Poured from 500mL bottle into a pint glass. Bottle says best by 3/5/13, so we should be in good shape, freshness-wise.
Appearance: medium golden hue with a haze-free body and a robust effervescence. Head poured two fingers of frothy ivory foam which subsided into a one-finger layer, where it stayed. Not bad at all.
Smell: aroma is malty with a hint of spiciness. There seems to be a little alcohol heat, as well. Not bad, but not as clean as I'd like it to be.
Taste: light, sweet malt with a light graininess to offset the sweetness a little bit. Bitterness is quite low. I happen to like sweeter beers, so this appeals to me.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and concomitant creaminess. I like it.
Overall: this is an interesting and tasty, if a bit sweet, maibock. As I said, I like sweeter beers, so this works for me.
Serving type: bottle
