look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Virtually clear orange with touches of haze. A lacy, fine netting of yellow film on top.
Fairly malty caramel malt nose leaning towards toffee with an evident floral hop bite.
Begins as the nose suggests with an appropriate malt heft provided by way of some Munich and (primarily) caramel. Approaches butterscotch, but leans away for any true buttery tones. Turns away from the style a bit by midway, with a subtle but growing impression of black liquorice. No fruitness to be found. Finishes highly hopped, in a floral fashion with a minor grain alcohol flair. If tasted blind, it could almost be mistaken for a hearty british-styled pale ale.
Biggest bodied of the PIBC brews, low carbonation and highly consumable.
EIther a unique take on the style or a bungled one. EIther way, it's not too bad.

A - Copper penny color. 1/4" head down to a cap quickly. No lace.

S - Malty and sweet. Sharp grain. Honey.

T - Fruity. Rich malt. Sweet. Bready.

M - Full bodied. Low carbonation. Long malty finish.

D - Good drinkability. I like maibocks but usually only one at a time.

Growler courtesy of KAV, thanks! Tried 11 May 2011.

Served in the 0.4 L Eder Pils stein. Medium sized tan head. Light carbonation. Clear dark amber color. Aroma of sweet malt, alcohol, a touch solventy. Fairly malty to start, sweet, just a touch of pepperiness. Medium body. Alcohol is noticeable but not too warming. Finishes with a touch of bitterness.

Alcohol sneaks up on you.
