3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2006 Tasted 19/05/2006. 355ml bottle from RW&S, Wellington.
Vibrant copper (Fritha reckons amber), bright, lightly carbonated, with a disappearing off-white head. Mild nose, but very pleasant, shows off caramel malts, spicy continental hops and a hint of lager yeast. Sweet and sappy malts blend well with with grassy spicy hops and end in a slightly astringent finish (probably the only downfall as it just leans away from perfectly balanced). I’ve seen these Hofbrau beers on the shelf for a couple of months now and the Maibock is a very pleasant surprise (thanks Fritha).
24/05/2006. On tap at the Malthouse, Wellington. Superb biscuity notes from the toasted malt. Upped aroma and overall impression 1 point each.

0,5 l botttle. Pours out in the glass clear red golden, maybe copper, with a huge head. Smell is sweet sticky malty. Taste starts decent malty, light fruity, later grainy and increasing toasted malt, all in a smooth way. No real bitterness. Nice one.

La Urbock è ottima, in linea con la Eggenberg Urbock come sapore, colore ambra scuro tendente al rosso, molto forte il gusto di malto e un pelo speziata, finale leggermente secco.

On tap. Aroma piuttosto intenso di caramello, malto, miele d’acacia, leggermente erbaceo, erbe officinali. Colore ramato, schiuma beige fine e poco persistente. Gusto amabile, maltato, caramello e miele sono i primi palesarsi, sul finale leggermente amara da luppolo, pochissima tostatura. Abbastanza equilibrata molto rotonda, piena, calda alcolica. Equilibrata ed armonica.
