Poured from 650mL bottle into a 20 oz pub glass, beautiful head, 1 finger thick and persistent, great lacing, amber with a little bit of haze.

Nice aroma of malt then hops which surprised me a little, the head definitely releases some biscuit smell as well.

Taste has some hoppy bitterness, but with a good earthy malt background, almost the reverse of the aroma. I get a little oak after the finish in back, but not much.

Mouthfeel is medium, with correct carbonation,

Overall above average to outstanding. I have not tried any other Maibock or Helles Bock, so I was probably a little conservative. Noticing the hops in the recipe, I would hazard that Rogue did their research right on this one. I would like to try it again if I can grab it on tap, which shouldn't be hard.

Serving: 650 mL bottle chilled to fridge temperature poured into a wine glass.

Appearance: Amber and honey hues. Head is 1 finger thick. Leaves lots of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Strong hoppy scent is the first thing to come through. Some malt. Slight biscuit scent.

Taste: A hoppy bitterness is the major flavour of the beer. A light oakiness. Malt comes through more in the taste than the scent as well as a small yeasty flavour.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer, leaves a slight stickiness on the lips. Carbonation is just right.

Overall: Worth the try at least once. Not a beer you can drink multiple in one sitting. Slightly overpriced.

Nice brew here !!, The color I would describe as a cloudy gold color with a decent head. The aroma has maybe a touch of honey sweetness. Bread and malts come out first on the palate and balances out well with the hops. It is very drinkable and almost gets better after a few. Nice job !
