COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional German beer is usually served on the first day of May to celebrate the arrival of spring. Our Maibock is a malty but balanced beer that is extremely drinkable and leaves you asking for another round. A spring seasonal specialty in every Big Horn Brewing location.

Draft (at Indy downtown location). Lemon and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet barley malt and moderate astringent flavor. Not bad - decent.

From notes. Draft. Meh, this is probably my least favorite here. Relatively weak flavors of some grassy citrus and a little toasty malt. Drinksble, but nothing to bring home.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Nose of soft sweet brown bread, a litle caramel and fruit, lightly spicy hop presence. Pours golden orange with a thin head that does not last, moderate chill haze. Flavors of moderately sweet brown bread, a little caramel, some fruity sugar notes with a slightly spicy and peppery hop finish. Balanced, not flawed, just not super interesting.

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2013
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is clear yellow with a big white head and great lacing. Floral, spicy hops, somewhat grassy, biscuity, cereal, and straw on the nose. Taste is noble hops, earthy, spicy hops, doughy, grainy, and bready with a spicy hop bite on the finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. OK.

I thought this was a pretty damn tasty beer. Very surprised about the low ratings.

Again, this was a good beer from a chain brewer which was pleasant. Good malty flavor and a good alcohol bite.

highibus (737) - Vail, Arizona, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Pours a light copper with thin white head. Light lacing disapates quickly. Nice aroma of sweet malt. Flavor is clean and sharp. Lightly sweet finish. Decent.

Dogbrick (8669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2010
Sample at the Schaumburg location. The beer is a mostly clear reddish-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt, fruit and mild hops. Medium, clean body with flavors of toasted malt, caramel, and fruit. Touches of hops here too. The finish is sweet malt with a slight medicinal note. Slightly above average overall.
