3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ the brewpub, comes with a strong small head that never fades atop a dark copper/brown color. Aroma is strong on the maltiness and light sweetness represented with dank malts. and even some dank hops as well. Flavor has a nice sweetness with a but of a woodsy maltiness and clearer hops (indistinct). I like the sweetness but seems unnatural for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Piney gold-amber, whitish oatmeal head. Slightly candied fruit and cereal aroma, which was a bit muted. Grassy, low bittering, low carbonation. A bit doughy, not sweet. Goes a little boozy on the backend with a toasted alcohol finish. Silky mouthfeel, medium body.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A near average heller bock. Aroma was weak. Could pick up some stale hops and caramel malt. Pour was a nice medium amber with a one finger off whie head. Taste was a little thin. Mostly caramel malt and a thin hoppy backbone. Light carbonation but flavor was strong enough to look past that.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Works. Smell is a little beery typical, but not bready yeasty...just plain beery if that makes any sense. Color is a little lighter than reddish orange but certainly darker than a pale yellow american lager. Very little carbonation. A little bitterness like most hellers. The flavor is not out of place for a maibock. Has a slight bitterness on the back of the throat. Finish is non-offensive and happy. Good overall maibock, would not hesitate to purchase again. Better than Erie Fleece Maibock. Not as good as Victory St. Boisterous Hellerbock.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the church. Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt, fairly light, with some light fruits and hint of alcohol. Flavor is similar notes but a little more robust, finishing with some light European-style hops. A pretty good maibock, though not as robust as some.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured dark yellow with huge frothy white head. Nice carbonation. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma was sweet and fruity with a hint of alcohol. Taste was fruity almost like pears or plums or pineapple, but as it warmed it only got better and more complex, malty, roasty, nutty taste with hints of spices. Mild bitter aftertaste. Very smooth and creamy, easy to drink. I enjoyed and will def. have this one again

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a bright golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet and almost honey like. The flavor is sweet and honeyish with a roasty bitterness that follows. There is a mild alcohol flavor that intrudes.
