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.
