AROMA: Malty with a slight Barnyard aroma. Not much hop aroma to speak of. APPEARANCE: Deep golden color with a nice white head the quickly fades to a very thin layer on the beer. Some lacing TASTE: Rich maltyness with some spicy hop notes coming through. Good bitterness that evens out the sweet malt perfectly. There is a hint of caramel, maybe from a decoction mash. The alcohol is there in the finish and complements the beer nicely. PALATE: Crisp and fizzy on the palate. Medium body with a slight oily feeling left in the mouth. The Alcohol leaves a long finish. OVERALL: Really good Maibock. Perfect for an early spring day where is still chilly enough to want a big beer. Very Good!!!

On tap at South Street Maifest. Pours pale yellow with a thin white head with just a little lacing. Aroma is of bready malts, fruits, sweet malts, grassy hops, some spicy hops, and some pine. Taste is about same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, slightly bitter, medium-short finish. Overall, a decently tasty, easy drinking beer that went nice with the bratwurst I had with it.

Onslow (1242) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pour from a 500ml bottle. Clear deep golden brew with one finger of white head that lingers on. Great lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, Aroma of caramel and spice. Taste is sweet sweet sweet caramel up front, very malty, respectable hops in the finish with a spicy aromatic floral push that blunts the sweetness, though still leaves a sweet finish. As it warms to room temperature a bit of alcohol becomes apparent. Excellent palate.

Nice golden color for a lager. Easily the maltiest lager I can remember. Germans know their beer.

S_Side_Smitty (558) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Pours light yellow-gold with a medium white head. Aroma is nice light grains and some faint molasses & clove. Taste is very bready with wheatfield grains and heavy syrup. Has a heavy mouthfeel and a slightly odd clove flavor that comes out in the finish. Overall, not bad.

Cybercat (3800) - Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours clear golden Amber with a thin eggshell head. Crisp aroma is malty and fruity with a hint of hops. Flavor is boldly malty and surprisingly hoppy, and has a nice fruity underpinning of pear and banana with a little apple. Refreshing, enjoyable! Texture is fizzy, firm, a bit powdery, leaving a sweetish malty and fruity finish that has a snip of hops and honey. Rock out with your Bock out!

joeneugs (3845) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle purchased at 41st ave. liquors in Capitola just past its best by date. It pours a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is malty sweet with notes of fruit and honey. Very mild floral hops. The flavor is mildly bready and lightly toasty malt. Some distant notes of dried apricot and honey with slight floral bitterness in the finish. Light bodied for the style but still flavorful and drinkable.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, bready, fruit. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
