On tap at BJís Palmdale CA, Sampled July 2007
Pours with a wispy, off-white colored head that forms just a bit more than a ring around the sides of my glass. The beer is a brilliantly clear, amber-hued, copper color. Malty aromatic notes of brown sugar, caramelized grain, and even some malt driven almost-raisin-like fruit notes. Definitely has a malt driven nose.

Sweet tasting up front, but not cloyingly so; complexly, rich malt sugars that have been lightly caramelized and browned make up this flavor. The malt notes almost take on a rum-like note at times that is perhaps molasses like even (though this is really light). Rich tasting, with a definite fullness to it, though this is not so thick and rich as to keep it from being reasonably drinkable; I would not quite call it quaffable, which is certainly appropriate for a Maibock. This definitely has a really nice, concentrated malt character to it, this really makes it a nice example of the style. There is even some hop character here; a crisp, noticeable, yet not overwhelming bitterness lingers on in the finish (just enough to make you want another sip of this malt focused brew) and there is also a light, herbal, perhaps even vaguely pine-like, hop flavor here as well. The malt sweetness almost makes me think of a rich, concentrated fruit; perhaps something like raisins, but not really.

This is a nice example of a Maibock, clearly malt focused, but it still has a nice level of hop character here (which may be a touch more than is traditional, but this is American after all).

Draft at the Le Mesa BJís. Dark with a decent head that lasted a decent amount of time. Very sweet aroma. Sugar and malt. Flavors were still sweet with much bread and just a touch of bitter toward the end. Pretty good Maibock.
