This is one of the best Maibocks I’ve had. Sweet aromas and flavors of citrus, bread, sugar and caramel. Pours a beautiful light copper color with a frothy off white head. Delicious beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle, bottled 1/21/14; about seven months old. Aroma is biscuity malt, stone fruit, creamed corn, floral notes. Pours slightly hazy copper with a medium off-white head that falls after a couple minutes. Taste is sweet and malty, savory; faint bitterness in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel, medium-full body. Well made, but a little too sweet for me.

Bottle, clear light orange amber, with a small fleeting sandy head. Lots of light toasted malt aroma, quite strong and sharp for a MaiBock. Prety big and almost boozy for the style. Still good, and a nice sipper. Glad to see this in bottles at a few locations this late in the year for a spring seasonal

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Crankenstein. Apperance: finger white head, orange color, slightly cloudy, ok head. Aroma: sweet fruit, honey, light lemon, molasses. Palate: medium body, light light bitter finish, average carbonation, slightly dry. Taste: sweet molasses to a slightly hoppy bitter finish; sweetness is slightly cloying. Seems like a beer that would do well with a bit of aging.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml botlle: Pours a deep golden near amber hue with even a touch of ruby highlights near the edges, fading frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, biscuit, bread, herbal and grassy hops, a hint of pear and crabapple esters. A faint hint of white pepper and cornmeal as well. The taste is somewhat sweet but not overly so, light spicy bitterness and subdued fruit. Yep there is a slight veggie note as well but not anything to ruin the experience. The mouth feel is solid, a filling but overly heavy body, slight minerally finish. This is more like the common bock than the Hacker-Pschorr Hubertus Bock I had before it. I liked that one a bit more but this is more than drinkable, actually one of the better Grand Teton beers I have had in many years. Too bad it was bottled in January, I would have liked to seen this bottled less than 30 days ago.
