4.44/5  rDev +17.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Copper, highly carbonated, little half finger off white cream head. Filtered but not to crystal clear. A little nice lacing.

S: Syrupy, maple, with a fine refined toastiness to the malt that comes in the end. Apple sauce, slight smokiness to the toasted malts. Caramel and cereal like malts.

T: Caramely sweet, apples and toasted malts, very slight dough yeasty aftertaste. Bitterness in the end is the herbal oil, like oregano oil. Apples are present. Some floral when swooshed over the tongue.

M: Thick bready and syrupy body, low carbonation.

O: Flavours are much clearer and crisper, as well as scents, than Dargunner’s (my first Maibock was Dargunner’s.) Really am privileged to find a beer that Martin Luther remarked about as the best beer in the world. Found this one in Nashville and it has been one of the first on my ‘to find in NA’ list. Here I am drinking it on one of the last days I have in NA before heading to China. First heard of this on ‘Two Guys on Beer’ a show I love but that’s no longer going.

Is this the original Maibock? IF so, and if this recipe has remained relatively unchanged, I would say improvements have most definitely been made on the style since.

What struck me was, first, how dark the beer was. Instead of a lighter blonde/gold color, which I have become accustomed to expecting in a "true" maibock, this is a medium-dark amber or, better, a tawny hue. Huh? Some head rises on the pour (into an official Einbecker glass) but it falls and breaks apart in time.

The most dominant aroma was the second thing that struck me - caramel. Some browned/toasted bread roll coming through, too. Yeah, there's some of that familiar mildly herbal/spicy, floral phenolic character - not nearly vibrant enough - but it's otherwise predominantly light, yet potent and dense caramel. Not bad. Not great. Not what I was hoping for.

The taste follows its boldly malt-forward smell rather closely. Alcohol does come through more, however, only softly, on the edges, and far behind the musty, caramel semi-richness. The taste is almost all malt with minimal grassy/floral and fruity notes. Not bad, once again, but rather dull and olden (oxidized perhaps?). The body is not quite as mellow or restrained as the flavor. Some pleasant roundness and muscle, some slickness, yet it's ultimately clean.

Hey, not what I was expecting. If you are ever, somehow, in the mood for a malt-weighty, honey-ish, caramel-busty German beer - this is your drink.
