4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favorites, which I always keep on hand. The malt is big, with a brilliant cascading effect as it unfolds, underpinned by alcohol and (surprisingly) hops. A nearly perfect beer, in my humble opinion.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice light mocha head stays atop a deep copper body. Aroma is strong caramel with alcohol. Flavor is moderate caramel, with alcohol quite prominent. A decidedly unimpressive beer.

A srong lager in my mind, but didn’t have the malt character of a bock.Quite bitter for a bock.

Really disappointed, i got a skunky bottle. It was a pretty caramel color, with an off white head that really held up. Tasted a bit skunked as well, with a bitter tang on the end. Couldnt finish it. Have to try again another time.

This beer is great. MaiBock may be the best style of beer in the world. A easy drinking beer with great body. The Germans know how to make a beer. This beer will catch up on you. This beer is Zur Gutte!!!

loses it at the end but blows me away at the start. A more carbonated, less full bodied Dead Guy.

great munich malt flavors the right amount of hops drink a six and you will find out why they call them green monsters. this is a beer that does not travel well so look for the newer dates on the bottle

A tiny amount of skunk, with some background hop bitterness and caramel-like malt. Not bad, but I’d really like to try one that wasn’t skunked at all.
