Revisit for me.
Though many a times, I've had this, well, here's my update.
Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy burnt orange color. Slim finger-ed white head appears and quickly burns off right on into the beer. Uh...where's the lacing? Hmmm...alright, whatever (somehow, this happened all of the time.
The smell has that ruddy caramel maltiness blending into sweet biscuits and a slight earthy hoppiness lends it's hand to balance.
The taste was moderately sweet allowing the earthy hops to make an effort to blend. Decent biscuity aftertaste.
The mouthfeel accompanies the biscuits to have about a medium body. Slightly crisp sweetness bends over my tongue.
Overall, glad I decided to revisit this once I understood what a maibock is. In my opinion, Rogue did this one well.
