Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright yellowish golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About two fingers of white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A fairly light aroma of soft malts and wheat grains. Pale malts with hints of cereal grains, biscuit, crackers, wheat, yeast, and a little hay. Some sweet honey scents. Very subtle hints of earthy hops in the background. A fairly standard Maibock aroma, although the honey is pretty noticeable.

Taste: Like it smells, a fairly light malt forward taste. Soft pale malts dominate with a taste of cereal grains, wheat, biscuit, crackers, yeast, and a slight note of straw. Noticeable presence of honey adds to the sweetness. Lightly bitter taste of earthy hops towards the finish. A clean and light taste as expected for the style.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Crisp, clean, and very smooth.

Overall: A decent brew for the Maibock style. Light but has an interesting kick of honey.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours yellow with a white head with good retention and decent lacing. Smells and tastes like yeast, grain, honey, and wheat. Thin. watery, and bland taste. Decent carbonation and light bodied. Not much of an aftertaste. Not worth trying again.

Pours a yellow color with an okay looking head. Nose is sweet caramel and some grain hops. Taste starts off with sweet honey, that moves on to a sweet toffee nutty flavor. A minute amount of hops show up on the backend, but the sweetness still holds through. Mouthfeel is full and really smooth. Overall, this is a nice seasonal to add into the rotation with its flavor profile.

Ok, so this beer tastes like honey water. Before I review further, I just wanted to note this.

A: Golden yellow with 3 finger head. Lots of lacing everywhere.

S: Honey + your typical european lager aroma.

T: Maybe I am biased but I like honey water (when I am sick, etc. Nostalgia? or whatever). I am giving this 4. It tastes like lager with lots of honey in it.

M: It must be the honey making this beer seem more syrupy.

O: I like honey. If you don't, you won't like this beer.
