Pretty good beer, matches the labels' description, tho not so special as to merit this treatment. Nice color, aroma, taste, body, finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flip top bottle pours a clear amber with a thick white head and nice lacing. Aromas of biscuits, herbs, sweet, cereal and hints of caramel. Flavor is malt with slight sweetness. Nice beer.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2014
Flippy top bottle: Pours a clean deep golden hue with a huge frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has a lovely biscuity and pils malt tone along with herbal grassy hop esters, some light honey malts, faint apple and alcohol notes too. The taste is malty goodness without too much sweetness, the hops bitterness is classic for the genre adding a counterbalance to the malt. Subdued apple like fruitiness midsection. Just a touch of herbal spiciness upon the finish. The mouth feel is moderate in heft, mostly refreshing outside a bit of chalky character upon the finish. A solid brew that hits on most requirements.

Pours a bright and clear light golden with a foamy white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma of a honeyed biscuit with some sweet and bready scents. Taste has the same slight honey sweetness and breadiness with a light herbal and floral bitterness along with a hint of alcohol noticeable. Finishes with the taste of Pilsner malt and light bitterness. Mouthfeel is somewhat slick with a light body and moderate carbonation. Enjoyable and drinkable. Plenty of flavor for a lager.

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2014
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 8/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of honey, cracker, bread, light caramel, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of honey, cracker, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness. Light amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, cracker, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Maibock style. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

500ml bottle shared. Poured a deep golden yellow color with white frothy head. Aroma malt aplenty yet mild in nature. The flavor is very good for style. Nicely carbonated, nice malty backbone with the hops coming out on the end. Very drinkable.

500ml. Most of the time I spent in Europe was in the springs months, so I feel like I have a good grasp on Maibock, Lentebock, Heller Bock ect. This one pours a filtered copper tan. Classic, with carbonation bubbles risings in the hyper-transparent body. Foamy, frothy white head...fades away after a while but leaves some bubbly remnants. A pretty respectable Bock, sort of middle of the road, not really leaning too much into the deep sugary or pungent lager tone side of the equation. The aroma is sort of macro, factory, but not off or bad. Noble hop zestiness up front quickly leads to a sweet finish. Somewhat underwhelming and pedestrian, but still better than most American examples.

JK (4433) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2014
On tap labeled as maibock. Low carbonation. Dark gold and clear appearance. Light aroma of caramel and grain. Sweeter than many of this style with good hops in the finish.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2014
500ml swingtop - clear gold - nose of honeyed maltiness, fruity and floral hallertauer, light mineral - creamy texture - clean and crisp, with a nice balance of sweet, lean maltiness, light esters, fruity and grassy hops - nothing knock your socks off, just clean, simple, and balanced - not the best in the style, but solid.
