Review of growler drunk hour after purchase:
Crystal clear gold body - perfect! Head is cloudy-like, falling in craters leaving a swiss-cheese foam cap. My first on tap attempt, the head faded fairly fast once I started drinking, but it wasn't quite so on this pour, so up to a 5.

Nose has a crusty bread malt side with a floral to stone fruity side, perhaps just a bit of sweet beery (blueberry). A decent nose, not powerful and one that faded fast, but was easily revived with a swirl that re-capped the head on my beer.

A white bread flavor brings a decent sweet side to this beer. In my first brief notes I had that a neutral to grassy/floral bitterness balanced this. This sitting, I'm getting a similar fairly neutral bitterness, but it has a little spice bite (versus grassy) to the floral aspects. Fruity notes in between include golden delicious apple, a little of that blueberry from the nose, and some peach fuzz. A nice hard tickle of carbonation up front, but it smooths out fairly quickly. A clean beer, for sure, not overly dry or sweet in the end, with a very light lingering bitterness.

A quite enjoyable beer. I'd like for it to be just a little more dry or bitter in back for my tastes, but will buy it again in a heartbeat.

From Estucerveza. In Bavaria hefe glass. Playing Rube Works. Sweet, with honeylike notes and some alcoholic flavors, but pleasant and pretty easy to drink.

Half litre bottle, poured into pint glass.

A: Golden, clear, medium sized head, decent retention.

S: Floural noble hops which gave way to honey.

T: Malt forward, hints of apple, which gave way to a slight boozy burn.

M: Moderate carbonation, medium to slightly heavy body.

O: Not bursting with flavour, but subtle. Less boozy and cloying than other Maibocks.

Poured a cloudy yellow body with good head and lace. Airy, grainy, earthy aroma with some pils malt sweetness and bits of hops. Smooth, light to medium bodied, this beer tastes great as I like sweeter maiboks and the flavors are balanced. There are notes of dry breadiness (always get this from lagers) and earthy hops that combine well with a sweetness ranging from almost tropical fruits to caramel and/or pils malt like sweetness (can't really discern what exactly makes this beer sweeter than other maiboks but there is something in it that is really sweet).

Had this on tap tonight. Not knowing what to expect from this style and I was very impressed. Came in the glass as a nice golden hue. Smelled of grass, hops, yeast, bread, and fruits. The taste followed the nose but was very fruity but not overly sweet balanced by the slight but nice bite of hops. This is one easy drinking beer and I look forward to drinking this again but it seemed like a great spring beer instead of a winter beer.
