3.77/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a completely clear crisp bronze color. Fuzzy, bubbly white head dissipates steadily leaving a thin partial layer of bubbles on top of the beer. Not much lacing is left.

Aroma has a sweetness to it interspersed with a bready malt backbone and some esters and yeasty notes. Maybe a bit doughy? Touch of floral hops also comes through.

Taste follows the nose with notes of bready almost doughy malts. Hints of sweetness, yeast, floral hops, and a lingering sweetness. Mild bitterness on the back end that does some to balance out the sweetness, but it stays a bit too sweet.

Feel is smooth, with medium carbonation. Finish is a bit dry - maybe a bit chalky.

Overall this is a solid maibock, but its just a tad too on the sweet side.

3.52/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500mL canned 2/21/17 poured into a krug at fridge temp 7.2% ABV. Listed drink by date of 4/17/18. The beer is more gold than copper and has plenty of off white head that settles into a ring around the mug and nice lacing. The aroma is weak but both malt and noble hops are present. The taste starts with a sweet bready taste mixed with a floral bitterness at the end. The sweetness is not cloying and the bitterness is there only to equal the malt. Mouthfeel is a bit chalky and doesn't finish quite as dry as I would prefer. These are both minor points but I mention it to give meaning to the score. Carbonation is good and adequate for style. Overall, this beer is good. I've had a couple other maibocks recently that are better, but this is still drinkable and solid. The value is an A+ as these are $5.99/4 pk of 500mL cans at my local Aldi.
