This malty lager is deep golden in color and medium in body. The finish holds a bold sweetness that is balanced by a subtle hop flavor and aroma.

This is one of my favorite Maibocks. Really enjoy the slight alcohol warmth and sweetness from the malts.

ryanscourt (555) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Copper, sweet malty aroma. Soft, creamy with good German hop character with very notable caramel sweetness. A little light, even for a lager lacking some of the body and flavor I would hope. Overall pretty enjoyable.

Drake (7947) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bomber from State Line. Pours a clear amber color with a thin head that quickly fades. Big caramel aroma with stone fruits, faint tannins and a bit of toastiness. The taste is caramel, grain, toasted malts and mild hops. Medium bodied and pretty drinkable. Decent beer.

22 ounce bottle. Bright deep gold color topped by a small rocky white head. Fresh toasted malt nose hints at caramel and nuts. some grassy hops, too. Bittersweet spicy malt tastes of black pepper and cardamom. Nice subtle herbal hops creep up in finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Good overall flavor.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Sample on draft this beer poured a dark caramel color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish table sugar and light golden fruits. The flavor was table sugar, golden raisins, pear, apple, bread and a light boozy presence that worked well. The finish was long and tangy with lingering table sugar and golden raisins. Fairly full bodied. Solid.

obxdude10 (1971) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Not a bad maibock, but not one of the best I’ve tasted. The color is a dark golden hue, but the beer doesn’t carry much of a head. The nose is mostly of a caramel and bready malt. The body is smooth and very drinkable. I got some bready and malty flavors, along with some slight hoppiness in the finish.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Amber color with a small, off white head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, caramel, toast, and alcohol. Taste was sweet, honey and caramel, with toasted dough, some citrus, and strong alcohol.

alobar (2620) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Bronze yellow color with an aroma of caramel, spice and hops. Sweet flavor with caramel mostly and some citrus and hops. Very good beer.

PapaSkeetSkeet (799) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Gold, nice carbonation, white head but fast to dissipate. medium bodied- slightly syrupy but not overbearing. Sweetness is clean and nectar-like up front followed by a mild, spicy bitterness in the finish. At first it tastes like an excellent Maibock, but after a whole pint it does seem a bit fatiguing.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2010
on tap in gettysburg 6/17/10. bright bronze with a slight haze and a white ring for a head. nutty aroma with lesser notes of malt, orange, floral yeast and some nail polish-y alcohol. the flavor is the same without the booze note. there is also an added woody component mid palate. luckily the sweetness is not overdone. 5/4/6/3/13/3.1
