Poured a red copper color with 5F head in a Brooklyn Oktoberfest glass. The head slowly subsided to 1F.

Excellent aroma: sweet, strong fruit and malt, perhaps a bubblegum aroma.Very fragrant. One of the best aromas of any Maibock I have tasted.

MF: very tart.

Taste: follows the aroma. Fruity and malty finished with a sharp light bitterness.

Overall, one of the best Maibocks I have tasted. Great continuity from aroma to finish.

Although a colder temp is recommended, I enjoyed this beer more close to 50F, when the fruit and malt is more pronounced. I also like the style better in an Oktoberfest glass.

A - Poured from a BBC bomber into a tulip glass. Nice finger worth of head. Hazy amber copper. I'm surprised by this, I figured the beer would be a little lighter in color. Not much retention and no lacing.

S - Sweet. Caramel mostly.

T - I'm surprised by this. I'm getting almost entirely caramel notes with just the faintest hint of noble hop character on the back end. Bitterness is low to non-existent.

M - Medium-bodied, not much going on here to describe.

O - I read some of the other reviews and they all point out the malty sweetness of this beer, so I'm pretty sure I'm drinking the same thing that they are, but these caramel-sweet beers are just not for me.
