Cracking open the bottle of Summit's Maibock, I did a straight pour right into a tulip glass. Tulip glasses enhance the aroma and allow ample light in to review color, they are my first choice for reviewing.
The beer was a deep gold color I estimate about 12-14 SRM with a very pleasant floral and malt mix on the aroma, it had a nice 2 finger off-white head that lasted several minutes before falling to a standard ring at the edges of the glass.
I tasted the beer, and what a wonderful balance of what I am pretty sure are Hallertau hops (some of my favorite) and pale malts with a hint of light caramel malts. The balance between the specialty grains, regular malts and hops was exquisite, and pleasantly surprising! It is quite possibly the best balanced beer I've ever tasted.
The feeling in your mouth was wonderful, light and airy with a bit of heft that let you know you were drinking a hearty beer, but it wasn't trying to kill you.
Overall I highly enjoyed this beer, it had a lot of what I love in beers, good specialty malts, great hop selection, and a superb overall job.

I poured a bottle into a pilsner glass.
Appearance- Clear golden-yellow color with a fingers worth of head. The head lingers for a little head then gradually fades to a thin cap. Fair amount of foamy lacing.
Smell- Biscuit and grain aroma with some grassy hop smells as well.
Taste- Biscuity malt flavor with some grassy and earthy hops for balance. Slight honey-like sweetness.
Mouthfeel- Light bodied and smooth. An average amount of carbonation.
Overall- Very good beer and very enjoyable. This may become one of my go-to spring beers.
