On tap at Capital Brewery poured into a Capital Brewery Pint glass.

Appearance- A golden color with reddish brown tint with very little white head.

Smell- Fresh bread and a slight woody and piney hop smell.

Taste- Bunches of malt perfect and I do mean perfectly balanced with a very light piney hop flavor.

Mouthfeel- Great carbonation with a scary smoothness.

Overall- The lightness and breadiness with complementing hops and perfect carbonation make this my favorite maibock.

A- Medium dark golden color with a little bit of white head that disipates quickly

S- Lots of sweet malt. Little too sweet for my liking but not obnoxiously sweet

T- Again very sweet. Some hay or something along those lines to mitigate the sweetness but its light

M- Really smooth for a spring seasonal. Doesnt come across as light as I'd like for something to drink when it's warm out

O- Definitely above average but nothing mindblowing. Some bitterness would make this amazing
