4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Has a nice amber color with no carbonation and a sweet malted smell. Taste is also very malty/sweet and finishes with little bitterness. Overal a great beer, probaby the best I had from this brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Attractive crystal clear copper gold, with very little head or lacing. Aroma is malty and lager-ish, with little in the way of esters or fruitiness. Some mild german hopping. Flavor is big bodied and malty, with a clean sweetness and little hopping to speak of. Very subtle. Carbonation is perhaps a little high for my tastes. I like maibocks, and this one is decent, although I still think Smuttynose's is the best.
