      Bright yellow, low carbonation, moderate head. Sweet, malty aroma with a hint of perfumey hops. Medium body, very low carbonation. Lots of sweet malt flavor, with some DMS. Sweet malty finish. As sweet as a Maibock, without the body, alcohol, and complexity. Thanks to Leigh LaViolette for the bottle!

      Brown, hazy. Smells damn familiar, but I can't place it...some kinda candy, spicy, caramelly. Thick, bitter, chewy, tasty.
