Thanks to ShanePB for this bottle.
A: Pours hazy light orange color with tints of gold in it. A 1.5 finger white foamy head forms upon pouring and has decent retention. Nice white lacing forms all around the glass.
S: Some bready malt, light citrus fruits, lemon, and a little bit of grain. Rather light.
T: A nice combination of light citrus fruit, honey, and some grainy malt. There is some bready malt on the backend. Finishes sweet.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Drinks smooth and rather easy.
O: A pretty good beer. Hoppier than others in the style I have had. Probably not something I would go to all the time, but could see it being nice on a hot day or paired with a salad actually.

Had a couple reviews written in e-mail that I never posted. This beer was consumed (and review written) in late June.
Picked up this bottle at the Stoudt’s Brewery in PA as we drove through on a college campus tour for my daughter. Maibock is an underappreciated style in my mind and I always enjoy these.
Color is on the edge between gold and amber. Slight orange tones straddle the divide here. The head is pillowy/foamy rises at least two fingers and has slight retention. Some lace.
Aroma is fruity, with light caramel notes with some sweetness and a hint of breadiness.
Just a touch too much sweetness for my liking here. Bread notes and a decent amount of bread notes. Spicy hop notes come in late along with a slight taste of honey. Can detect the slightly elevated ABV here. Not hot, but it’s there.
Carbonation is a little strong and almost prickly. Give it a non-smooth mouth feel.
Not among my favorite Mai-Bocks, but still good.
