COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maibocks are a traditional Teutonic seasonal specialty. We brew ours to be hugely malty and subtly finished with a variety of continental hops, with an eye-pleasing russet brown color.

incredible! poured a brownish copper color with a thin white head. head had great retention. aroma was hoppy and peppery. Taste had caramel and hops. The transition of flavours really impressed me initally being sweet and then cascading into a nice hoppy tone. Real good on the mouth. Almost perfect.

Dave Yarrington kicks ass with this one!!!! Pours a clear orange-yellow. Nice tannish head. Clean malty-bread aroma. Big malty robust flavor. Obvious Munich and/or Vienna maltiness. This would be a favorite next to Ramstein.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Pours a clear reddish-brown, with a medium sized tan head, mostly diminishing, leaving some lace. Aroma is big & strong - tons of caramel, bread, and some appple and pear, backed with a mild hoppiness that keeps all the malt aromas in check. Flavor starts sweet, like caramel covered apples slapped between a couple pieces of whole grain bread, ends with a pleasant and subtle bitterness. Huge, bombarding mouthfeel, a lot of different flavors mingling about, coating the tongue, and lingering forever. An amazing brew.

22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a bright, clear orange color, with a huge off-white colored head. left a sticky lacing down the side of the glass. Aromas are of slightly roasted malt, sweet orange blossom honey, funky lager yeast. Flavors are of honey, sweet malts, dry biscuits, slightly roasty too. Thick mouthfeel, rich body. Chewy in texture, sweet aftertaste. Slightly dry finish, like honey. Damn good beer overall.

I think this one’s my favorite of the series. Great maltiness, light, almost minimalist hops, perfect balance. I can’t imagine this beer being done any better.

Smuttynose Maibock pours to a beautiful, bright, deep amber to brown color with a thick and creamy tan head that slowly fades and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful, with big sweet malty, nutty, slightly toasty aromas and hints of peppery alcohol heat. The palate is rich and full on the tongue with a sea of smooth malt flavors. Flavors of sweet malt, toast and nuts are slighty sticky on the toungue as the glide down. Smuttynose Maibock finishes with more of those sweet malty nutty and toasty flavors, and ends with a slightly cloying, and warming burn. This beer is a wonderful example of Maibock, a beer style that is a bit hard to find in ale dominated New England.

Pours a wonderful golden hue with a nice bright white head that sticks around, and laces nicely. NIce spicy aromas. Initial carbonated attack which fades to a slightly sweet finish. Very nice.

On tap. A perfect coppery color with a wonderfully complex nose. I love the sweet malty flavor. Just another affirmation on how wonderful Smuttynose's stuff is.

Pours and incredible translucient copper color with a tall fluffy ivory head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma has a fruity maltiness and a good clean sweetness. Taste starts with a semisweet maltiness, some caramel tastes take over the middle, and it ends with just a faint bitterness to balance it out. Very smooth and clean taste that is really impressive. Another great Smuttynose brew.
