IndianaRed (2323) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 On Tap at the BrewPub. Nice deep redish brown with a modest light tan head. Malty, sewwt woody aroma Nice heavy feel, a bit sweet and easy on the hop bitterness. Goes down easy despite its robust body and ABV. Washed down my Chipotle Burger nicely.

16 ounce can, just listed as maibock. Pours a dark ruby color with a small white head. A light fruity nose with some caramel. Flavorful: rich ripe fruits, strawberries, some dusty sweet malts, dark caramel and toffee. Earthy dry finish. Good.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 20, 2005
Pours a burnt amber with a clear bodied color and nominal creamy head; mild caramelly nose; tart and sweet with a slightly woody nuttiness; fairly malty and slightly spicy flavor, nice balance; intial smoothness gives way to a little astringency over a moderatly chewy palate and a dry finish; might need some more lagering to smooth it out a bit, otherwise it’s good

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Not bad at all, Medijm bodied, with a thick malty mouthfeel and roasty, kind of on the sweet side, with some honey roasted nuttiness. This goes well with food, but I could see where it would be hard to drink alone.

Pounder can found at the 16th St. Albertsons... Poured into my HotD goblet... Darker than most Maibocks, but no real complaints... Close to the higher end of darkness... clear deep amber.... light tannish head sticks around for a while leaving decent spotty lacing. Nose is also a little "dark"... IMO closer to a bigger bockbier or a lesser doppelbock... maltiness has a distinct toastiness/melanoidin quality... still very clean malt profile with barely enough hops to be perceptible. Flavors have a nutty/dry toasty essence too... but again, very clean... surprisingly clean for a stateside bock... should probably lean more toward the pils/pale malt, but this is a fantastic jumping off point. Body is medium with a medium carbonation... pretty much spot-on. Picked up the 4-pack and damn happy I did... These will be enjoyed for days to come. Tone back the darker malts and ramp up the pils malt and this will be a huge winner.

Sledutah (4283) - Utah, USA - JUL 1, 2013
16oz can picked up at The Grapevine, labeled as Seasonal Lager Maibock
Pours clear dark amber with a medium sized beige head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, toffee and ripe fruit. Flavors of toasted malts, grainy, toffee and nutty with a mild bitterness in the finish
Nice and tasty.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 21, 2005
Dark maple syrup, light off-white head. Nose of rich malt and earthy hops. The flavor has a massive body with a little sweetness and alcohol presence. Nutty finish with a reinforcement of the large body. Thick drinking (chewy), I could only have a couple of these. Maybe more hops? I don’t know.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2005
Deep mahogany with a thin filmy head and good lacing. Nose is full of caramel and nuts. Very sweet smelling. Light hops and raisins. Flavor is extremely sweet with a touch of roasted malts. Nutty and earthy. Thick bodied with a sickly sweet finish. As the Bückster said, more hops...

jake65 (2592) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - APR 11, 2007
Draft: Pours a chestnut brown with reddish notes. Smaller white head and light lacing. Nose is heavy on the malt with earth tones and caramel. The taste is more malt oriented with a toasty feel, earthiness, and nuts. A sweeter maltier feel overall. Not bad.
