3.9/5 rDev +13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 12oz short brown bottle. Freshness date on the back label.
Appearance: Clear, bright orange/amber with a rocky, foamy, sticky head -- good retention and large carbonation bubbles.
Smell: Musty, metallic, light esters.
Taste: Malty, rich, smooth and medium-bodied. Sweetness is even and full with caramel, bready and toasted malt flavours. Light fruity esters. Hops are spicy, but not overwhelming and aid quite nicely in breaking up the malty profile. Bitterness is a thin flash of grassy-like flavours, almost not perceived. Finish is near clean with residual malt flavours.
Notes: A damn nice stab at the Maibock style. A bit one-dimensional if compared to traditional Maibocks, but if not compared, this is a pretty tasty offering. Personally I enjoyed it. Drinkable, flavourful and sturdy.
Serving type: bottle
