Bottle - small foramy head, dark gold color, VERY sweet malty aroma and flavor, not much in way of hops at all - guess that’s what it’s supposed to be, a little too sweet and generic lagerish tasting for me tmoreau (4365) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a small, Czech-pils type glass in two stages. First pour showed a clear, orangy gold with nice, rising effervescence. The second gathered up bottom sediment, and was quite hazy. Both showed creamy, off white head foam that reduced rather quickly to a ring & bubbly film, but left some lasting, clingy, ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was typical lager/pils scent, light toast to the malt, and a touch of caramel sweetness. Basically sweet throughout, the flavor also presented some light esters, low but noticeable hop bitterness, alcohol presence, and some resulting warmth, all in a medium body. Not bad, but the persistent sweetness, though not cloying, rendered the beer less clean & crisp as I would have preferred. Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Muddy Orange Color, Huge Head Dissipated almost immediately leaving only a couple of strings of lacing. Sweet, caramel, malt, just a hint of light bitter at the end, although sweet dominates this one. Real smooth for this ABV, easy to drink Good For what it is. OK. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Nothing exceptional here. Sweetish but very drinkable. Bready with some honey and caramel. zoucrew102 (1874) - - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle, imperial maibock version. Aroma is minimal but a hint of maltiness. Pours cloudy copper colored with a light, white head. Light refreshing beer with a lot of malt and a crisp bite on the finish.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is bread with a little bit of roast on it. The hops poke through with a grassy note, then on a second sniff a more citrus/grapefruit nose. Appearance is very light amber color, almost golden with a thick white head that lingers around for a little while. Taste is pretty good with the hops coming to the forefront then a little bit of the toasty note of the malt. Palate is medium to low carbonation, light in the mouth feel, a light crisp aftertaste. Overall, It’s not a world beater, but it’s very drinkable. Cheers! onceblind (9663) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2013
Hazyish coppery orange with a fading white head. Smell is like honey and toasted biscuit, with a slightly boozy doughy lager yeast. Flavor has a more pronounced doughy lager yeast flavor, with some smooth biscuitiness and a mellow sweetness. Very low bitterness, doesn’t really feel imperial. A fine helles, but tastes like nothing special. Still quite good though. Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
"Mystery Beer" at Green Dot Stables in Detroit for the week of February 24th. $3 for a bottle. Bottled in November 2012. Since I had it straight out of the bottle...
1.) I won’t bother going over the appearance.
2.) I won’t be able to really give this beer a fair shake.
Smell: It’s your typical maibock. It has a sort of "dusty" and dirty malt aroma with plenty of sweetness at the end of each whiff.
Taste/feel: Follows the nose, for sure. Has that gritty malt flavor, but a perfect amount of sweetness.
Brief review, and probably not a very accurate one (I was already three deep on an empty stomach), but I feel my ratings probably aren’t very far off. Not necessarily something I’d seek out again, but definitely something I’d try again. FloridaBeerGuy (10) - Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Pretty decent seasonal. Good food pairing beer. Has a bit of sweetness and bitterness too.Would pair with Spicy food well hence the Big Easy marketing. Good Beer for your Mardi Gras party....compares to Abita Mardi Gras Bock favorably Travlr (24759) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Hazy amber color, medium white head. Aroma of caramel. Taste is sweet and malty.
