4.03/5 rDev +1.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A- Slightly hazy with a nice amber color and low head retention.
S- OK, so I read the ingredients. I got some nuttiness from the nose and got some weird apricots so I had to glance. So I got the munich malt but the apricot and fruitiness were apparent. Hops were absent, however.
T- My favorite part. Nice and clean drinking. Come to think of it this is my first helles/maibock that I've reviewed here. The taste follows the nose in the sense that I get a Newcastle nutty malt backbone, but the difference here is the hops. The bitterness lingers and is quite pleasant. Not my everyday beer, but a nice quality ale. I'd say 4.5 just because I was so intrigued.
M- Medium, characteristic of the style.
O- A nice quality beer with a 6.5% kick? Sign me up.
