COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Life is meant to be enjoyed as much as possible, and this brew is here to help. #005 is an homage to our existence: Lots of richness, many pleasant moments and just a hint of bitterness to keep it real. This is a malt-forward Maibock that delivers big flavor and a nice depth of character, a beer that’s definitely worth grabbing and hanging onto. Much like our time on this planet. Life is sweet, folks — drink it in!

Poured a nice dark gold with a decent head and lacing which followed. Aroma was mix of sweet malts and off hops. Taste is malty initially but then followed by mild hop bitterness and a hay-like finish - kind of weird. Palate was decent. Overall, this was drinkable but it was a bit off from what I was expecting.

nuplastikk (4566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2014
12oz bottle. Filtered orange-tan body. Sweet, rich,malty aroma, relatively true to style. A pretty decent beer. Not exactly going to hang with quality German stuff but sessionable, clean, drinkable, fresh...OK. One of the more enjoyable offerings from WBC so far.

frpilz (111) - Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Smooth, easy drinking german lager. Not as much flavor as this style should have. Great color, low head, smooth, pleasent. Good with a weisswurst. Masks alcohol well. Needs just more flavor.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Sample at the tap room. Clear amber color with a medium thick foamy white head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, fruit and hops. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, earthy hops and fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draft. Goldpour. A decent lager and in my opinion lacking a chunk of the diacetyl that the capital version has.

twindadplus2 (593) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Clear amber brown color with a small tight white head. Aroma is lightly toasted malt and sweet cereal grains. .sweet malt flavor with a hops spice note carrying through to the dry finish. Medium bodied and smooth with light carbonation.

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with bubbly off-white head. Aroma is big on the caramel malts, toffee, and dry fruits. Taste is grainy caramel, meh. Not my style.

wlajwl (3926) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Aroma is pale malts/beery and slightly perfumed. The flavor is pale malts, vanilla, an off chemical note and a beery finish.

akoeninger (454) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Dark golden color with medium Carbonation. Aroma of sweet butter. Sweet buttery and pale malt taste, faint grassy hops. I have a lot of hope for this beer, there seem to be some faint strange metallic elements to it that will hopefully be worked out in time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden-orange, thin white head, and thin lacing. Biscuit, caramel, orange, and mild alcohol. Full bodied, syrupy, malt dominant, alcohol notes. Malt sweet, mild bitterness, and alcohol note finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7154) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear light-medium orange with a sticky whitish head. The aroma picked up honey and bready malts plus some sharp, unpleasant, cleaner-like stuff that got more assertive as it warmed. The flavor found similar.. sweet, slightly underattenuated malts at the core with cleanser and dry herbal bitterness around.. sharp, tangy cleaner on the finish. Light-medium bodied and dry on the palate.. moderate carbonation.. not very pleasant to drink.
