A bock beer with a beautiful, deep golden hue. Very smooth, this beer has great depth of character, and is an excellent beer to celebrate the end of winter and beginning of spring. Available February through April.

Kind of dissappointing, being that I was expecting something a little stronger. Probably won't get this again

Very nice Maibock ,golden in color.sweet malty aroma.Light in flavor it's sweet with a small hop presence,but it is well balanced between the two.It leaves a slight hoppy after taste with a smooth finish .very drinkable brew.I wish i should have got more with this trade for a later date.

The color was a hazy deep orange with a nice frothy white head. The aroma was sweet...slight alcohol...brown sugar. the flavor was sweet as well with a noticeable alcohol kick. Nice creamy feel, yet crisp in the finish.

Excellent Maibock, as noted by everybody else, a little sweet, but not enough to detrack much from its flavor.

A great Maibock that is complex with a lot of original character. It is a bit sweet, but the hops compliment the body and maltiness very well. There is little head, presumably due to the higher alcohol. It starts off sweet with a nice mouthfeel. From there is moves into rasins and apples finally to finish with a nice noble hop taste. Well done and it ages woderfully (one year no more).

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2003 Fruity malt in the nose--very inviting. Great sweet pale malt flavors adhering perfectly to the style. Maybe a bit sweet for some, and not terribly complex, I still happen to like this quite a bit.

A fruity and malty aroma. It is exactly what a Maibock should be. Malty with a nice long finish. This beer goes great with a wurst and sauerkraut meal!

Golden copper color with a full head. Sweet malty aroma leading into a flavor lightly balanced with soft carbonation. The finish is mellow with a noble hoppiness. Not very complex but still enjoyable.

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.
