Clear, crisp, golden hue....nice, stable, solid head...lookin' good.

Nose is sweetness, big and buttery, bold and malty, nutthing wrong with that...very maibock-y...

Taste: yum, same as it ever was! Big malt, huge buttery character, but wonderful, full malt flavor...yum, I say, and yum, I say again...

Smooth, this mabock, tasty, delicious, and so much more.

Ever so slightly hazy, golden amber color. Thin white, but bubbly head. The aroma is sweet with some grainy malt, and some musty/skunky hops. The taste is nice and sweet, maybe a little sticky-sweet like honey, with some good fruity flavor, almost like an apple cider. The hops are quite noticable in this beer and are kind of pine-y and resinous, but musty, in a good way. It was probably the aspect of the beer I like the most. Noticable grain flavor in the finish as well. The mouthfeel ends up a little more dry than what you would expect from how sweet and sticky the malt is initially. This is a very drinkable maibock.

I believe they call theirs Goat Tipper but won't swear to later descriptive noun. Had this today

Pours honey to bronze with a a healthy 1 finger whithe head. Great lacing & good head retention

Smell: Malt, pepper,alcohol & ever so slight butter & bannana hints

Taste: Honey like malt, spicyness, fruttiness, some alcohol bite & more malt. Has a warming and malty finish

MF: chewy with ideal carbonation

Drank too easy, easily the best RB Beer, I've had, rates up there as far as maibocks go also. availible here may & june (so far). They need to have this a regular & ditch some of those corparate/tame beers they keep on rotation. I think eventually this brewery will reailize it's in a town where beeer appreciated & ditch the formulamtic beers ( at least I hope so!)

This beer will not be formally introduced until 5/25/06, but the brewmaster, John, gave me a sneak preview. EXCELLENT!Appearance is a golden almost clear yellow with a nice tan foam that hangs around and leaves nice lace. Aroma is sweet, vinous and grassy. The initial taste is sweet, but there are plenty of hops to dampen it down. The creamy mildly carbonated middle presents a more complex blend of toffee and a HINT of banana esters. A nice dry finish leaves a taste of grain. An excellent example of an American maibock that is true to the European standard.
