ben4321 (3863) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Location: Draft at the Wrigleyville location, 7/6/14

Aroma: It has a solid malty aroma, somewhat sweet, lots of caramel
Appearance: The pour of this one is amber-orange with a sheet of off-white colored head
Flavor: Flavor-wise, it is similar to the nose, leans sweet, lots of caramel, some mild bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a sticky mouthfeel, and a decently long finish
Overall Impression: This is a solid, malt-forward beer. Overall, it works pretty nicely. It gets a bit sticky, though it doesn’t get to the point of being cloying.

On tap at goose island wrigleyville. Oh this company makes nice beer. Pretzel and spice in the nose. Very dry and superb palate. Crisp. Clear dark orange with nice lacing pattern. A perfect bock.

Tried at Goose Island Wrigelyville on tap. Toasty and warm. Malty but with a strong bitter aftertaste. Medium color, clear. Would go well with a beef stew.

Not what I woudl call a "super" traditional take on the style but this is supremely drinkable, a nice one.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Flight on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a deeper golden amber hue, some orange pink glow with a frothy whitish head atop, decent sized dies to a thicker film and laces ok. Aromas are sweeter, bready malts pair with caramel, some sweet breads, a touch cakey with light florals, toast, touches of warming alcohol spirit. Sticky sweet with some green apple, pie. Initial is medium bodied, hiding the alcohol well with some sticky sweet malts, touches of honey and caramel, with biscuits, cakey bread, mellow sweetness. Sweeter but hidden well with green apple, sweet malts, yet not heavy, touches of honey. Warming ABV on the backend, but lighter, some dryness into the finish. A solid Maibock, but not a beer style I generally love. Ok.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Draft at Clybourn. Pours a very attractive deep gold with a nice white head on top. Nose is heavy on honey and toasty melanoidins. Fresh bread as well. No hop aromatics. On taste, full toast and bread notes with some strong roundness. A sweetness comes across and balanced by a good dose of hops. It’s never cloying at all. Very good Maibock. Finish has a nice hop flavor that ties this one together.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - MAY 17, 2011
On draft at Clybourn goose island brewpub. aroma is light orange, heavy grain. taste is semi sweet, warm going down. Color is orange. This one isn’t the best maibock I have ever have, however I have to give it credit that it is very close to the maibock style. Not very hoppy and very malty in character.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Draft at Clybourn. Poured a clear medium orange color with a thin off white head. Smelled of hay, dark fruit, and a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied and slick with carbonation on the mild side. Tasted of light chocolate, spicy malt, and earthy root.

On tap at Wrigleyville Goose Island. Poured a dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma consisted of notes of malts, wood and some sweetness. Flavor is dominated by malts and a wooden flavor. There was a nice sweet undertone.
