2.43/5  rDev -23.1%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Golden color with a two finger head with low retention that disappears completely.
Faint aroma of malt and floral hops and notes of booze.
Flavor of sweetened malt and booze. Hints of apples and timid floral hops. Dry aftertaste.
Light body with medium carbonation. Alcohol has a slightly numb effect.
Given the light body and low malt and hops, alcohol is apparent and not harmonic. Though not so out of place as it is in some Malt Liquors. Won’t try it again.

Pale amber colour. Pours a little pale head which dissipates. Some sediment visible, giving a minimal cloudiness. Smells sweet, I can pick up malt, apples, flowers. Thick body. Low carbonation. I taste the malt, apples, and sweetness, with slightly bitter hops at the end,which lingers in the mouth. Overall, I really like this beer. It was relatively cheap, and is sweet (which I like) but not overpoweringly so.

A: Pour is "Helles" that is light in color; pale golden with a medium large wite creamy compact head that sinks into decent lacings.

S: Oh, the smell is more like a Euro Strong Lager than a Maibock; marzipan and sweet malt. Bitter hops somewhere way in the back. Kind of bready.

T: A little less marzipan and more of the proper malty sweetness from a Maibock. Bitterhops are balanced with a breadyness.

M: Creamy medium body and mild carbonation. Aftertaste is short and a bit sweet and bitter.

O: Well, cheap when I bought it - you'll get what you pay for - a cheap Maibock.
