Pours a golden amber into the pint glass. Nice half inch or better head. Dissipates fairly quickly leaving spotty lacing down the inside of the glass. Sweetish aroma. Tastes of pear and licorice. A nice maibock. I haven't had this before, but will have it again. Schell's makes a good beer when they try.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Decent golden color, clear, thick white head that clings to the glass.

Strong sweet malt aroma with some bready notes and a touch of sulfer. The hops balance nicely.

The flavor is much the same as the aroma with a good malt complexity that accents the breadiness. The hopping is pleasant, but feels a bit overdone and lingers a bit to the finish.

Overall, this one is very drinkable and I would definitely buy it again.
