Enjoyed on tap at Huber Haus in Omaha, NE in spring 2012 Review from notes Served in a dimpled Weihenstephan mug Arrives with a huge head that settles to a 0.5cm cap of foam atop the beer. Lacing is significant, a variety of shapes or patterns clinging to the sides of the glass. Body is a golden orange color, transparent with plenty of visible carbonation. Malty, bready aroma with flowery hop presence are the dominant scents, with a background that is slightly grainy and honey-like. Not overly complex, but fairly deep and rich, allowing for it to be enjoyably breathed in frequently. Opens with fairly bright, though still heavy in intensity, caramel malts, backed up by mild honey-like flavors and hop bitterness that is attenuated just under the malt. Mid-palate picks up waves of malt complexiy, from light to fairly caramelized malt sugars. Hop presence becomes somewhat flowery and slightly bitter. This is followed on back of tongue by darker malt sweetness and flowery hops. Lingering bitterness with mild caramel sweetness in the aftertate. Medium-bodied with carbonation that is at first crisp, then peters out and leads to a smooth mouthfeel. Aftertaste is semi-dry, with some stickiness from malts.

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

Very impressed with the all around flavor of this beer. Appearance could be better, but the taste is what counts.

On tap. It is fabulous. Thick, rich caramel flavors blend with a subtle bit of noble hops for an easy-drinking but full-flavored experience.

JonMoore (1848) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2005
Nice clear golden colour, with slim white head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet malty taste, with fruits (pear), caramel, honey and a light bitter finish. Low carbonation, nice creamy mouthfeel, yet it is surprisingly light and drinkable. IMO a superior bock.

One very good beer...not seasonal, which is good! I am very impressed by the consistantcy of the beer; every batch is the same. A good traditional Bock

on tap at the lick off. shimmering golden with a lasting pure white head that laces. aroma of fresh light malt, and alcohol. the flavour is simple but well put together and super clean. lovely high gravity lager. i love maibocks.

superspak (2468) - 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.
