"Mystery Beer" at Green Dot Stables in Detroit for the week of February 24th. $3 for a bottle. Bottled in November 2012. Since I had it straight out of the bottle...
1.) I won't bother going over the appearance.
2.) I won't be able to really give this beer a fair shake.
Smell: It's your typical maibock. It has a sort of "dusty" and dirty malt aroma with plenty of sweetness at the end of each whiff.
Taste/feel: Follows the nose, for sure. Has that gritty malt flavor, but a perfect amount of sweetness.
Brief review, and probably not a very accurate one (I was already three deep on an empty stomach), but I feel my ratings probably aren't very far off. Not necessarily something I'd seek out again, but definitely something I'd try again.

a passable but incomplete maibock for me, i am left wanting for more carbonation and a quicker finishing experience, not as spring feeling as the style usually delivers either. caramel colored beer, rather still after a minute, sits lazily in a white wine glass. the nose is sweet from the grain, but a little stale too, not as fresh as it might be. no hops to speak of, and a lager yeast i have seen before. the flavor is a bit one dimensional for me, coppery caramel toffee flavor from the grain, and thats it. no german interest, no balancing hops, not even a drying bready yeast profile to wrap it up. not bad at all, devoid of off flavors or weirdness, but not as interesting or as tradition as i like these to be. the body is big enough for sure, but more bubbles would really help this out. one bottle is enough, especially given the only sort of disguised alcohol strength. not bad, but i wont miss not having it in my fridge anymore.
