3.28/5  rDev -17%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Very coppery orange color (interesting). Very little head and what does form fades quickly.

N - Nice spicy, hoppy notes. Some bready malt aroma wafting up too.

T - Honestly, I have no idea what a true Maibock is supposed to taste like as this is the first one I've ever had. Nice clean hoppy flavors up front that immediately hits the sides of the tongue with an uber-sweet malty body that lasts all the way to the end. Also some residual bitterness riding out to the end.Downside is the sweetness can get a little cloying - but maybe that's the true nature of a Maibock?

M - Not watery, but not chewy. The sweet maltiness detected in the taste definitely carries over in to the body of the beer.

D - Quite drinkable, I thought. Only deterrent is the aforementioned sweetness that has a tendency to override the palate-cleansing hop flavors.
