2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a medium golden. Thin white head dissipates quickly. Smell is mostly of an odd vinegar or slightly wine like character. Taste, to me, was not as sweet as others said. The taste is sweet and malty, but it is cut with a hint of vegetable and a sour note from the vinegar aroma. Most present is a doughy/bready finish that is reminiscent of a plain ol macro lager.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 3 4/2015. Pours crystal clear deep golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Maibock style. All around good balance and robustness of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Decent market-adapted brew that leaves little to remember but does its job quite well.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pale Bock? Dundee, are you even trying to sound impressive? The name of this brew made me think of a bad lager. And thatís exactly what this brew looked, smelled, and tasted like. No head, watery body, and malt profile that lacks complexity and, well, flavor. I honestly canít think of anything complimentary to say about this brew.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A- Malty, biscuits, slightly sweet.
A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, no head.
T- Malty, caramel, biscuits, bready, cereal.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.
O- Iím not sure what Dundee does but Iím pretty sure they bottle one beer under several different labels. The IPA, Kolsch, and this all look the exact same and donít differ much in taste either. Just a very boring and not so good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has a nice golden amber color with good clarity. The head is white in color, big, and fluffy. It quickly fades to just a thin covering of bubbles. As I drink a small amount of lace is left behind on the glass. It has a simple clean aroma of sweet bready malts. There is a light caramel sweetness to the malt with a thin earthy hop flavor throughout. It finishes cleanly with some mild hop bitterness. The body is light to medium with just enough carbonation for balance. Over all I would say that it is an average beer that is easy to drink with a simple clean flavor.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Picked out from the Seasonal Variety Pack. To undersized snifter, it pours a bright urine yellow with which a snowy white head 2 fingers in length stood. Foamy. Tastes and smells of tortilla chips, corn, mildew, ale yeast and breakfast tea. Meh, whatevs...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was always poured into a pilsener whenever I had it.
The appearance was a golden amber color that showed a decent transparency about it and allowing some carbonation to be seen rising. The head was about a fingerís thick and was white. Once that died, there was some light foamy lacing.
The smell was a malty sweet caramel breadiness.
The taste was sweet allowing the caramel breadiness to give off a slight toasty sort of effect.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on the body allowing a decent sessionability running about it. The carbonation seemed fairly smooth.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good beer, but my lack of reviews for Maibocks says this was good for me.
