Clear dark amber to red colored beer with a medium sized tan colored head. This is decidedly dark for the style.

Smell is sweet and nutty. Strong malt aroma that is about 1/2 Molasses and 1/2 Brown Sugar. That sums this up all malt and nuts.

Starts out mildly malty with a distinct raw almond taste. Grassy hop and thankfully the taste isn't near as malty as the smell. Slight taste of burnt sugar and a slight salt flavor. Still this is mostly malt and nuts.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a decent Maibock. Wouldn't be my first choice from the brewery though.

Got this one at the SLS in Cedar City

Pours a very nice clean/clear golden dark amber color, some carbonation, with a little fizzy off white foamy head, with some minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some sweetness. The taste is mostly malty, with some sweetness. Medium body. Overall this would be a way better brew if it was not this old. Some of the SLS SUCK when it comes to getting in fresher brews, because of this you need to look at dates, which I did not do in this case.
