On tap in Dallas. Grassy, bocky, dry and woody. Brassy beer with thin, fizzy head. Slightly smokey aroma. A decent session beer at this particular restaurant.

Kind of light for a bock, not too sweet, smooth. Some flavor, not that great though. A beer you could drink a lot of if it weren't being sold at brewpub price.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2004 Westminster, CO: Light golden and clear. Thin head, but with a nice and sticky lace. Thickish and carbed up front, but became syrupy and watery. Cooked corn malts, grits. Sugar water sweetness with a touch of honey. Cooked vegetable undertones. Finished wet and very mild. Cheyenne, WY "Mai-Bock": Clear and golden with a thin head and soapy lace. Very similar to the Westminster one, probably the same recipe. Beery, corny, and sweet (some DMS). Hops were nice in the middle, but finished less-than-stellar, with notes of flowers. A little cloying in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Dallas location. Ooh...not bad. Nice sweet-spicy aroma and flavor. Ginger-cinnamonlike. Hints of tart citric elements as well - somewhere between orange, lemon, and grapefruit.

Body is medium yellow.
lightly malty (cookie, grain),
moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers).
moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Bitterness never really develops, leaving this too sweet to drink much of. Nice mouthfeel though.

This beer really exceeded my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. Strongly malty without being syrupy, with a decent hop backbone.

This is the first time I have had this style of beer, unforunately it is at a brewpub so I dont have anything worth a damn to compare it to. This beer wasnt too bad, if anything it was too sweet. Very little hoppiness to it as well, went down smooth.
