Presents a deep amber gold, slightly cloudy and clean fluffy head.
Sweet smell of fruit, maybe apples or mango. Very malty in with a ESB type of body, but a noble hops flavour. Less munich character than expected from the style, but a nice blend of malts on the palate. Slipperly and slightly buttery in the mouth. Does not feel like 7% alcohol. Quite a bitter finish, maybe a tad overkill for my liking, but probably required at 7% abv. I read Rogue use their ale yeast for this one. Could actually tell it wasnt a lager, but a clean ale - not that it mattered!
A brilliant beer, quite simply one of the best I have ever had. Can't pick a beer that is similar, as proper Maibocks are fairly different in character. Had to pay a massive AUD$18 for it, but it wasn't money wasted.
