This is the first maibock I've had in a long while, and because of this I was anxious to give it a try. It poured a golden copper with a small head, and left good lacing. Teh aroma was sweet, some fruits and malts, maybe some yeast. The taste was interesting; sweet and toasted, possibly some honey? Not quite as complex as I'd hoped, but it had a crisp and refreshing feel to it, with an almost buttery smoothness and almost no bitter or sour hints. Nothing spectacular but still good. My palate forgets what a maibock is supposed to really taste like! But this was a fine beer and as far as I'm concerned, a good respresentation of a too-rarely-tried style.

Wow a Red Oak beer that I actually like,pours a deep golden (although not as deep as most of the style) with adecent head that leaves a light amount of lace,aromas of toasted grain and a little wet burlap.Taste has some nice qualities lightly sweet and toasted malt rule without much of that sourness that comes with most Red Oak brews,thin in body but highly drinkable and food friendly.A Red Oak beer with some boldness hmm imagine that.
