COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein starkes, helles, untergäriges Bier. Es ist weder süß noch wuchtig, sondern herb und frisch – wie das Allgäu im Frühjahr!

jgb9348 (4860) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Crisp very hazy golden orange coloured body with a very thin slightly off-white head. Aroma of corn, malt, wheat, apricots, yeast and a bit of sugar. Medium-bodied; Assertive malty flavour with a good apricot sweetness and a touch of coriander seed freshness touched with a little citrus - nice! Aftertaste shows some funky corn, a bit of malt and a good dose of sweetness. Overall, a decent beer - definitely nice in the summer! I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from German Gourmet in Falls Church, Virginia on 09-May-2009, sampled on 02-June-2009.

Sampled in Palo Alto, CA at Madison and FIfth. A pretty good brew. Pretty light but goes down nice. Served in a shaker. A nice brew. Worth a try. Very bubbly.

I have to wonder how old my bottle was (drunk on March 7th, 2008), because this was still called the Maibock. Whatever its name, this is the third in a string of Aktienbrauerei beers that have been less than thrilling. Even a sturdy poor produces little head hear, and the body has a hazy Autumn glow, with slow, lazy bubbles casually climbing to the top of the glass. This might explain the wan aroma, with the tiniest fumes of apple and pineapple. Despite the attenuated smell, the flavor bursts with a sour off-tasting apple streak, which then fades until it disappears way off into the aftertaste. It is pungent, alcoholic and a bit chemical. with a persistence on the tongue that needs a desperate rinsing. No good.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2008
0.33 l bottle. Golden color with small head. Malty aroma with some fruitiness. Malty and fairly hoppy flavor (for a bock) with herbal and peppery hops, medium bitterness, toffee and hints of alcohol. Slightly chewy mouthfeel.

from Holiday. Clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet wheat bread aroma, malty taste, and a smooth finish.

Wow. Nice. First impression. Malty first sip and the same from thereon. Quite nice, though a bit on the malty side for me.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2008
500ml bottle Heller Belli Bock bottle. Light golden color with a faint cloudiness. Very sweet and rich, with the pungent malt/yeast characteristics of a Maibock. Fruity tastes dance around the moderately high alcohol. A little more of a floral aroma and mild hop character than a lot of Bocks. Great beer, for the true German Lager lover.

dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Aroma of corn sweetness mixed with a little roasted malt and something sour. Mild sweet flavors with an even softer finish.

Fantomasus (229) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Pours a cloudy gold with a flimsy white head. Smells of sour malt and farm fields. Flavors of malt, apple, banana, with some apricot and hop. Finish is short and clean with little hop and sourness. Quite drinkable.
