Hmmm, "best by" date December 2002. Brilliant copper; the small paper-white head leaves excellent lacing. Huge, mouthwatering malty aroma is supported by impressions of flower garden, honey, and lemon zest. A sucession of flavors: honey-wheat bread, toffee, lemongrass, and herbal bitterness with a touch of mint. Strangely powerful alchohol taste, like a shot of vodka. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Long bitter grassy/herbal aftertaste, maybe a tad lightstruck?

This has a fruity, malty nose, maybe a little floral. It starts with a prickly, sharp yet thick and substantial flavor with some hints of pears and grapes; maybe a little too bitter, then more lingering bitterness; dryish and rather Heiniken-like in skunkiness and aftertaste, but (much) less detracting. Tastes actually a little stronger than it actually is. I'd like to taste one of these fresh, the superior flavors are certainly obscured by a 6000 mile journey.........

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Golden with a big frothy thick long lasting head with good lacing. Malts and hops sweet and citrusy in the nose. Lots of flowers in the taste, hoppy tngy and tart, Interesting is the best word for it. Ovearll qite an interesting drink.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Chill hazed pale golden yellow in color, thin whitish head not withstanding any staying power, thin collar remains and very minimal whispy strings of lace stick. Aroma has a sweetish bread malt tone thats sort of pale or dull, a bit candyish too in its sweetness. Taste is more of the same with a mild subdued presense of pale sweetness, lightly breadish, a bit of an acute bittering with a slight herbalness to its hops. Pleasingly mild taste. Feel is about medium bodied with a light frothy texture and finish that ends a bit dry. A reserved in pale sweetness overall with this Mai-bock makes it a bit bland but its actully quite tasty and becomes better as it warms where some of the breadish tones float in more.

Very malty and German tasting. Textbook example of a German beer. Didn't notice the alcohol as much as others did.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Sparkling clear golden lager with a large, frothy, white head. Decent retention. Good lacework. The aroma is well-skunked, but is rich in malt with notes of honey, toffee and alcohol... too bad it's lightstruck. Flavors of honey, grapefruit and alcohol. Tons of bitterness. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish with lots of warming alcohol. Good beer, but the alcohol is a little too evident for a 6.5% ABV lager.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 18, 2004
clear orange color with a cereal-like aroma..slight hoppiness upon background maltiness..could be an old sample since the dates on the label only went to 2001...a thick n full beer though regardless.

Very dissapointing. Amber coloured. Rather malty and sweet. Alcoholic finish.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2003
When poured, this beer had a small sized ivory head that was both creamy and smooth with fine-small sized bubbles that lasted for quite some time. The nose was made up of malts and some hops while the flavor was sweet and bitter with a fore and aftertaste. The palate was smooth yet bitter. There was good lacing with this beer.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Hugh foamy cream colored head. dark straw body, agressive carbonation. Nose of dmso, pale dry malts and earthy hop tones. well balanced. somewhat spicy, warm, a sweet/dry malty finish. some light damage noticeable. drier and more alcoholic as it went, along with aq building hop character.
