This is a very good maibock.

Pale amber/dark gold, it has a small off=white head soon thinning.

Aroma is very subdued maltiness and grass.

Taste is a simple but nice and balanced raisiny-doughy maltiness with peppery-grassy hop bitterness. It is somewhat vague and a bit subdued, but overall quite firm and enjoyable, holding up well to food.

On tap at Haven Gastropub in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, tea, perfume, and fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with perfume and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting perfume-like presence in the aroma and flavor.
