Pours a nice blend of colors including amber, copper, golden, straw, and a bit of rust. Frothy one finger white head sits firmly on top. Retention holds pretty well and leaves a nice lacing down the glass. Toasted grains with a sweetness. Floral hop presence with hints of lemon. Honey aromas are also quite noticeable. Doesn't smell crisp, but gives off the impression it'll leave a slick trail behind.

Smooth and quaffable. Toasted grain gives off the impression it was dipped in sweet honey as the honey notes hold the brew together. Ever so slight caramel presence. Floral hop notes play a nice supporting role to the honey flavors. Not sticky on the palate, but leaves a slug like trail behind as it passes across the tongue. Toasted grains with a touch of bitterness in the finish tickle the taste buds. Excellent maibock from BBC. Definitely one to pick up if you can, especially for the price tag.

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.
