2.4/5  rDev -37.2%

On tap at Capital Brewery. Poured into a plastic cup 9/2/2014.

A- Slightly hazy, darker orange body with a one finger white head that disappears quickly. Not much lacing. [3]

S- Sweet candied sugar, noble hops, yeast, a bit of brown sugar and bread. [3]

F- As in the nose, tastes sweet but it is more of a buttery caramel flavour. Really just not my thing. Also some spices, yeast and bread. [2]

M- Medium bodied, but far too sweet for me to drink much of. Good carbonation. [2.5]

O- I don't mind most maibocks, but this one was far too sweet and a bit too buttery for me. [2.5]

Final score: 2.40

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On-tap at Panther's Pub in Greendale, WI:

Pours clear amber with a thin, lasting creamy head that leaves plenty of lacing.

The smell is mild, but there is some toasted malt that is inviting enough.

The taste is of toasted sweet caramelized bread with an earthy, subdued fruity bitter-ish balance in the warming finish.

It is creamy smooth. Carbonation level fits it very well.

This is an excellent example of the style. Sweet leaning, malty, but with balance, toasty, mildly warming and easily drinkable. A great spring offering!
