UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 Draft at Bennett’s BBQ in Gatlinburg, TN. Served in a mason jar, deep golden color with white head. Aroma of toasty malt and faint floral hops. Taste adds some notes of caramel, slight nuttiness and earthy hop bitterness. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with clean finish. Easy drinking maibock went well with my BBQ platter. coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 6, 2013

Pint on tap. Clear shiny copper with a lasting disc of cream. Mild nose of dry grass and caramel. Taste is toffee, toasted pecan, light citrus zest and dry grass. Medium body is silky smooth with medium carbonation. To the malty side as per style, but finishes crisp for a delicate balance. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

This poured a copper color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is nice with some caramel, dark fruits, and biscuit. The flavor is a bit sweet with some caramel, oats, and some bananas. Slightly bitter finish. Overall I thought this was a pretty good beer. Tmoney99 (14492) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Solid toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced nutty sweet flavor with the same smooth finish of average duration. Better than my expectations.

Appearance: Dispensed from the tap a clear, light copper body with a modestly-sized, white head.
Smell: The aroma is a bit simplistic, smelling essentially of lightly toasted grains and little else.
Taste: Sweet, sugary opening of pale and pils malts with light nuances of toasted grains and caramel. Initial fruity hint of golden raisin is superseded by a taste of orchard apple. Modest European hop character and bitterness. Finishes dry and fairly clean.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Fares well enough for the 0.5 liter dose. It’s an average, acceptable maibock that errs on the side of ease of drinkability. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2010
