Hazy brown with off-white foam head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is little bitter with too much sweetness.

Old review from summer of 2006. Light brown with some fizzy bubbles. The aroma is sweet and really malty with some fruit like plums or something. The flavour is sweet and malty as well, caramel and maybe toffee. Iím not a fan of this brew - seems thin yet thick. Glad Itís gone.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2006
Clear brown with a ruby hue, and a thin dissipating off white head. Nice nutty malt aroma, a bit woody. In mouth, sweet nutty malt, with some smokey notes, but rather thin and short in mouth. Maibock for the mass. Merci, JM.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
Clear dark copper colour with thin beige head. Mild malt nose with hints of smoke. Smokey malt taste with mild warming alcohol finish.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2005
Pours a dark copper colour with not much of a head. Light malt aroma as well as some caramel. The taste was somewhat malty, kinda thin mouthfeel. Average.

MatKool (64) - CANADA - SEP 9, 2005
A surprislngly dark brew but lacking in flavor. Some caramel/molasses traces but they were overshadowed by carbonation and a strong aftertaste that was present. A nice change from stout and cream ales but overall tastes like a lager with color added. Still love Big Rock despite this one. (I believe its a seasonal beer anyway!)

Zoob (85) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Not a Mai bock! It would work better as a traditional bock due to color and slight roast and carmel over-tones This said it is a pretty tasty beer and offers a nice escape from the western Canadaian blandness in most offerings

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
Medium red-tinged brown colour. Aroma is fruity (plums), tobaccoey and molassesy. Body is moderate (so, light for style), malty (hints of caramel and earth). Fruity overtones are distracting. But I donít think itís esters, just the way the malt comes across, possibly a function of what appears to be light oxidation.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
Malty and a little sweet. No discernable hops. Slight rumminess and as it warms the malt profile becomes more interesting.

Trev (1896) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Hazy brown (maple syrup) colour with a tight white head thatís gone in a flash. Pretty high carbonation I thought. Aroma is of alcohol with resiny wood tones. Flavour is thin and subdued. Slight olive tones in flavour with a mild alcohol finish.
