Notes: A classic grist of Vienna, Pilsner, and Munich malts and a dose of noble hops come together to create an easy-drinking full-bodied malty lager with an inviting deep golden hue.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Canned 5/11/20
POurs a med frothy head with med retention, a bit of lacing, very hazy deep orange color

Nose is a lot like a hefe but not quite a hefe, lots of creamy wheat like, with citrus esters, a little tangerine, doughy malt, touch of bubblegum, a little lemongrass, touch of candy as well

Taste brings more hefe characters, creamy wheat, doughy, a little honey note, light phenol spice notes, again a candy like profile with a bit of sweetness but not much, into the citrus again with some tangerine, a touch of fruity bubblegum esters, light spicy hops, a little floral, herbal, and light bitterness, mild sticky but drier finish, citrus, little spicy hops lingering

Mouth is med bod, higher fizzy carb, flash of alcohol warmth

Overall not bad, definitely more bock like than most maibocks, and more hefe like, a bit more hoppy as well, but otherwise decent beer

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that left some specks of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of spicy hops are present in the nose along with hints of toasted malts.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the flavors of toasted malts are a little stronger. There are also some faint hints of alcohol towards the finish.
M: It feels a touch more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I thought that this beer was a good representation of a German beer style and particularly liked how the spicy hops helped in balancing out the malty flavors in the taste.

This is great. Nice persistent white head, golden 98% see-thru body. Sweet, sticky, toffee and bread on the nose, with a little booze coming through. Bready, buiscuity, hoppy aftertaste. Nuts and raisins. Delicious
