3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft... Clear, orange lager with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is malty and floral; notes of wet leather, sweat and marciano cherries with a rumor of mint. Malty and sugary flavor. Hops are an afterthought at best, but this is consistent with the style (which is too sweet for me). Medium-bodied and fizzy. Lightly sweet finish. Good craftsmanship, but maibocks just aren’t my thing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lightly hazed orange, creamy off white head with great retention. After drooling over it for 20 minutes and letting it warm, the aromas finally played out. A very nice nose on this with wafts of peppery and earthy German hops, caramel and toffee, with a light breadiness, and hints of golden raisin. Extremely well balanced throughout with hops and malt living the good life. Medium to full bodied, pillow soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. A fantastic rendition of a classic Maibock.
