3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(swing top bottle, with thanks to Jonas) Hazy, dark amber colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Hearty caramely and toasted malty and nutty aroma with present spicy notes of anise and herbs. Sweet flavour with a tinge of bitterness, medium to full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toast-malty and slightly nutty taste with caramel, marzipan and shy herbal accents; moderately sweet toasty and caramely finish. Nice but unusual Maibock. 26.X.11

Bottle. Thick rum-raisin malt aroma initially, honey, a hint hop aromatics. Cloudy dark chestnut, offwhite head. Good balance - roasted maltiness, light earthy notes, apples, lemon hop notes. Relatively lightbodied and sparkly which makes it seem quite fresh and light. grassy, citric and earthy hop notes retronasal. Good one.

It’s hazy red copper with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, nuts and a touch of dark fruit. The flavor is sweet with note of nuts, roasted malt, caramel, fruit and a touch of licorice towards the finish that ends with notes of nuts. A lovely bock, and I love the label - too cute :) (sorry for sounding girly ;)

Bügelverschlußflasche (Dank an Jonas!): Reddish-amber coloured, hazy, little tanned head, caramelly-fruity nose with a tinge of walnut-oil; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; caramel, some burnt malt, in the sweet-fruity finish, balancing hops in the aftertaste. Nice brew.....
