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.

Pours a cloudy, bright orange color, with a thick fluffy white head that disappeared quickly.

The scent was of citrus and notes of sweet malts.

The taste was of sweet caramal malts, toasted bread, and some citrus.

Medium body, pretty smooth, moderate carbonation.

This was pretty average for the style, not really something I would look for again.
