4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pale, minimal head, clear, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, salty, medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, great finish. Really like this beer. Considering its very potent, it tastes great. Its very easy to drink and find that it doesnt bloat you at all. Good thing that books are not judged by cover because this beer just looks terrible. Its head disapears so quickly and thin texture of this beer makes it look very unpleasant. However, its taste thats counts.

Clean white foam leaves some lace atop a pale and very clear golden lager. Bread and barley sugar aroma with a slight hint of pine. Medium bodied with rich clean malt with just a little sappy caramel, hops are in there but not up front. Really really clean and well crafted maibock.

500 ML can. Pours a very small head. Apple juice color.Malt like aroma.Light tasting for a German beer. A bit of sweetness in the aftertaste. A good beer to start off the night at 7% alcohol. Overall a pleasant brew.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5L can. Pours an amber colour with no head. Complex aroma smells very fruity. Palate is smooth but thick, and it leaves a light film in the mouth - not unpleasant though. Very strong sweet malt flavour. Quite overwhelming at first, but it eases up a bit. I find the malt flavour hides any other flavours that may be present. I definitely prefer the festbock.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 7.0%. The aroma is caramelly and sweet, herbal, peppery and slightly soapy. Clear grey golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is rather sweet, OK for the style, and in good balance with the alcohol. Quite clean and a little dusty.

creamy head, disappearing fast. A sweet, bit hoppy aroma.
The taste is malty and sweet with a short bitter finish. A good, but not memorable maibock

I just ’stumbled’ upon this beer at a provincial liquor store here in B.C.
I was concerned about the beer being in a can but the subtle sweet finish makes it all worth it ...
Like a fine wine in a can if you can dig it .
It’s Thanksgiving here in Canada and thankful I am for this beer ...
CHeers ... bottoms up :P

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours pale golden, large white pancake batter like head, spotty lacing, with soft carbonation. Pale malts, sweet grass, and light fruit on the nose. Grassy flavor, fairly sweet, malty as well. Good body, smooth mouthfeel. Light sweet finish, simple, clean, smooth malty trailer. Against the grain, but I find it quite enjoyable!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml can. Golden yellow brew (Lovibond 7/8) with thicker, white head. Dissipates into thin lace fairly soon after pouring. Aroma is citrus. Fair carbonation, could use more. Taste is very smooth: oaky, with a creamy hoppy flavour. Soft palate. Stronger oak finish - something left to coat your mouth.

Dark straw to light amber in color, light malt aroma. What was interesting about this beer was the silky, smooth mouth feel coupled with the warmth of alcohol. i found this to be a nice beer especially from a can. I was also surprised by the color of this Mai-Bock.
