2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear amber with a small white head. The aroma has a big sweetness, maybe pineapple. The taste has a very strange orangey pineapple sweetness. Not a fan.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Harpers Pub.
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber body with a creamy light tan head.
Aroma: Huge caramel.
Taste: Huge caramel with hints of fig. A bit cloying by the end.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Solid beer, but a too simple. This is a caramel bomb, but again, it’s solid.

On tap at the BNA 8 party at World Cafe live Philadelphia
Huge bready malty pilsner aroma with enough spice to balance it out. Sweet honey like bready pils flavor with a spicy bitter hop bite. Great Mai bock!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft from a keg right after the race -- this running of the ruminants featured not one, but two three-legged participants, including two-time winner, Peggy, and this year’s champion, Simon. Deep but still transparent orange with a lacing bright white head. Taste is semi-dry with low bitterness, great light lager body, honey and light white grape and middle-of-the-road malt. Not very different from their heller Bock; this one’s just named after a goat!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap from SideBar in WC. A reddish-brown pour with no head when it arrived from a freshly tapped keg. Caramel and hops I pick up from the aroma right away. It has a nice sticky palate with a medium-thin body. Good, not great but definitely not a disappointment.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the stagshead. Pours golden with thin white head. Not much on nose. Tastes of honey, grains, basement, floral, and light caramel. Kinda boring lager buts crisp and not unpleasant

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2013 2012 Peggy at Maibock Fest. Pours golden with foamy white head. Lager, hay, grass over sweet malt base. Smooth, heavy body. Very sweet. Low bitterness. Hard to remember after the other 5 beers.
2013 Simon is similar.
