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.
