12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 2/10/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep gold color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of orange zest, plum, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange zest, plum, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, plum, apple, honey, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Maibock style. Good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

This is not my typical style of beer, as I am a bit of a hop head and an IPA lover, but in an effort to continue trying different styles and flavor profiles, I picked up a bottle of the Big Easy.

A: Poured into a pint glass. The beer was clear with a medium to dark amber color.

S: Sweet and bready/malty aroma.

T: Sweet with minimal hop bitterness, indicative of this beer style. The high alcohol content comes through slightly as well.

Overall: This is a OK beer to drink. The higher alcohol content seems to reduce the drinkabilty of the beer.
