nice smooth malt base.

TXBadger (2348) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a clear straw golden color with white head. Cereal grains, floral notes, and some citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean.

Tap at JL Beers. Awful flute glass. Light golden with a healthy head and respectable lacing. The grain and malt presence is enjoyable. Mild bitterness mostly boxed out by sweetness. Relatively refreshing and pleasant. Surprised because it’s late in the maibock season. One of the stronger options from a lackluster brewery.

Bottle - fair size foamy head, light gold color, sweet light malty flavor, mild corn flavor - not bad overall for what it is

It’s absolutely silly that I haven’t 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. It’s certainly sweet smelling and it’s not unpleasant but it’s 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.

perfectly enjoyable.
