look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear gold color, bubbly white head, gone quickly with little lacing. Scent is muted and mild, light herbal notes, faint faint caramel sweetness, touch of wet paper. Taste a little more focuses with lightly sweet malt, little in the way of fresh grain, which i like in the style, some herbal splashes on the back end. Moderate body, smooth, decently carbonated. A nice clean take on the style, just would have liked a bit more grain to the taste.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz poured into pint

A-Cloudy pale yellow with pretty much zippo head.

S-sort of a lemony citrus aroma, maybe orange too. pretty sweet smelling

M/T-I can taste the alcohol peeping its head out of this guy. other than that, bready taste along with a tinge of citrus. not too shabby. nice body. eh, second swig the alcohol definately came out

O-aside from the alcohol being present in the taste a little too much for my liking, this is a decent brew, certainly not the best from Victory however

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into pint glass
A - slightly cloudy yellow/amber, leaves about and inch or so head, with a relatively vigorous pour, decent lacing
S - lemon and orange, kinda sweet
T - this is where it shines, it tastes very citrusy, but there is little to no hop bitterness,
M - pretty creamy, but it is a bit thin
O this is a very enjoyable beer, and also my first review, so hopefully I get better at them, One thing to note is I just bought it yesterday, and it is a spring release, so it isn't 100 percent fresh

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into regular pint glass.

A - Poured clear golden color with medium off white head that quickly dissipated leaving light lacing around the glass.

S - Mostly malts and caramel with faint scents of citrus and hops.

T - Sweet malts and grains dominate with additions of honey, caramel and a slightly earthy spicy finish.

M - Medium bodied with above average carbonation.

O - Victory did it again with slightly above average maibock that can be enjoyed during holidays. I would recommend it.
