This is a nice, tasty, creamy maibock.

Copper with a fairly big white head that shrinks steadily but leaves some top and a hint of lace.

The aroma is sweetly caramelly bread with raisins.

The taste is malty with light caramel, bread, a lot of fruitiness, especially raisins and grapes and a clear but smooth alcoholic wine quality that is appropriate for the style and adds nice warmth and extra spice. It has a light grassy-pine bitterness.

Medium nearly clear copper to brown color. Foamy white head. Super sweet, malty nose. Really inviting roasted carmel malt sweet taste through the entire glass. Almost melted in your mouth. Very easy to drink, medium bodied and refresing. Very sweet, but still an easy crisp finish, nicely balanced. ABV seemed high, but wasn't listed.
