Malty, sweet aroma, some toast with honey and a pear and dried apricot fruitiness. Lightly hazy medium golden color, plenty of effervescence and a lasting head. More honey and toast in the flavor profile; pleasant grain and fruity notes amidst the sweetness. Some faint herbal, spicy hop flavors intermingle towards the finish, but the hops contribute little bitterness. Body is medium-full and palate is easy-going, decent overall drinkability.

Now this is what I'm bocking talking about. A great blend of the malts and hops that delivers deeply smooth drinking experience. Capital has always been a fav.

Stellar. Nice maltiness, not a ton of hops. Extremely smooth-goes down almost too easy.

a little thin on the hops, and kind of on the sweet side for me, but I really like the taste

Too sweet at the start for my tastes. Luckily a bit of alcohol and an even tinier hint of hops came to the rescue.

jaymobrown (1741) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2002
Light golden color. Tastes like a feed-bag. Heavy on the oat taste. Smooth, but there are not a lot of hops, almost none. A good maibock.

Terminus (3351) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 31, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2006 rerate-tap at brewery and at village green just down the street with McKnizzle69. Light orange with a soapy white smooth head and good lacing. aroma of german noble hops, munich malts, bold and somewhat husky/fruity. flavors are bold for the style-spicy hops, zesty yeast character. body is full and slightly surupy. bold, spicy finish with notes of white grapes. very nice maibock!

Copper penny color. Head was thin. Crisp malt profile. Very refreshing. Nice effervesence.

a great beer. Maibock is my least favorite of the bocks but this one really surprised me with it’s huge flavor and aroma. Looking forward to more of these tonight.

Great-looking, lasting head, nice dark gold color. Sweet malt and a little alcohol in the nose, much the same in the flavors. Nice hop spiciness to balance. Sweet, oily mouthfeel makes this a very enjoyable bock.
