This Maibock is a strong blond lager with an aroma of fresh cereals and herbal hops. Its flavor profile develops firm notes of alcohol, a touch of sweetness and a mildly bitter finish.

UXO (910) - CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
Appearance: slightly hazy deep gold with one finger of fluffy off-white head diminishing fairly rapidly to a thin ring, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grainy malt, floral, herbal, honey. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light pepper. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter and spicy finish. (4/5) A bit beefy all-round - which, I guess, is bang-on for the style, which is intended to walk the line between too little and too much. I didn’t even look at the label before tasting, and was surprised at the alcohol presence - not “hot” as such, but definitely there. The lingering bitterness of the finish was also a surprise, given the stated 26 IBU. (Have I mentioned lately how much I love LTM labels? OG, FG, ABV, IBU, aging, serving temperature and glass, tasting notes and food pairings. Why doesn’t everybody do this?) I actually had to go back and read the BJCP guidelines for this style, and was slightly surprised how well this thing ticks all the boxes. I actually thought Maibocks/Helles Bocks were supposed to be a bit lighter all-round, but apparently they’re not. The only area this one really falls flat (so to speak) is the lack of persistence for the head, along with a bit less clarity than the style requires. I waffled a bit as to whether I actually liked this or not, but came down on the side of “yes”. At the very least, it’s an interesting brew. (14/20)

Pours a fairly clear golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of honeyed cereals and alcohol. A little peppery from the alcohol I would think, too. Taste is moderately sweet and offers grapes, cereals and alcohol. It isn’t "hot" but you can feel a slight alcohol burn throughout... Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. Overall I didn’t enjoy this one that much but I’m not too familiar with heller bocks so maybe I need to work on that.

Beardbeerman (282) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
Pours a hazy golden topped by a finger and a half of frothy white head showing average retention and leaving coarse lacing. Vivid carbonation rising up. The nose is mostly floral with the herbal hops blending up into a distinct lily scent, also a faint corn element and some grainy malts. Light alcohol in the nose. The taste is bitter grainy attack leaving a floral aspect on the tongue. Notable sharpness from the carbs all the way to the finish that comes through lightly bitter. Light body. Intriguing product. Cheers!

Tricker (343) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
Bière blonde de 6.8 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col très mousseux au versement. Elle possède un odorat fade et amer. Elle possède un goût amer, prenant, avec comme un goût de terre et/ou de verdure. Son goût comprend une finale fortement alcoolisée, goûteuse et le malt est bien senti. Il y a une légère teinte épicée, mais l’aspect fade reprend le dessus. Correcte !

Franckg (577) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
Robe jaune-orangée légèrement trouble, petit cerne de mousse, fine dentelle aqueuse. Arômes de malt pils, miel, houblon, foin. Le côté sucré se démarque beaucoup. En bouche, goût de miel peut-être trop intense. Les grains maltés se démarquent, un peu citronné mais comme les arômes le laissait présager, c’est très sucré. Finale plus douce et amère, les houblons tentant de nous rappeler qu’ils sont là. Les saveurs s’équilibrent un peu plus à mesure que le liquide se réchauffe mais pour un produit régulier que je pourrais considérer "de soif", cet équilibre devrait se retrouver également lorsque la bière est bien froide.

jamaty (1429) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Color miel, turbia. Escasa espuma. Pronto queda en nada. Herbal en el aroma. En boca cremosa, bien de gas y de cuerpo. Miel en el sabor como predominante. Bien equilibrada con lúpulos herbales y florales. Acompañada de un rico calorcito. FInal seco y amargo acentuado por el gas. Muy buena para comer. Buena en general.

Excalibur123 (286) - Soria, SPAIN - MAY 17, 2015
Presenta amarillo pajizo con abundante cabeza de espuma y buena retención; aromas a cereal, flores, miel ligera y cítricos; en boca entrada suave y refrescante con final a especias; pos gusto largo y un tanto dulce, cuerpo medio y carbonatación algo alta, siguen notas a flores y lúpulo suave; un estilo curioso de cerveza lager, que se bebe fácilmente.

AleRider78 (248) - - APR 19, 2015
Good price for the size of bottle and high abv. Poured a large foamy, creamy head. Has a hazy golden/yellow appearance. Very strong fruity aromas, mainly oranges and mandarins. Faint smell of alcohol coming through. Somewhat similar in taste but also strong hops, malty bitterness. Tangy aftertaste and mouthfeel. Flavour sort of reminds me of the Blanche de Chambly (a Witbier, this one a Bock). Bitter malts in the finish. Pretty good.
