I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: nice golden hue with a hint of haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy foam with limited retention but a nice lace on the glass. Not bad.

Smell: pretty light aroma, although there's a bit of sweetness here that is appropriate to the style.

Taste: nicely malty with a pretty heavy sweetness and a lightly fruity character. There's also a bit of graininess here; it's definitely springy, like a Maibock should be.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a well-integrated carbonation which yields a surprisingly creamy texture. I quite like it.

Overall: a decent Maibock. It ticks all the boxes of a genuine Maibock, although it may be a tad sweet for my taste.

A- Bought a 16oz. growler pour of this and it was extremely foamy at the tap but not at all a couple of hours later at home when poured into an IPA glass. What little head there was quickly disappeared and left a crystal clear golden ale with no visible effervescence behind.

S- Definitely sweet fruit present on the nose, not an overly powerful smell but it's there.

T- Once I settled into the idea that this isn't a style that I have much (barely any) experience with, I could begin to enjoy it for what it is. It's a complex on the palate ale that is well balanced, crisp in its own way, and easy to drink.

M- I would call this smooth with just enough acidity and life to create some interest.

O- I was happy to stretch my palate from my recent run of IPA, DIPA, and imperial stout. I would like to try this in a bottle to see if my pour took some of the life out of it, although most reviewers seem to mention a rapidly disappearing head. When your mind puts it into the context of a "spring" ale, you could see it as a nice awakening from a winter filled with darker and stronger beer and a nice complement to the fresh dishes of the spring season.
