Review from notes. Had this in 12oz, bomber and on tap. This review is from my 12oz try.
Pours into Great Lakes pint glass an orange, honey like color with about a quarter inch of head.
Sweet malty smell with a nice bit of hops in the mix to be sure.
Taste/Mouthfeel velvety warm mouthfeel with a nice mix of malt and crisp hop that's upfront and warms with a clean finish.
Not sure if I could have more than 2 or 3 in an evening, but very solid and a well done maibock. I actually preferred on tap to the 12oz bottle, the bottle had a bit more bite where the tap was a little more balanced which had me finishing and ordering another in no time.
