This beer didn't really wow me for the price I paid for it. Bought soley for trying a different brew. Not great, not horrible, on to my next new brew!

Great color, but I'm having a tough time placing the flavor. The bottle says hearty and balanced and I'll give it that. Also: I have to ask why they're calling it an ale if it's a maibock. (Aren't those lager yeasts?)

Classic malt flavors with a light crisp lager personality. The malt is slightly caramel sweet, with some grainy barley, light nut and even a bit of coffee bean.

An aggressive pour shows two fingers off-white, soapy head with fair retention and good lacing. Amber brown with some red and very light cloudiness. Smell is not very powerful, brown sugar and bready. Taste matches aroma adequately, with addition of pineapple and some spices. Higher carbonation lingers on front and middle of tongue for half a minute or so. Decent body, not as heavy as I had imagined, a little on watery side. Overall, a good brew, not very complex, but easy drinking and enjoyable. Won't be buying regularly due to price, but will buy again, just the same.
