3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper bodied. Small white head. Nose is fruity and malty and sweet smelling. Some yeast, some caramel and some candy in the nose as well. Taste is malty and sweet with yeast notes, fruit and caramel. The yeast is more pronounced than most maibocks. Body is medium with soft carbonation. The finish exudes more yeast, chewy malts and caramel while reinforcing the fruit flavors and some grains. Not bad but different than I expected.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy copper-orange with a thick frothy white head. Head slowly fades leaving plenty of lacing. The aroma is reserved, fruity with slight malt and yeast smells. The taste is sweet malt with some sourness, hints of pepper. There is some lingering hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasant but not outstanding.

Medium hazy orange color - thin head. Aroma is lightly sweet with a hint of spice. FLavor is also sweet, but with a pleasant citrusy hop twang. Nice malty backbone throught and clean finish.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2006 Boisterous malt contingency on this one, backed with slight bitterness. Pours deep brick orange into the glass, with a little head and lacing to match. Malty aromas. Some fruity notes with lots of malt. Nice, full-bodied mouthfeel, with a roasted finish, indicative of style. Always been one of my faves of the Radish clan.
