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

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.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2007
500ml bottle -- poured virtually clear, only lightly carbonated, with a thin head. The aroma was shockingly malty and mashy, like an operating brewery smells. The flavor is excessively musty, biscuity and flat. There’s a bit of a lemon cookie swirl to it, but otherwise this is a disappointingly flat, lifeless mellowly yellow brew. (#2984, 6/19/2007)
Earlier Rating: 6/6/2007 Total Score: 2.8
500ml bottle; Poured with a nice sunshiney reflective golden hue and a bombastic, fizzy head that quickly laid down into a small white foam head. The aroma is ein bischen syrupy, but mostly a light malt. This drinks easily, slightly viscuous, but not overly so. Except for a tad bit of an alcoholy bite, this drinks not much different than an everyday helles, without much of a stand-out character either way. (#2961, 6/6/2007)

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours golden with an average size white head. Aroma of caramel malts, slight fruit, and grains. The flavor is sweet, caramel, fruit, alcohol is present, but hops are not detectable. Not a bad brew.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Medium gold pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of apricot, honey, pale malt, hopcitrus, slight white peppercorns. Tastes fruity at first, matched by a solid hopcitrus and a firm amount of malty sweetness, but not too sweet.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle. Sparkling gold body. Tall white froth on the surface. Nose is malty and sweet with grains, some buttery bread and grassy notes. Taste is sweet and malty with more grains, buttery bread, and grass or hay. It’s very sweet in spots and has some cereal notes as well. Body is soft but medium with moderate carbonation. Finishes with more grains, cereal, sweet malts, grass and buttered bread. Not bad.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Booming from the bottle, settling in as translucent golden rod. An icy, oil overlay comprises the head. Husky, grainy aroma strides with some corn chex, creamed wheat and sun stroked oats. Perfume and baguettes and a sweet cream plastic composure. Straight up blond bock with toasted corn husks and seven grain biscuits. Fuller bodied mouthfeel with caramel capsulation of dried out wheat stalks. Cornish oats and sweet cream integrated into buttery baguettes. Bleached flour takes it to corn bran muffins in the finish, finishing with an all out toasted display to the grain planes of yore. Thanks for the bottle, tpkenned!

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2007
My bottle says Maibock on the front. Pour is a cloudy yellow with a average white head. Aroma is caramel and fresh fruit. Like a big candy apple. Flavor is very sweet with some caramel and molasses. A big does of alcohol hits you in the end. Prob the better of the Maibock i have had today.

1FastSTi (3338) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Thanks Joel. The beer pours to a clean golden body with a nice foamy white head. The aroma is heavy on the noble hops. Notably, Saaz. Sweet grainy corn and silage. The flavor is sweet corn, sweet milkiness, and lots of noble hops. The palate is bitter, sweet, and nicely textured.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Huge frothy head that caught me off guard! Whoa, that’s a lively one! Noble hops making their presence known in the aroma. A little corn I dare say as well? Slight nutty character and a bit of mustiness as well. Don’t know if this held up too well. Decent malt sweetness for the style and the overall use of noble hops saves this one. Ordinary.
