look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

It pours a sparkling clear 24k gold with a large head of foam that shrinks slowly.

The nose has notes of sweet malt, grain, with some spicy notes that I guess are from the use of German hops. A bit of booze sneaks through as well.

I get a big burst of sweetness on the first sip followed by big bready notes. The spicy hops comes in with flavours of oranges, not blood oranges mind you ;^) but they add a nice dimension to what I think is a smooth drinking brew. The sweet notes also almost have a honey like quality to them. The bottled on date shows 21/14.

Like I said, this is a smooth drinker and smooth describes the mouthfeel as well. It feels really good in the old yack machine.

Well, overall, I really enjoy drinking this Maibock. Notice I said drinking; yes, I'm still sipping as it does feel a bit stronger than the 7.8% abv that it is. Not a bad way to stretch out a session with a beer I like, eh?

3.85/5  rDev -2%

A: Poured from a bottle to a mug. Had a light brown color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. OK lacing.

S: A decent aroma that was dominated by malt, with a definite hops presence as well.

T: Tasted of malt, a big shot of spicy hops, and a tinge of caramel in the finish. A pretty solid flavor with a much livelier character than a lot of other maibocks. Not a stunner, but still pretty tasty.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: In general, this is a well made, easy to drink beer. Very vibrant and drinkable.

4.04/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Semi-clear copper body. Light cream colored head with a film of retention. Light spots of watery lacing.

Aroma: Faintly alcoholic with a deep sniff, but otherwise traces of caramel and toffee and sweet malts.

Taste: First of all, for 7.8% this beer is pretty smooth, and the malt sweetness adds to that. There's a faint taste of wood in the finish but not before the caramel and toffee notes do their thing.

Mouthfeel: Pretty smooth considering the ABV, slightly dry.

Overall: A very sweet, clean sipper that goes down smooth. Hinges on being too sweet, but enjoyable all the same.

I poured a bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearance- Clear, deep golden color with two fingers worth of head. Fair amount of runny lacing.

Smell- Sweet malt and caramel aromas.

Taste- Sweet malt and dough-like flavors with some spicy hop notes at the finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and smooth.

Overall- A good maibock and very easy to drink.
