Pours brite gold, thin white head. Cracker malt aromas, floral hops, hint of sulfur. No dms, no diacetyl. Cracker and bready malts give way to gentle floral hops, a touch of mineral crispness. Medium mouthfeel, well carbonated, slight bitterness lingers on the tongue inviting you for another drink. Great showcase of pilsener malt, floral noble hops, and clean fermentation profile. I love this beer.

There are styles I associate with summer, fall, winter, but not Spring. Hello Maibock! Pours a golden cloudy amber, smells of malt, a balanced taste of malts and hops with floral, grassy, fruity notes. Crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Beautiful.

Nice golden color, small head, nice sweet smell, not over powering. The taste is of a nice Maibock, but don't be fooled, it is currently being brewed at 6.9%. Overall a great beer!

Spicy yeasty aroma with I first pour the bottle, but that fades and leaves toasty bread and light fruit. The flavors hint at light berry and bitter herbs (like a bitter liqueur), then the toasted bread pops in the subtle grapefruit, earthy, and floral hops carry this out. It's more crisp than your typical maibock and dangerously drinkable. It's more like an imperial kolsch or maibock-pilsner hybrid, but that's only because it's so much better than the average maibock. Go drink this.

Collaboration with Sandlot folks

Been waiting to try this one for a year

Pours a nice light golden with a semi -thick white head. Lacing is sparse. Looks really nice

Aroma is a bit subdued. Lightly toasted biscuit and some zippy hops. Takes a good inhale to get these.

Flavor is just about spot on. Undertone of biscuit malt carries the sweetness all the way through. Nice fresh hops flavor, Noble and grassy, but not abrasive. It's quite well balanced throughout. Starts with the malt and sweetness and ends with a crisp hop/yeast zest. The transition is long and well blended.

Must have this and Backcountry's Maybock side by side. Should be one hell of a Pepsi challenge
