3.45/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden amber colour, very cloudy indeed. Head is white, foamy, sticking around all right. Bit cloudy for a Maibock, but nice-looking.

Smells very malty, hints of cereal grain to it. Pistachio, marzipan and a touch of cinnamon. Maybe a slight piney hop over the top of it. Not bad.

Taste is pretty simple. Largely malty, with a slight fruity edge midway, maybe green apple on there. Could use a bit more tang as it's all very sweet, with a hit of booze towards the back. Nutty characters throughout the palate but mostly just caramel malt. Not bad, could use more layering of flavours.

Not hot, but a bit of booziness. Very dry on the back.

On the sweeter side of Maibock and could use some bitterness to cut through.

Tried on-tap at the Local Taphouse as part of their Italian SpecTapular festival.

Pours the colour of peach juice: cloudy to boot, but with a weak white head that leaves a minimal ring. No consistency to the body and no lacing. It looks pretty poor for a maibock, to be honest.

Grassy malt on the nose with some sweetness, and organic characters of wood shavings and a lilting vanilla bean fragrance. It's interesting, but despite the interest, it's pretty mild and weak.

Light and dry on the entry, with a touch of flowery fragrance. Mid-palate we get into some mild phenolic notes, which would work in a maibock if there was clarity of vision elsewhere. Instead, we get a really flat mid-to-late palate, with a grainy, yeasty finish, and a dose of woody, old hop character on the finish which does no one any favours.

Feel is flat and dead.

Overall, I'm unimpressed. There were some good characters to it, but the poor characters trumped the good characters quite convincingly.
