Transfer from BA review on 4-2-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a light golden amber color with a big just off white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass Smell – The aroma is mainly of a bready smell mixed with a light caramel aroma and a moderately floral hop smell. With these smells comes some other lighter notes of a pine and earthy hop as well, creating a rather pleasant aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with some bready and caramel flavors. Upfront there is a lighter pine flavor as well. As the taste advances some more hop flavors of an earthy and light floral nature come to the tongue. These new hops are accompanied with a slight dwindling of the caramel sweetness and pine. In the end, more floral and earthy hop comes to the tongue as well as a light spiciness to leave a somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is average to just below average in thickness and chewiness with a carbonation level that is average to above average. The slightly thinner body and average to just above average carbonation made it one easy drinking brew. Overall – This was a rather easy drinking maibock at a very reasonable price. While not super complex or massively flavorful (for the abv, although it dose have a very nice flavor profile) it dose have a nice flavor blend with good transitions and a nice finish and drinks very easily for a 6.9 % abv brew. Overall great for the price and a good brew to try and likely go to again after you give it a fair chance.
