4.33/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Tawny copper color. Not much head due to it being a draft beer (and the bartender topping it off), but what there is leaves a nice lacing.

Smell: Mild malt aroma, and a very strong flowery bouquet, like carnations or daisies or something; sweet and grassy. Appropriate to the maibock style and the celebration of spring that it represents, I suppose. But I've never smelled anything like it in any other beer.

Taste: Malt and hops, with a hint of buttery diacetyls. Clean, well-balanced, and nicely rounded. It's not a complex flavor, but it proves that complexity isn't necessary for a sublime brew experience.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with moderate carbonation, enough to give it some texture. Very nice.

Drinkability: Quite good. Not filling, nor cloying. You could drink several of these.

Overall: A nice beer, worthy of the "maibock" designation.

Poured into a pilsner glass, has a copper color with a hint of red. Transluscent. Creamy head, and I mean creamy. Very tiny bubbles come on top and form a whip-cream type head.

S - Roasted malt and that unmistakable bock smell.

T - Very malty with that great bock taste on the back of the tongue. Some straw mixed in on the very front.

M - Medium carbonation and very smooth.

I think this is a very good bock beer. A great taste that goes down easy. Great for spring.
