2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Phoenixville location, July 2006, named Han Maibock. An orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is very light with notes of caramel and butterscotch. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of caramel and butterscotch, but also with light citrusy notes from the hops, leading to a dry and slightly bitter end, where the caramel keeps lingering.

Pours copper, with a great head and lace. Aroma of strong honey, malt, fruit, hops, apples, and grapes. Tastes of honey, with fruit, malt, and hops at the finish. Great honey taste and aroma. Very similar to Stoudt’s honey double maibock, but I think this one is better. A fantastic beer.

In short: A golden lager a bit on the sweet side of things. Not what I’m looking for in this style
How: Tap at brewpub, Phoenixville location. One of the RBSG 2011 bus-trip pit-stop. Sold as “3 Legged Peggy Maibock”, I’m assuming this is the same beer as the one simply called Maibock
The look: Clear golden topped by a small white head
In long: Typical lager nose with also some forest floor and soft candies. Taste has grainy oily cereals, soft candies, a bit of caramel, soft white bread, some herbal hops, some citrus fruits, a light herbal spiciness sensation. Active tickling carbonation. Like a cranked up version of their Helles Golden Lager I had minutes before. It is nourishing but not the most refreshing of lager (especially for a maibock that I usually find refreshing). A little too sweet for the style. That style of beer should be very sessisonnable, this one wasn’t. Overall this was a boring lager but I would be lying if I said that drinking this beer again is the last thing I will ever do. The last thing I will ever do is die.
