Arrived from the bartender with very little head. Liquid is a copper brown, like red-tinted tea. Smells of sweet grasses, bread and caramel. Some noticeable floral perfumes as well. Flavor is crisp-grass or fresh vegetables; also sweet like caramel or toffee. Enjoyable to consume, has good weight and nice balance between crispness and creaminess.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this last night at Maifest in Covington. In the plastic cup it appeared semi-clear golden blonde to amber with a nice big white head that lasted until the end. The aroma was noble hops with some grassy and grainy smells. The taste follows the same path with sweet grainy flavors leading the way to caramel/butterscotch. The mouthfeel is full and has some residual sweetness like most of Moerlein's beers. It left the inside of my mouth feeling kind of sticky. Nothing outstanding but overall not a bad offering from Moerlein.

I’ve done my part for the betterment of the community today. This decent, but not overwhelming brew is 6.5% ABV, at least according to the online menu of the restaurant Christian Moerlein just opened in Cincinnati. I submitted an update to the powers that be at BeerAdvocate. You’re welcome.

STYLE: Maibock / Helles Bock

ABV: 6.5%

LOOK: Golden orange, iced tea. Nonstop rush of bubbles.

NOSE: Malty dominance, bitter honey, walnuts.

MOUTH: Bananas, lemon, bubblegum. A little too banana maybe, which says to me neither “Spring” nor “Cincinnati.” Whatever. There’s a dry, not altogether pleasant finish that’s a tad too sharp to follow the sweet fruity notes.

I am not one of those reviewers who goes into all that stuff. All I know is I liked it. it has some different notes/ tastes and i believe is distinctive. I really enjoyed this and have gone back for more. It seems my local Kroger didn't sell it too well and has a lot on hand, good for me. $8.99/6pk
