Appearance is brilliant, crystal clear gold; lots of bubbles from carbonation; frothy white head that settles to 1/2 finger; lacing all around

Smell is pungent earthy and floral hops with fresh bread

Taste follows the the nose with fresh bread and floral hops to start, with a little spicy hop bite. Finishes with mild bitterness

Feel is a bit prickly from from carbonation, but smooth and refreshing. On the lighter side of medium bodied

Overall this was outstanding. The malt and hops blended seamlessly, like eating a piece of fresh bread with a floral and earthy hop spread.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a nice clear amber color with a one finger head of just off-white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sweet and malty smell with lots of fruit of peach and apricot as well as a bit of toffee and some biscuit and bready malt smells. Along with these aromas are some lighter citrus and earthy hop mixed with just a hint of lemon.

Taste – The taste begins with a quite bready and sweet flavor with the sweet being a mix of the lighter fruits that were detected in the nose (peach and apricot). A little bit of orange and grape work their way onto the tongue more toward the middle of the taste, with them being joined by a somewhat grainy flavor. Toward the end, the apricot and peach really intensify and mix with a little amount of an earthy hop flavor and some light hay, leaving a nice fruity sweet and bready flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly lower side for a maibock of 7.0 % abv. with a carbonation level that is average. Overall a little thicker body may have been better for the heavy sweet and malty flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was alright.

Overall – A very easy drinking maibock at 7.0 % abv. with a nice big sweet and bready taste. Well worth a try.
