Pours a nice, soft, fizzy head that is surprisingly persistent. Sweet malt behind floral hops. Brilliant dark gold hue. A nice sweet malt (reminiscent of alcohol's sweetness) with floral hop bitterness which peaks to a low-medium bitterness. Then it cascades down with a MONUMENTAL malt finish with floral hops peaking through as it goes.

I LOVE this bier! Perfectly balanced. A Maibock to compete with the best of Germany. Nice, medium hops balanced off STUNNING maltiness. The way these two elements play amongst each other is just wonderful to experience on your tongue.
I eagerly await the coming of Maibock season just for this one (And Lakefront's "Big Easy").

On tap at Capital Brewery poured into a Capital Brewery Pint glass.

Appearance- A golden color with reddish brown tint with very little white head.

Smell- Fresh bread and a slight woody and piney hop smell.

Taste- Bunches of malt perfect and I do mean perfectly balanced with a very light piney hop flavor.

Mouthfeel- Great carbonation with a scary smoothness.

Overall- The lightness and breadiness with complementing hops and perfect carbonation make this my favorite maibock.
