Dark copper in color with wispy and light head. . .little bits of lacing. The nose is very light and seems to achieve a balance, but I can barely detect it. The attack is light and clean. The flavor is pretty simple and it finishes clean. This isn't as big as some maibocks that I have and seems to be geared more towards a good warm weather beer. Very straightforward and an easy beer to drink, so it gets a good drinkability rating. The color is a little dark for a maibock I think and that was really what stood out to me. The darkness and the simple flavor are not in harmony, but the hops and malts are so that is what really matters.

Not the pick-of-the-litter from BBC, but worth the try. The beer falls a little heavy and dark for the style. Showing a medium brown hue with ruby highlights, the head retention, though promising at first, falls quickly. Aromas go everywhere from fig and plumb to estery and phenolic. Tastes thinly sweet with nutty and dark fruit character. Higher fermentation gives off medicinal character, but well masked with estery, fruity, and lightly diacytal-ic flavors. Slick to the toung, lightly thinned, and a little fusal, the body lacks the stability needed in a bock. This beer will probably age well into an old ale, but a little green and flawed for my current appreciation.
