3.58/5 rDev -9.4%
On tap @ Firehouse Pub & Grill, Meridian ID. Served in a pint glass.
A: Attractive golden orange color with hints of straw...clear, with a creamy white head.
S: Malty with a light hop bitterness...some spices mixed in as well...toasted grains and a dab of honey as well.
T: Crisp, light nuttiness & some grassy characteristics...very bready and surprisingly dry with a hint of sweetness.
MF: Crisp light-to-medium body with decent bitterness and dryness.
O: Not exactly 'quaffable' for my palette and not something I would revisit a lot, but not a bad brew. Solid 'B' material.

I don't know if this review is fair since I didn't know this beer was a Maibock. I thought it was going to be an American Pale Ale, so I was definitely disappointed when I took my first sip.
A- Almost pure orange with a bubbly/creamy head that laces well.
S- Alcohol and sweetness with almost no hop aroma.
T- Sweet and alcoholic with a slight dry hop bitterness that fades into more alcohol.
M- Medium-Heavy bodied with a medium amount of carbonation.
D- Not very drinkable, I could barely finish one.
Again, I don't know if this review is fair. I was expecting an APA. I thought this beer tasted almost like pure alcohol. There was a little sweetness and dry hopiness to the flavor, but the alcohol definitely overpowered it. If that's how a Maibock is, than I'm sure it's a good one. However, I didn't care for this beer. I'm going to definitely shy away from Maibocks in the future.
I do like dupplebocks like Troegenattor though.
