Poured from a 12 ounce longneck into a Shaker pint glass. The label and name of this beer honor the excitement of nearly drowning after your raft tips over (what fun!!). Freshness date of July, 2013 (reviewed in late April). A moderate pour produces a 1/4 inch snow white head that reduces rather quickly, but leaves lace sticking to the sides that resemble snow ghosts. Nice carbonation. The color is a pale golden. The beer is supposedly unfiltered, but I don't detect any haze.

Hops dominate the aroma, but don't overpower. I think I detect a smell somewhat like corn mash, but I don't believe that's an ingredient. A slight tang, reminiscent of melon, is apparent in the taste, leaving a slightly sour but pleasant aftertaste. The hops lend more to the aroma than to the taste per se, but do offer a bitty bit of bitterness (how's that for alliteration?). The burps are the best part of the taste, with pleasant malt and tangy hops lingering in the nose.

The paleness and light body is somewhat surprising for a bock beer, even for a Maibock. Overall, I would say this highly drinkable beer offers an alternative for those who seek a lighter beer, particularly when the weather becomes more sultry (which, for the record, it hasn't yet where I live).

Tasted 3 July 2012 (Independence Eve?), reviewed from notes.

Pours a very pale straw yellow with gold highlights. Just a faint haze obscuring the view through the glass. Nice visible carbonation. One finger of very white, relatively dense head. Decent retention but not much lacing.

Smells of pleasant lager yeast, noble hops, and some light bready malts. For a light lager, it's quite nice, starting out full but finishing crisper and lighter.

Taste is quite a bit more malty than the smell - bready and wheaty, with a rounded chewy flavor. A touch of banana combines with the bread to yield... suprise - banana bread. It's a very full flavor, especially as it warms up.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly full-bodied for a light lager. Smooth fade-away finish. Nice.

This beer is better than I'd expected. It's full-flavored, full-bodied, and with a robust malt presence that I like. Tasty, though I don't know that I'd call it a true summer beer - it's heavier, warmer, and less refreshing than I like my hot summer day beers to be.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pilsner glass at 42 degrees

Appearance: A 1 finger frothy foamy off white head with good retention...the clarity of the beer is cloudy with some yeast and effervescent particles floating within the beer. The color of the beer is a pale yellow. Overall appearance of the beer is very good.

Nose: There is a pils hop aroma that is slightly spicy and floral. The malt is very lightly toasted and a slight yeast aroma. Some underlying aromas do exist but they are too hard for me to detect.

Taste: The hops are the dominate flavor in this beer. The aroma is spicy, perfumy, floral flavor that is clean. The malt in this beer takes a backseat to the hop profile in the beer. The malt is very lightly toasted and with a very mild flavor. The yeast is noticeable but still backseat to the beautiful hop flavor.

Mouth feel: It is carbonated, slightly spicy, and coating.

Overall: The body of the beer is light and the finish is light and crisp. I have never really been a huge fan of Bayern beers however this one is an exception! The flavors is something perfect for a hot summer day and a very good beer overall. Next time I wouldn't mind taking a ride in the Tonka truck

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with a touch of haze. Head is a thick finger of creamy, frothy white foam which leaves a nice lace on the glass. Nice.

Smell: light, sweet malty aroma with a hint of grain and a light floral component. Somewhat mild, and yet I like it a lot.

Taste: malty flavor with some pear and apple fruitiness, which I love in a beer like this. It reminds me of a light tripel in a lot of ways, which is good. Hops are floral and combine well here; bitterness is low but present. Quite good!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a very well-integrated carbonation which yields a big and fulfilling creaminess. I can dig it!

Overall: I really like this beer. I have a tendency to be partial to maibocks, but I feel like I could drink this all day.
