A- Medium dark golden color with a little bit of white head that disipates quickly

S- Lots of sweet malt. Little too sweet for my liking but not obnoxiously sweet

T- Again very sweet. Some hay or something along those lines to mitigate the sweetness but its light

M- Really smooth for a spring seasonal. Doesnt come across as light as I'd like for something to drink when it's warm out

O- Definitely above average but nothing mindblowing. Some bitterness would make this amazing

Pours a nice clear golden amber with white foam. Has some good looking carbonation going in the glass.

Aroma is light malt with a tiny bit if hop.

Taste is malt with a bit of sweetness and a little hop to balance it out. Well balanced.

Light mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Overall a great beer. Very clean taste and easy to drink. Overall probably my favorite Maibock. I look forward to it in the spring.

When winter starts coming to an end and I want something that isnt thick syrup black and bitter and I start craving something refreshing this is my favorite beer.

This beer tastes like spring. It is refreshing and malty and is the perfect potion to take overhopped beers out of your pallete.

I savor this one and in fact one of the greatest tragedies for me was when I set a six pack down on a wet floor to put on my coat. When I picked it back up the cardboard was wet and all six bottles hit the cement floor. I coulda cried.

Malt, malt, malt with just a hint of hops.

Like the spring wind blowing through young budding aspen trees this maibock makes me want to bring back maydances and maypoles.
