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.

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 (4671) - 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.

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.

Aroma: Floral hops Appearance: Clear gold with decent white head. Taste: Light sourness backed with heavy sweetness and slightly bitter finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, decent finish. Overall: Very solid beer, but not a standout.

Koelschtrinker (11037) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
Getestet habe ich den Bock direkt nach dem Hellers Eurobock, wobei auffällt das dieser hier deutlich weniger süß ist. Die anfängliche alkoholische Süße ist angenehm und geht lückenlos in einen würzigen Ton über, der aber später wieder zu, Süßen zurückkehrt. Bodenständiger und süffiger Bock, erscheint "massengeeignet". Test vom 1.5.2007, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 9,11,12,12,-,12 - 11,52

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2011
On tap at the Kick Off. Deepish gold pour with a large white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is bland, pils malt, hay, booze. Flavour is quite sweet, lots of plain sweetness, not malty, followed by a dry finish and boozy aftertaste. Not very pleasant going down. Not much hop character to speak of. Overly sweet and nothing works here for me. Would not try again. Where’s all the rich malty flavour? Could easily be mistaken for a malt liquor.
