Notes/Commercial Description:
We brew our Maibock to be hugely malty & subtly finished with a variety of continental hops, with an eye-pleasing russet brown color. Prosit!

A: hazy orange with a nice head and lacing.

S: bubblegum. Sweet grape, strawberry fruit blend.

T: mild and malty with a fruity center and a near peppery end. Allot going on here.

M: solild carbonation generates a building peppery heat with bitter semi-dry ending.

O: solid. I like the maibock.

Pours a light very hazy beautiful golden color. Looks inviting.
Smells sort of like sweet caramel and candy with both hoppy and malty notes mixed. I cant even describe what it smells like exactly but this smells AMAZING.
The taste does NOT disappoint! Im getting some alchohol but mixed very well with all the scents described above. Doesnt stray from an actual beer taste at the same time.
The mouthfeel fits this one great. Very BIG. SOme carbination but that doesnt take away from the heavy smoothness.
Overall its a little different than most maibocks Ive had before but that doesnt mean its not a great beer that shouldnt at LEAST be tried!!
