Cold winters. Hot summers. Between, always the promise of spring. Germans crafted a beer for such days, one that mirrors the sweet fragrant taste of nature reawakening. Foothills Maibock stays faithful to the spirit and essence of this seasonal golden lager, with pleasant malty overtones and a spicy crisp finish.

It’s really quite a good Heller bock. The aroma is bready with sweet malt notes with a faint banana note... Taste is sweet not too lagerish with plenty of toasty malt flavor. The finish is smooth and clean with of lasting maltiness... Nice.

Clear golden pour with a moderate white head. The aroma is very malty and slightly sweet. The taste is sweet malty caramel, with a hint of citrus, and mild hop presence. Balanced and smooth. Good beer.

BadAprilia1000 (379) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with an average white head that holds well enough. Aroma is bready, biscuit, grass, hay, a very faint citrus, sweet lager. Taste is heavier than the aroma, bread, hay, grass, a weak sweet oj like citrus note. Great mouthfeel, very drinkable like the style should be. Very solid session beer that has something to it.

Bottle. Clear, dark gold with a medium head. Aroma is full of grains with hints of sweetness. Taste is well balanced with just a tad too much sweetness.
