3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This orangey beer with golden glints has rich, thick head. The nose has a light caramely maltiness and a very light nuance of hops. The palate is medium-bodied, sweet and malty with a slightly astringent (hoppy) finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden body, small head, malt-accented nose. Sort of a strong version of a helles. Not my thing.

Beautiful color, but kind of a funky aroma. Decent on the palate, but no real flavor to it. All I get is after-taste. Overall though, not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little better than the Ur-Bock. Pretty much the exact same but alittle sweeter and a little better aftertaste.

Nice sweetness, strong alcohol flavor, a great drinkable Maibock. One of my favorite beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel abounds, sweetish as a bock should be, some alcohol presence noted, as I always can tell with bocks. As the style goes with me (not always great, but I love to cook with Bocks) this was a very very good one. I didn’t get alot of hop flavor or aroma, which I’m figuring is tru to style. Towards the end of the package from the great trader in Maryland.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer poured a copper color and formed a nice huge bubbly white head. that left some interesting lace when it subsided. The aroma was of malt and some grain present. Slight chemical aroma as well, maybe due to the green bottle.
The flavor was of malt and a bit of sweetness to it with the grain aspects adding to the sweetness in the finish. I had this one a bit warmer, and think it would benefit from being colder, which may mask the alcohol better.

Oh, how wonderful this bock is! I sharp, mouthwatering bitterness in the first sip that melts into a smooth mellow malt flavor. thankfully this beer JUST came in and was not skunked (being in a green bottle and all). A very medium bodied bock, but very flavourful.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden bronze hue. Clean white rocky head. Aroma of slight skunk, light malt. Light sweetness, light to medium bodied, bitter skunky finish. Not much going on. Butter, light malt, not a terrible bock. I think the bottle ruined the hell out of this beer. Not anything special, Im sorry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin head, with a bitter taste. Strong, tastes of alcohol, and
has a light body. Almost pilsener flavored. One of my best friends
swears by this beer. I like the (plain) ur-bock better. It has a little
bolder body. It has a cool bottle. Very strog hop aroma and taste.
Slight coppery aftertaste.
