L: Pours brilliant copper gold under a 1” fluffy and clingy white foam collar that produces thick lace. S: Bread and spice. T: White bread and a little darker bread crust, grain and hop spice with a moderate bitterness. F: medium body, medium carbonation, smooth and creamy, O: Worth a repeat – the creaminess and the malt balance the hops well.

My first post. Great tasting beer with a kick. This is my first maibock I've tried, and now it is my favorite beer.

I don't know if it's just me but this is one of the better looking, tasting, and smelling miabocks I've had.

on tap at the MSP airport into a shaker

this is an old standby, along with the EPA, Great Norther Porter, Pils, and others from Summit. Pretty prickly and hoppy for the style, with some orchard fruit notes and lots of sweet honey malts as well. On the substantial and full-bodied side of the style. Not top of the line, but still appreciated.

Great example of the style, well made Maibock! Very inoffensive, good level of alcohol.
