Pours a light golden color with a soapy white head and lacing. Aroma is very floral and pine like with bready undertones. In the taste, floral and bitter, with a sweet honey baked bread malt flavor. Well balanced and easily approachable, this golden bock is best enjoyed in a warmer climate. The body is on the light side of medium with a solid carbonation. Overall, this hits the spot when you're looking for a easy drinking lager with a firm hoppy finish.

03/27/14 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Nice & smooth. Slight bitterness. Lacing on the thick side. At the top end of my hop threshold, which is pretty low by today's standards. I like it, but one is enough.

3.36/5  rDev -13%

A: Translucent straw light golden brown, 1/4 inch head, light carbonation visible with lacing toward the end.

S: Fruity, most dominant of which was pink lemonade. Exactly what you want to smell on a hot day when you need something refreshing.

T: Pretty simple and straight forward, "delicate floral hops" is the main taste.

M: Light-medium body with light carbonation.

O: My second maibock in three days, not a huge hops fan, but these were light enough to where it was enjoyable. Great drinkability.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some maltiness is present. Taste is malts, some sweetness, a bit of hops as well, easy drinking for the abv. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
