This is a beautiful ale, honey in color and a fruity, sweet start with a creamy finish. One of the best beers I've ever had.

The beer is a clear deep orange with a thin head that dissipated quickly. The flavor profile had a barrel-aged component that lessened as the beer warmed. There was an almost candy-like sweetness with earthy understated hops. The body was good and the carbonation was on the light side.

Can, 2 months old. Color is a light amber, with a faint nose of caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet caramel malts, ripe dates and apricots, some hops. Toffee. Brown sugar. Mouthfeel is medium and it goes down smooth and easy. Damn, this is good.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Deep orangish yellow with a good head and lacing. Smell is grassy sweet but subdued. Taste is malty and a bit earthy. Good beer!

Pours a clear honey gold with minimal white head. Smells of caramel, mild hops, and malt. Taste follows the nose exactly with a little sour. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall this is a stellar maibock!
