On draft. Pours a clear pale golden with a small white head that stays and laces. Bread dough aroma with mild spice. Taste is smooth and fluffy with sweet pale malt, more bread dough and a slight hop bitterness. Good for the style.

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
On tap sat outside Gasthof Fraundorfer, Garmisch-Parrenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany 28th May 2012 I understood that this was Paulener Maibock, it was certainly a Maibock in a Paulaner, so this looks the nearest most likely match. Pours copper wuth medium large white frothy head, stunningly clear. Some grain on nose and a slightly sweetish waft. Quite thick in the mouth the alcohol is noticeable, but there is a steady bitterness also apparent in this beer. Enjoyable but you can tell that is fiercesome stuff. Btw great pub that I had this at, very, very Bavarian in feel with even young lads dressed in full regalia. A6 A5 T8 P4 Ov14 3.7

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Light bready sweet aroma with grain and light flowery notes. The flavor is grainy, with light mineral-like notes and some bready sweetness. Not bad.

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2012
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., dispensed to a dimpled mug with a clear, bright golden hue, average retention to the soft white, frothy head, and waves & spots of lacing. The nose presented a typical lager scent, with light grain, Pils malt, and light noble hints. The flavor added low bitterness, just a hint of honey-like sweetness, lively carbonation, medium body, subtle warmth, and a pleasant dryness that promoted a clean, crisp nature. Nothing flashy, but very quaffable.

justabeergeek (225) - Albany, New York, USA - APR 13, 2012
On tap. Poured golden to light amber. Smelled malty, but only faintly so. Some bready, malty flavors with a touch of grain and caramel. Not what I expect in a bock at all. Disappointing.

MadRobin (1900) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Tap labeled as Hacker-Pschorr Mai Bock On tap at Westover Beer Haus in Arlington, VA. Clear pale amber straw with good lacing. Aroma: subtle Aroma of grainy malt and crackers. Some sweetness. Hops not noticeable. Taste: Interesting malt profile of grain, caramel and toasted bread. Noticable bitterness at the finish. Slightly metallic finish that disappeared as the beer warmed. Body is moderately light, with a moderate amount of carbonation. Fine example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ The Mayor of Old Town Foco. Clear golden appearance with a pearl white head. Sweet, toasted malty, a bit floral, grassy aroma. Toasted, caramel, grassy, hay flavor. Easy drinking.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a nice head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet malty alcohol. Tastes along the same line balanced with the hops. Full bodied, slightly alcoholic finish. Take it or leave it.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2012
This poured a darker orange color almost amber with an off white head. Aroma was of dusty and grassy hops, some bready notes and caramel. Flavor was a bit sweeter than expecting, not hops at all, but nothing offensive either.

pootzboy (1587) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2012 On tap: Poured a hazed, burnished gold lager in the glass. large puffy cap laced well. Softl carbonation. Aroma of sweet Munich pale malt, noble woodyness, some mustyness and hints of spicel. Tastes like it smells - like a rich Munich helles but a bit sweeter and boozier with more hallertau presense. Verry rounded and drinkable. Not a bad commercial Maibock but local craafters have made better.
