hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2010
Bottle… Clear ruby lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, lightly-tanned head. Good, small, creamy retention. The nose is of toasted malts, caramel and praline with just a splash of port. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The flavor is bursting-at-the-seams with malty heartiness and goodness – caramel, buttery toffee and praline. Balanced nicely by measured hop bitterness - not so much as to detract from the beer’s lavish maltiness. The finish is a continuation of the rich, malty flavor that transforms and fades into a nice light bitterness that gently coats the tongue and hangs out for a while.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2010
The aroma is right for the style with slightly toasted caramel malt and hops but it’s not a great smell. The appearance is deep amber with a nice head. The taste is like the aroma but has both paper and astringent hops. The palate is fizzy. Overall I am not impressed.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2010
Deep rum raisin nose with hints of chocolate. Deep reddish brown color, medium thick head with nice lacing. Rich malty cola sweetness with a perfect clean bitter balance. Solid carbonation, medium body, rich mouth feel, spicy clean malty finish. This is a fantastic beer, maltiness is deep and rich, but not cloying, spiciness and balance make this one not to miss!

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2010
Pours a beautiful rich deep amber color with a dark tan head. Aroma is caramel, malty, toffee, some chocolate, prune, toast, and some earthyness. Flavor is caramel, toast, some grain, prune, a little toffee, and a light spicy finish.

mrmekon (100) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Crystal clear, dark ruby with a stable off-white head. Very mild aroma, slightly malty. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Slightly sweet, caramel malt flavor with spicy notes and a slight warmth on the finish from the alcohol. A little hop bitterness balances this one really well.

drpimento (2153) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Great beer although darker than any maibock I’ve ever had and against the common standard to my understanding. Poured with a medium off white head and some lace. Color is mahoganey. Aroma is malty and caramel. Flavor is like aroma but big on the caramel and a bit of bittlerness in middle and end. Very good body and carbonation. Super easy drinking. Great finish. Session beer.

Single 22oz bottle. Nice clear, dark color with very good flavor. One of the better Maibocks, would definitely buy again.

daknole (8862) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Brown pour. Caramel, honey, nuts, light fruit and woody aroma. Flavor is sweet and has a lot of caramel with some woodiness and light hops. Not bad, thanks to Craig for sharing!
