From a single into a NB globe
A: clear light copper, 1 finger head, little lacing
S: malty! biscuits, caramel, toasted grain, and a touch of earthy spicy hops
T: layers of delicious malt here, first some toasty grain, then a little sweet caramel and toffee, then some really faint melon and apricot, as well as some faint spiciness and mild bitterness, finishing with more moderately sweet malty biscuity notes.
M: for me, a little too much carbonation, though objectively it would be "medium". Pretty smooth, very quaffable.

Overall: this is great, a real pleasure when you're in the right mood. I've been drinking this one for years since my little bro used to live a few miles away from the brewery. It is quite different than both the (very different) German and American maibocks I know best, but I think it it is still a delicious version of a style that I love.

A: Pours a light brown, with a minimal, quickly-fading, sticky head.
S: Mild fruit notes, some caramel. Very mild.
T: Very sweet and fruity. A nutty touch, mildly bitter finish where it really comes out.
MF: Creamy, sweet.

Overall: One of the tastiest beers I've ever had.
