COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German Bock bier brewed for the late spring. Golden pale in color with a lot of maltiness, sweetness and body offset by the alcohol warmth of a strong beer. Hoppier than our Münchner, but not bitter. The hops balance the sweetness without dominating. A really "big" beer.

ChainGangGuy (4400) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Appearance: Clear, middling amber-hued body with a modestly-sized, white head. Smell: Sweetish and bready on the nose, with a faint background note of finely-ground spice. Some orchard fruit lovingly rinsed in quality alcohol. Taste: Bready malts, tastes of crumpled sugar cookies, and a sweetish akin to golden syrup with a faint backing of light-colored caramel. Earthy spiciness, then a sliver of lemon peel, then a bite of apple and apricot. Ample bitterness. Sweetish and lightly spicy on the warming finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation. The slight boost in carbonation works to cut through the slight stickiness of the mouthfeel. Overall: A bit up there, boozewise, but not bad overall, and a nice brew to start up and close out the annual Sausage Fest at 5 Seasons.

Clear reddish orange with a fizzy white head. Faint malty aroma and a slightly tangy nutty flavor.

Shag (2623) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2010
This poured an amber color with a caramel and toffee aroma. Some sugar and caramel in the flavor. The aftertaste is bitter and sweet. Overall a nice beer

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
On tap at the brewpub on 6/3/08: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a frothy clingy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramely and grainy German malt with some slightly bready notes and light fruity esters. Body starts fairly full and light caramely and Munich malty sweet with a slightly earthy noble hop balance and a semi-sweet authentic finish. An enjoyable Maibock.

Cybercat (3440) - Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Pours a dark, clear coppery color with a decent fine-bubbled copper-cream head. Rich aroma is spicy - cloves and cinnamon - and malty. Mouth-filling malty flavor has an undertone of cinnamon and cloves, as well as hints of caramel and banana. Texture is pleasingly smooth and tingly, and it leaves a nice spicy aftertaste.
Earlier Rating: 5/28/2007 Total Score: 4.5
Color is a beautiful clear reddish-brown with a thick head. Aroma is hoppy and has a toffee hint. Flavor has noticeable hoppy and malty components, with nutty undertones and a whisper of toffee or caramel. Sweet and bitter tastes balance very nicely and complement each other. Heartily recommended!

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Very malty aroma, that screams bubblegum, and sweet maltiness that follows through into the flavor, rich caramel sweetness, that rides a wave of honey and citrus bitterness in the finish, but does not carry on from there, the finish just drops right off leaving no lingering flavors on the palate. Overall not bad, but not worth writing home about.

alebrewer (140) - Mentor, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Draught @ brewery Very nice malty lager. color is spot on for Einbecker Maibock. Copper not gold like other maibocks. I don’t get the huge malt aroma or flavor of a bock, nor the slight fusel alcohol taste that should be there.

On top at the restaurant. Clear as all hell (very impressive), with a thin head of micro bubbles. Smells of corn, molasses, and cherry bubblegum. Upon the first sip, I remark to myself that maibocks are usually thicker than this in my experience; lots of unfermented sugars it seems just floating around; smooth; dark grains dominate the middle; subdued citrus fruit throughout, like oranges or kiwi; no lacing, and not much carbonation at all. Warming. You get a bit of hops at the end, but nothing to write about.

hazy amber, big frothy white head, drippy lace, sweet malt aroma, big malt flavor, lots of carmel sweetness, just enough bitterness to keep it balanced and from being too sweet
