The clear dark golden color with a 1/4" white head is served in a shaker pint glass. Sipping leaves some small patches of lacing on the side of the glass.

The aroma is mostly about the malt with some spicy and floral hops in the background.

The flavor is much as expected from the nose but the hops are a bit more noticeable and the malt sweetness is against a background of light bitterness.

The crisp mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite smooth with some very light but persistent carbonation.

On the whole this seems a well brewed beer that I'd be happy to have again. The flavors are clean and identifiable and much what I'd expect from a Maibock.

Thanks to ShanePB for this bottle.

A: Pours hazy light orange color with tints of gold in it. A 1.5 finger white foamy head forms upon pouring and has decent retention. Nice white lacing forms all around the glass.

S: Some bready malt, light citrus fruits, lemon, and a little bit of grain. Rather light.

T: A nice combination of light citrus fruit, honey, and some grainy malt. There is some bready malt on the backend. Finishes sweet.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Drinks smooth and rather easy.

O: A pretty good beer. Hoppier than others in the style I have had. Probably not something I would go to all the time, but could see it being nice on a hot day or paired with a salad actually.

Had a couple reviews written in e-mail that I never posted. This beer was consumed (and review written) in late June.

Picked up this bottle at the Stoudt’s Brewery in PA as we drove through on a college campus tour for my daughter. Maibock is an underappreciated style in my mind and I always enjoy these.

Color is on the edge between gold and amber. Slight orange tones straddle the divide here. The head is pillowy/foamy rises at least two fingers and has slight retention. Some lace.

Aroma is fruity, with light caramel notes with some sweetness and a hint of breadiness.

Just a touch too much sweetness for my liking here. Bread notes and a decent amount of bread notes. Spicy hop notes come in late along with a slight taste of honey. Can detect the slightly elevated ABV here. Not hot, but it’s there.

Carbonation is a little strong and almost prickly. Give it a non-smooth mouth feel.

Not among my favorite Mai-Bocks, but still good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a deep dark amber, very clear with lots of streaming carbonation from the bottom of the glass, but no head. Slight amount of lace. Smell was very bready and grain like, with a hint of a slight bitterness, but definatly bread like. The flavor followed suit as it was highly malted and full of grain like flavors. Not much hops to balance, but ever so slightly dry finish. Kinda thin in feel, not enough carbonation to give it that silky smooth feel. Overall this was a decent offering from foothills, and an average representation of the style. The alcohol is very, I mean very well hidden, I could swear this was a 4% beer, was shocked to see it at 8% before my review. Overall definatly give this one a try if you can.
