Almost 2 years on this brew!

Poured into a Westy chalice a very nice slightly cloudy golden dark orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice small off-white head, which leaves some very nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, a slight yeast note, kinda peachy, slight hop note. The taste is pretty nice malty, nice yeast note, kinda fruity (peach) very nice sweetness. Medium body, slightly complex brew. Overall, this is a very nice brew.

On tap in SC.

Very interesting. Certainly one of the most flavorful and complex lagers I've had and, not coincidentally, about the only barrel aged one. Plenty of barrel aging impact but not so much so as to mask some of the underlying lager character.

This beer pours a hazy golden brown and has good carbonation with little head and very little lace. It was poured on draft and has a little bit of an astringent mouth feel the smell is very subtle and the flavor is characteristic of a maibock but not very good.

From a bottle (with an awesome label), pours a cloudy golden color, great carbonation and head that laces the glass. A bit active for this style.

The nose is very malty, apples, floral, candied caramel and sugar. The flavor is sweet, wheat, light malts, faint citrus. The alcohol is really present, making this drink heavy and every bit of its 7.8%.

Overall, pretty good. I don't ever crave this style, but this is an above average interpretation.

A: Poured from a bottle to a mug. Had a light brown color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. OK lacing.

S: A decent aroma that was dominated by malt, with a definite hops presence as well.

T: Tasted of malt, a big shot of spicy hops, and a tinge of caramel in the finish. A pretty solid flavor with a much livelier character than a lot of other maibocks. Not a stunner, but still pretty tasty.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: In general, this is a well made, easy to drink beer. Very vibrant and drinkable.
