deep golden with medium head. i’m relatively unfamiliar with the style, but the mix of sweet maltiness, bitter hops, and alcohol just creates an unpleasant mess of flavors in my mouth. from the other reviews, it’s clear that i’m in the minority in thinking this is pretty subpar.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a beautiful gold color with a creamy off white head. Nice visible carbonation. Nose is of hops and malt. Nice and creamy mouthfeel. Taste upfront is malt, a little sweet like a doppelbock, but not as dark or as sweet, with hops providing the finish. A good maibock that pairs well with corned beef and rye bread.

Once again, Schell´s state that they are making German style beer, yet throw together another very average American micro. This one is packed full of caramel malts which make it very cloying and viscous. Drink it for the alcohol content if you must.

12oz bottle-pours gold with a foamy offwhite head. Aroma is light malt/grain-bready. Taste is sweet light malt/grain-bready/caramel, some light fruit-pear, perfumy hops.

Caramel, roast and mild floral aroma. Copper with white lasting head. Caramel, mild alcohol, roast and sweet malt flavors. Nice balance...sweet malt and mild bitterness.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into a tall glass. Appearance: Bright, burnished gold with foamy barely off-white head. Aroma: Bittersweet apple, caramel and noble hop spiciness. Not sure I have ever smelled that much apple in a beer before. Taste: Very sweet upfront with candied sugar, caramel, apple, and some grass and straw characteristics. Ends slightly spicy and bitter, but less so than most other Maibocks I have had. Palate: Moderately high carbonation, medium body, fairly warming, slightly cloying finish. Overall: It’s an okay Maibock, but is simply too sweet and alcoholic for my personal tastes.

Golden color, fair amount of head.Bought it room temp shelf,and is slightly out of season which may explain the off yeast aroma.Other than that it is a good malt aroma candylike smell fruit like hop aroma with some alcohol along with a pleasant yeast freshbread like aroma besides the off aroma.Taste is similar very good flavor,low bitterness smooth malt soft hops finishes with a clean mild citrus.Almost a session but good to savor.

Average Maibock beer. I still have to get at least a 6 pack every year whenit comes out.

Pale malt crunch with alcohol burn, not a real flavorful beer but a kick in the face if you need it.
