Dark amber brown with a small bit of quickly receding head. Smell is very nice, with some buttery pine nut flavors overlapping malts and hops on the back. Taste is much the same, with similar components. Mouthfeel is light and sharp with good amounts of carbonation. Feels perfect on the back of the pallate. It is crisp and refreshing, but it has plenty of flavor hidden within it to make it quite a good beer for a warm summer evening.

My first maibock/helles bock

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my snifter.

One finger thick tan, off white color head that dissipates rather quickly. Deep amber color. Clear appearance. Slight bubbles. No lacing.

Malt presence in the nose and some balancing hops. Mild to moderately strong aroma otherwise. Some malt associated sweetness.

Flavor is very much the nose with strong malt presence upfront that is well balanced by some bittering hops afterwards. Dry finish.

Medium boied feel. Low to moderate on carbonation. No astringency. Slight hop bitterness in the finish.

Overall a good style. From BJCP guide, the ale performs well overall. Could have used more alcohol warmth.Hop presence is subtle yet good, and is felt as you drink.

Style Rate: 4
Personal Rate: 3.75
