So I was nervous about this beer at first mainly due to the very light color (since I am more of a darker beer fan) however in this review this surprised me threw and threw.

Color is a VERY clear almost water like with a light tint of yellow (just for fun) almost light corn color.

Smell is hard to pull out. Takes a few minutes but you then can really get the German aromas flowing. The multiple smells really surprise you and make you keep wanting to pull more from the glass. With the German malts and yeast you also get a very clean smell and nothing pungent or overwhelming.

Taste is what really got me. Going with the clean taste this is a very smooth drink. You can get flavors rolling with the full tongue full and taste the MUCH different ingredients. The Hopps are light and near the end with the yeast and malts.

Overall this is a very relaxing beer even coming from a slighter higher ABV 6% this has very little punishment for the after effects.

Pale yellow body with a foamy white head and big carbonation bubbles. Mild pine hop aroma with some wet grass notes. Light flavors of cereal and old lemon rinds; big hop bitterness. Medium bodied; crisp and dry finish.

An okay bock beer. Perhaps this one is a bit old as the smell was rather weak and stale. Still, it has that light, lager malt style with a bigger hop bitterness. Worth a try...

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).
