From the tap in Wichita, KS, this beer was reddish amber in color, sparklingly clear and had a small off-white head that lasted well and left good lacing. There was almost no detectable aroma but persistence finally uncovered a very slight earthy malt aroma. The texture was watery and body very light. The carbonation was also light. It started off with an earthy, slightly sweet malt flavor that faded quickly. the finish was short and somewhat watery.

Dark red with rich sugary taste and maybe toffee. A slight hop hint. Still a thinner beer than expected.

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2005
At the Lincoln NE restaurant ... Reddish hue. Cooked brown sugar with a vague caramel tone. Odd tart finish. Very thin body. Unfortunately, this was the best they had to offer. At least the food was good.

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Draught, GABF 2003. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of smoke and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Wasn’t impressed.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2005
Sampled at the Cedar Rapids location. They called this a Mai Bock. Seemed appropriate for that style. Body is a dark amber with no head. The nose is malty with cherries. The taste is peanuts and apples. A nice change of pace for a Mai bock. It is just dry enough to make it very drinkable.

JMerritt (1764) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2005
On tap at Davenport, IA location. Dark red-brown, hazy, with a small bright-white head. Light caramel malt aroma. Maltiness in flavor is lightly sweet with a certain berry sugary sweetness noticeable in the middle. Wheaty, hay and straw finish is mildly sour.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Deep mahogany. Light chocolate and cocoa, sweet and sugary, very slightly bitter. Decent.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2004
A mai bock in December--what a curious situation. Characterless--just a bit of malty nuttiness. Brewpub carbonation. Dark chestnut red, with a ring of head. (on tap at Maple Grove, MN location)

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Tap @ brewpub in Maple Grove, MN. Brown color with a malty flavor. Rather light with some nuts. The best I could offer was that it was smooth and easy to drink.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2004
on tap, at the Davenport, Iowa location. Good chocolatey brown in color with a very thin head and not much lacing. aroma was of coffee and chocolate. I would drink this again, but the rating would be higher if not for the fact it seemed a bit thin and watery on the finish.
