Orange-amber-copper all in one, which is a pretty cool hue. The head is ivory in color with a hint of orange, is firm and looks like it will last for a while. As it descends, the cap comes to resemble a rich vanilla milkshake sitting atop the beer. It doesn't last very long, though it ends up leaving a decent amount of lace in spotty sheets.
I'm not ashamed to admit that I have no earthly idea what a maibock is supposed to smell or taste like. Therefore, I can't really say if this is a good example of the style or not. The flavor profile is pretty well-balanced, with malt having the slight edge.
The beer is somewhat caramel-like, with an earthiness and a restrained spiciness. The spiciness becomes bolder and more interesting as the beer warms. Again, I'm not sure what sort of mouthfeel a beer of this style should have, but this one seems fine. It's medium-full and has a pleasing smoothness.
Dead Guy Ale may be the most ubiquitous craft brew in this city. Every store that carries beer seems to carry it. It's obvious that it's a quality offering, but it doesn't stand out as exceptional. Even though I'll probably drink it again, it won't be anytime soon.

M-Weak subtle carbonation which is a nice complement to the style of beer
T-Wonderful tartness and a sweet counterbalance that works well
