Binny's Orland

Sprecher's Mai Bock poured a beautiful crystal clear caramel brown. Large carbonation bubbles rise slowly toward the 1 finger creamy craggy off white head. The head slowly fades. This beer looks great. Left thick patchy lacing.

Smells of toasted grains and a big smac of doughy breadiness. There's a slight hop spiciness coming through toward the end. The hops add a nice floral aroma. There's also a mild caramel maltiness and a faint brown sugar sweetness.

Tastes of doughy malt and very lightly toasted grains. The floral hoppiness comes across mid to late palate along with a mild wave of alcohol spiciness that you can feel everywhere in the mouth. Mild caramel sweetness shows itself more and more as the beer warms.

Meduim bodied and a little sticky. Even though this beer is sticky the body seems a little light for the style. There is no shortage of hops as is shown by the tingling of the tongue after half a glass. Slow carbonation lets the beer glide through my mouth.

Easy drinker and a nice treat in this early spring type of weather.

This is a surprisingly good beer from Sprecher. I've enjoyed all their offerings I've sampled in the past. I don't believe they get the credit they deserve. Solid, enjoyable brews from a quality brewery.
