COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our annual German style lager, brewed using the finest German ingredients. Light orange in color with a brilliant malt sweetness balanced by just a hint of hop presence. Be careful, this beer is very smooth and drinkable, but it packs a punch.

Growler. Clear light amber colored pour, plenty of continuous carbonation and a thick lasting head with an aroma of sweet malt & honey. Flavor is bready malt, more sweet honey, slightly vegetal and finished with a little noticeable alcohol. Enjoyable Maibock.

Pours orange/amber with white head, aroma is fruit, biscuit, and some caramel. Slight hoppy start biscuity middle and a slightly dry malty finish. Not too bad, really tasty and still drinkable.

Growler from tytoanderso, thanks Ty! Poured a clear, deep golden color with an inch and a half rocky, beige head that receded to a thick layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of moderately sweet malts with hints of honey, some soft biscuit, a bit of grain, and some grassy hops. Smooth, lightly sweet entry leads into a pleasant honey sweetness, a bit of biscuit, and some light fruit (soft apple, light orange) that leads into a soft grassy hoppiness that finishes lightly dry. Moderate carbonation and nice, crisp mouth feel. Overall, a simple, crisp, clean, drinkable lager. One of the earlier reviews claims this is 7.1%, but there is no sign of it. Thanks again Ty for sending me my first growler and a good beer to boot.

Honey nose. Some apple and vinous qualities as well. Malt heavy brew. A pretty decent representative of this style. Nice effort.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Copper brown color with a good 1.5" of loosely packed head. Carbonation dies down quickly, though, and makes one wonder if the beer is under-carbonated. The first sip reveals that it is not under-carbonated. Not a whole lot of lacing unfortunately. Smells faintly of hops and malt, but nothing overwhelming. Lots of bold malt which is perfect. Suggesting a doppelbock more than a bock. There is a bold spicy bitter hops that seems a bit out of place to me. It would be most welcome in a pale ale, but I want a maibock to be smoother. Tastes really good, just not what I expected from the style. The maltiness is right on. No, scratch that, the maltiness is exemplary. But the hops is just a bit overdone. I would not call this brew smooth. I get a sparkly prickly bite from the combination of hops and carbonation. Just a bit too much for me for this type of beer.
