4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Too sweet at the start for my tastes. Luckily a bit of alcohol and an even tinier hint of hops came to the rescue.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
