Pours copper with a white head. Smells fruity with mellow hop presence. Taste is syruppy and fruity. Much more sweet than I am used to in a maibock.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2006 Draught pint at the brewpub on 4/29/06
Brassy-bronze body has light copper hues with a golden overtone. Off-white head is well-retained, receding to partial cover, eventually, with little to no lacing. High clarity and a rush of bubbles.
Grassy, lightly spicy hops open up the aroma, with a smattering of honey drops, lightly sweetening things, as a crisp yeast wraps things up on the finish. Baked dough is dry, but not overly aromatic, keeping things light, but adding some complexity to the otherwise mainly pils-like malt tones. Not terribly sour, and not overly bready, with a medium strength and no alcohol apparency. Almost could mistake it for a golden ale, with the dominant honey malt and light, grassy hops.
Some bread mixes with water, as light farmy-hay-like minerals and grassiness add a smooth texture and some spiciness on the end. Grows a touch sourish as it warms, with the munich malt emerging more, but still finishes with a sticky, honey creaminess, fairly sweet. Medium carbonation. No alcohol apparency.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear brown/amber with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet malt (very malt dominated) and light hops. Flavor was more in the same vain...lots of malt and a sweet finish. Still, quite drinkable and nice to gulp down.

On tap at the brewpub. Crystal clear light gold, foamy white head. Sweet, malty nose, just a hint of floral hop. Flavor follws suit, the sweet malt leading the way. Very nice maibock.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Simple and too style. Cracker and doughy malts with a fair amount of sweetness. Hops are non existent really but still not too much out of balance. Decent stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewpub. Aroma of red fruits and big caramel malt sweetness. Flavor continues to feature huge malts with little hop balance. Very full bodied, seemingly tons of residuals. A malt bomb of a maibock.
