It took me some time to find this beer, let’s see how it goes.
Golden amber color with a nice thick head with good retention.
Nice malty and nutty aroma with grassy hops. Not shy like in some pilsners.
Sweet malty flavor with notes of caramel, apples, minerals and grassy hops. Hints of peppers, pine, honey and booze.
Dry with a persistent bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation.
I was surprised of how much malty this beer was. Not my favorite style, but it is a respectful beer.

This is a great beer one of the better maibocks. It pours a slight reddish golden with a small head that leaves a little lacing. It smells of wonderful roasted malts with hints of nuts. The taste is of roasted malts with a nice balance of bitterness from the hops to round out the taste. It goes down smooth although I like a bit more carbonation than this beer seems to have. A nice beer on a hot afternoon.

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.
