Guys, ...if you want to rate Maibock beer, you must know that Beer from the city of Einbeck in germans lower saxony is THE BEER which gave Bock-Beer his name. (Einpöckisch Beer = beer from Einbeck, called so around 1600). This is the straightedge for Maibock and from my opintion the best BockBeer in the world. You can get it in germany between end of Feb-june, around May. I Like it, i like it, i love it

Aroma: Malty and rich! There’s big aromas coming off of this beer. It begins with a dried fig and apricot scent mixed with caramel and biscuits. The lager then flows effortlessly into herbal waves with ginger and other spices woven in. Very delicate and complex nose on this lager!
Appearance: Well, I don’t know what was up with the head on that last beer, but this one does not disappoint. It pours a dark/golden, light/amber hue with a crystal clear sparkle to it. The head began with a rocky/foamy start and has remained lovely, despite my best molestation.
Taste/Palate: A delight! The lager starts with an abundant amount of spritzy carbonation which livens up the palate, then the rich malt accent takes over. The malt is very complex with notes of various fruits and spices throughout. The rich mouth-feel is balanced at the very end with a clean, dry finish and continuing notes of dried fruit.
Overall: Awesome Mai-bock and a delight to drink. I think this is the beer that put Einbecker on the map as far as classic beers in my development in beer culture.

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!!!

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.

a nice classic, in maibaock beers.
It's golden-yellow tones, nice foamy head. In the nose there is a difference between tap and bottle. The bottle is more aromatic, possibly due to the temperature. The taste is malty at fist, fruity and a closing of bitters, which invite you to drink more than one beer. Excellent quality.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Consistent soft CO2. Nose of full spring early summer elements, fresh and quaffable! Dark golden appearance. Light-mdium sweet and some bitterness to it. Excellently balanced! Full body, and a lovely fizzy/velvety, slick texture. Long lasting but not exaggerated finish.
To be honest since it is a seasonal beer it can taste every year differently. I had it before where it was even better and I had one year so far where it was not as good. But until now I can confidently say that this is a thirst quencher as well as a high regarded tastefull beer!

My favorite bock thus far. Rich and dark with medium carbonation. Strong, flavorful and German is key.
