COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Maibock is a tradition from Bavaria brewed to celebrate the arrival of the spring season. Our Maibock is fermented with traditional Bavarian lager yeast prior to cold conditioning for eight long weeks. Two-Row Barley, Munich, and Carmel Malt build the base that facilitates the malty aromatic profile and deep bronze color. German Magnum, Hallertau, and Tettnanger hops make up the balance to form its depth and Character." -- Charleville

It poured a dark orangish/reddish color with a small white head. The aroma was of some maltiness, hay and a hint of burlap. The taste was of malt breadiness with a touch of hops and a hint of a grassy note, with a good dry finish. A very good Maibock Lager.

ben4321 (4023) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 4/17/12

Aroma: The nose has some yeast, bready malts, a little spice, and some grass
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange with a lasting, thin sheet of white head
Flavor: Tastes lightly sweet, fairly malty and yeasty, with a light earth/spice/grass bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, with a soft carbonation, a fairly clean feel, and a slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Overall, this one is pretty solid. I enjoyed it, I thought it drank pretty well, and it seemed to be a nice example of the style. It isnít an outstanding beer, but I think "pretty solid" really sums it up.

Courtesy of Strykzone via a trade. I liked this better than he did. Pours as slightly cloudy light amber with a small,off-white head and no lacing. Nose is of mild hops on a sweet caramel malt base. Medium in body and smooth in mouthfeel. Flavor is caramel malt with just a little hops. Actually quite good tasting. Nice Heller Bock..

bhensonb (11252) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours lightly hazy light amber with a small, foamy off-white head. Aroma is pretty bready, and the noble hop aspect seems rather mild. Med + body. Wow - this is pretty spicy (along with bready). Stacks up well to Victoryís St. Boisterous. This beer is very tasty, and I recommend you get some. Finishes bready/malty with herby/grass/spicy noble hop. Is it sweet? Is it bitter? Is it a bit of both? Good stuff. That from a guy who usually isnít all that fond of bottem fermented beer.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Draft sample at St. Louis Microfest 2011. This is a Charleville brew that has escaped me thus far, so I was happy to try it. Pours a clear amber color that is pretty bright around the edges and has a small off-white head that doesnít last long. Notes of caramel malts, sweet toast, nuts, mild spices, dry grains, crackers, and dusty wood. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, toasty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2011
Tasted 4/30/11. 22oz bomber. Bottled recently. Pours hazy, lively and sedimented with a bronze honey golden hue. Itís a good lookiní brew! Trace ring of head of an off-white hue. Aromas of graham crackers and caramel malts. Medium roasted toasty malts and a faint grassy hop character. Medium bodied with a rather spicy and dry palate. Good medium roasted malt flavors with notes of toast and cereal grains. A bright and bitter effervescence that tingles the tongue and adds a dimension to the palate. Initially sweet malts, then the bitter astringent carbonation, followed by a tangy and mildly hoppy finish. This beer lingers slightly on the tongue. Totally dry from the middle to the finish. This is spot on, style wise and really offers quite a rounded palate. Well crafted and very fresh!

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours copper / bronze with a quickly disappearing off-white head. The aroma has light bread, caramel malt, some toast, light toffee, smooth slickness and some sweetness. Medium / thick body with mild carbonation. The flavor begins with smooth lager malt, light spice and some richness - overall cleanness as well. The finish is a bit grainy and lightly bready.

sethdude (701) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Pours orange/red with a tiny white head. Aroma is sweet, toffee, grainy malts, slight hay, and burlap. Flavor is well balanced initial malt breadiness quickly warmed by balanced hop pepper, followed by a grassy note, and a long, dry finish. Nicely done. No sign of the off flavor identified by Strykzone.

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2009
A copper gold pour with a very small head of little duration. It is mostly clear but some cloudiness can be seen drifting as a haze. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma is grainy and malty as is the flavor. There is a hint of fruit and some spice and chemical can be tasted late. I wish I could rate this one higher but just canít.
