Poured on nitro into a pint glass, the beer is a very bright, vibrant, copper-red color with a creamy, white head that clings like cement. Nose is toasted bread and grains, with a subtle crystal malt character. Light bodied, with a toasty crisp flavoring, and caramel malt sweetness. Light, but bold. The aftertaste is malty, with a slight roasty character. The finish is cloying, with a bit of malt linger.

"The small beer brewed from the same grain as Maximillian as a sparged parti gyle beer."

This is, in fact, a red ale, according to the MWBC info document, where it is actually listed as "Little Max Red Ale." It's a "small beer" made from the batch of imperial red ale, Maximillian (look up parti gyle; I had to).

Poured a dark reddish-brown with a thick, creamy, white head ( nitro). Extra toasty malts in the aroma, and some floral notes coming through. Very smooth and thick with malts, toasty, roasty, hearty grains, with just enough hop bitterness for a good balance. Medium-bodied, but surprisingly flavorful; otherwise enjoyable and very drinkable.

New (to me at least) offering from the guys up north at Marshall Wharf. Yes please. This is listed as a an amber, and does pour a nice darkish red brown color, healthy head. Toasty aroma, biscuity, light herbal hop notes. First thing I notice about this beer is the smoothness - nice even flavor. Balanced between cararmel malts and a nice hop spice. Again, super smooth and creamy mouthfeel, very soft. Almost like a nice copper ale or an alt. Very quaffable with the low ABV and interesting enough to have a few. Another solid brew from MW.
