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

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Great label. Pours clear gold with a two-finger white head. Bready, lightly alcoholic, very faintly vegetal aroma. Honey-sweet malt flavor with a tiny bit of alcohol burn. Nearly nonexistent aftertaste. Good and drinkable, but fades much too soon.

skoisirius (1561) - Earth, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Light yellow color. Sweet malt aroma, light flavors of sweet malt, and a light hop note on the end. Decent for this style.

Sweet corny aroma. Appearance is pale yellow with thin white head. Taste is same, and fairly strong at that, with a bit of grass. $3/500ml

argo0 (11316) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2007
(50cl bottle) Large white head atop crystal clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, dough/bread, some caramel, light peach. Taste is moderately sweet, bread/caramel, honey, peach/honeydew, light alcohol, grassy. Medium body, some stickiness, easy drinking for the ABV.

guzzler67 (1490) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Bright gold appearance with an average size white head and spotty lacing. An organic, herbal aroma was there at first, but it faded and left a less inspired sweetness. Taste was primarily sweet malts, including caramel and soft fruit; hoppiness was low keyed. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering, but gummy, finish.

wxman (1387) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Pours a pale gold with minimal white head. Mild aroma of hop flowers and pale malt. Sweet malt flavor, almost like rock candy, along with some mild hoppiness. Malt liquor characteristics noted as well. Not bad, but wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase again.

EithCubes (4699) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Bottle from Stateline. Sweet yeasty aroma with fruit (some green apple, too) and pale malt, honey and oat bran cereal. Sickly pale yellow-golden pour with a soapy, creamy white head. Body slightly oily, thin aspiring to be medium, dry and lightly malty. Touch of sweetness, almost lactic in character, slightly herbal. Honey and perhaps muscat, both linger in the long dry aftertaste. Below avg for style.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 16, 2007
(500 ml bottle (simply called "Aktien Maibock", stamped "02.06") from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maryland/baltim target=blank>Wells Discount Liquors) Mostly smooth rich malt with a tiny bitter bite...Pours hazy pale yellow with a marshmallow fluff white head. Aroma of honey, bread, hay and something a bit sourish like wet blanket. Mouthfeel quite full, fairly smooth. Taste is kind of a sweet and sour honey/bread/hay with a bit of bitterness. Hint of smoke. Bit of licorice in finish. Liked it but not sure about the light sour/wet blanket aspect.
