3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Shiny gold body with abundant small to medium sized particulates, presumably from dry-hopping, and a tight sudsy white head. Aroma has robust malty sweet cereal qualities typical of a maibock/heller bock, plus a nice bonus of stonefruit and tangerine hop notes. Flavor is doughy and moderately sweet with pleasant spicy hop characters. Some gravity asserts itself on the palate, but sufficiently balanced overall. This is presumably fresh and a good, updated adaptation of an Old World style.

50cl bottle pours a hazy brownish orange with small off-white head that lingers but leaves little lacing. Smells like a malty doppelbock. Aroma has lots of sweet malts, bread, butterscotch, some floral hops and perhaps some peach. Taste is on the sweet side with increasing maltiness in the middle, ending with a long almost sour finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Body is medium with slight carbonation. This is a well-balanced maibock worth revisiting. wlf (587) - DENMARK - SEP 13, 2016

0,5 l bottle, Bought at Hof Luckmann, Bissendorf, Germany. If you ever be in the Osnabrück or Bielefeld area, visit them! Orange golden in the glass, little bit unclear. Big white foamy head. Looks good. Hop on the nose. Maybe with a little bit alcoholic elements and hints of burnt plastic. Taste has a balance between alcoholic bitterness, hop and a malty background. Increasing alcoholic sharpness. Later more floral hop influences. Strong and complex Heller Bock.

Bottle 0,5l @Biergasthof Schiffner. Bright orange colour, no head I talk of. Fizzy orange pop nose which continues into flavour. Very distinct flavour. Well balanced. bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle. Blonde, hazy. Floral citrusaroma. Medium bodied. Citric hopbitter flavor with floral notes and tropical fruit. Slightly alcoholic. Malty sweet floral hopbitter finish with tropical fruit. nearbeer (5413) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 25, 2015
50 cl. bottle. Orange-amber body has some very fine particles creating a foggy haze. An island of meringue and ring of creamy foam sit on top. Nose is pine resin, light citrus zest and lemon toffee. Taste is tamer resin, honey and mildly sourish citrus toffee. Some toasted bread and dry grassy notes on the finish. Medium body has medium carbonation and no hint of the larger abv. Finish leans dry. Kind of a style buster and it’s a tastier brew than most I’ve had in the style. hawanna (3296) - Freising, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2015
