on tap at brewpub.

light amber with a alight haze and a bone head that has good retention. Lacing on glass s spotty.

The aroma is primarily malt, bt there's more than a bit of hops. The hops are a bit more evident in tasting.

O: a nice, flavorful maibock that is a bit more hoppy than usual.

Pours a hay, copper/orange color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of yeast, earthy malt, nuts, and slight grain. Fits the style of a Maibock / Helles Bock. Mouth feel is smooth and slightly thick with an average carbonation level. Tastes of earthy malt, slight hops, slight yeast, and a hint of nuts. Overall, reminds me more of an Altbier than a Maibock, but still good.

On tap at the brewpub.

A: darker amber, cloudy with no head
S: extremely faint, almost no nose, no head probably contributed to lack of nose
T: hard to identify as a maibock, no intense sweeter malt, has hints of ale undertones rather than lager
M: lighter for maibock

Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a cloudy, slightly lighter amber color. It has 1 fingers worth of an off head that lingered awhile and left some lacing. This has a nice nose. Subdued caramel malts, very faint fruits, some citrus, maybe some grains and earthiness also. The taste is good. Minimal sweetness to it, and just a wee touch of bitterness in the finish. Malts, very faint fruit, hint of earthiness. Just very well balanced and easy to drink.

Aroma - Moderate malt aroma with a subtle hint of toasty melanoidins. Low hop aroma with a hint of fruity esters.

Appearance - Hazy. Amber to light copper in color. Thin head, but none of the beers were poured with a head. Some lace followed the beer in the glass.

Flavor - Sweet and toasty malts drove the flavor. Slight fruitiness with a mild bitterness. Finished on the dry side which went well with the sweet malts.

Mouthfeel - Lighter body than the style would suggest. Moderate to Low carbonation. Clean tasting, no harshness detected.

Overall - Sadly this is not a Maibock despite the claim in the menu. The beer could use an extended lagering period that the brewery probably can not afford. However, it was easy to drink and I could have enjoyed another one had time allowed. To improve the beer I would increase either the hop bitterness or the carbonation and use finnings to clear the beer. I noticed that the haze was common in all the beers on tap.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Hazy, amber-hued body sporting a thin ring of white bubbles.

Smell: Lightly sweet-smelling, lightly toasty malts in the nose with a small, distant fruit note.

Taste: Toasted malts with a delicate sugared sweetness. The knob on the toasted over gets dialed up and the toasted malts develop a cooked bread crust flavor. Minor fruitiness. Lightly floral, spicy hops with a mild bitterness. Drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A tasty, toasty maibock that paired well with the round of air high fives across the bar at another job well done by Terminal.
