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.

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.
