On tap at The Owl House in Rochester, NY.

Pours a slightly cloudy light orange, with a small half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells kinda faint and weak, unfortunately. A little bit of grassy noble hoppiness, but not much else.

Tastes a little faint and uninspired, too. Some light grassiness, with not much noticeable malt flavor, other than some light cracker, and some light breadiness/doughiness. Some slight lager yeast. Just not a whole lot to get excited about here, unfortunately.

Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel, slightly watery.

A rare forgettable brew from Victory, I thought they would've knocked this one right out of the park.

This is a realy old bottle and already has tons of floaties. It tastes fine however, so I decided to have it and review it. It was Enjoy By April 2011. This beer is probably 3 years old then.

The aroma has lots of bready malt.

The flavor definitely tastes like a maibock. Lots of breadiness and caramel sweetness, some spiciness and herbal hops. There’s also some fruity esters in there too. The middle hits you with a bit of alcohol, but it’s not very offensive.

The finish is pretty dry, despite the sweet flavor.

Actually a very well done beer. Quite tasty and even better than certainly doppelbock options out there.
