UPDATED: JUL 25, 2003 Bottled. Another fine Wisconsin German beer. Dark malts just right, sweet & lip-smacking. Nice to just stick your nose in and inhale (bocks and amber lagers can be some of the most 'beery' smelling beers I've found). A fine, though not exceptional, example of the style. You'd be well advised to buy this when in season, or in one of Capital's "brewery tour" 8-packs.
These guys have shown they can do very good beers that stick to style, and their uniform label design suggests they want to get placed in the store with the mega beers. Hope they decide to go wild and do something special!

Bottle: Clear, bubbly, light amber with a short off-white head. Caramel, lemon scent. Caramel malt, and a light earthy bitter taste. Pretty good.

shrubber85 (10536) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle. Lemon, toffee malt, dry lemon peel and hay aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Mildly sweet lemon, toffee malt, and mildly bitter astringent hay flavor. Good body. Not bad.

Finhead (1601) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2016
A clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma is malty with notes of pretzel and biscuit along with some faint hops. It has a medium body with somewhat chewy texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet all the way through.

drdisque (751) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2016
From a can poured into a shaker at a restaurant. Really rich slightly creamy maibock. Bright but complex malt bill with definite maltose notes. One of the best of the style I have had.

BeerandBlues2 (12051) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 17, 2016
Can at home. Pours brilliantly clear copper with a medium, creamy beige head, medium-short retention with light lacing. Aroma is moderate toasted malt melanoidins with light earthy hops and bitterness. Flavor is sweet toasted malt, moderate melanoidins, light earthy hops and bitterness, clean with a sweet finish. Medium-full body and medium carbonation.

Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Malt, honey and apple juice on the nose... an especially refreshing mix of malt and earthy apple flavors.

Very Flavorful, slight bitterness at end. Floral. I am new to many beers, but theis may be a new favorite. Color is a pale gold. Beer is ever so slightly heavy, but it adds to the rich flavor of the beer
