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.

From a growler purchased at Pauls Grocery in McCall, ID. Pours dark amber with a beige head. Nose of caramel malts and light fruit. Medium plus in body with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is big on the malts but there are some grassy and floral hops there in the finish along with some bitterness.. Pretty darn good.

Can in Ogden and yes I am aware that I am drinking a Maibock in January but with UT’s crazy liquor laws it is hard to find unique beers. Pours a nice caramel color with a bubbly tan head that settles slowly. Cereal and toast in the aroma. Roasted malt dominates the flavor but not overly sweet and balanced with a light hint of hops. Enjoyable.

Reddish amber color out of the can with a creamy off white head. Big malty nose with some alcohol in it. Caramel sweetness with some peaty notes, dried fruit and dusty malts. A bit of earthy bitterness in the finish and more prominent alcohol as it warms.

stevoj (4029) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 2, 2014
Aroma and flavor of nuts, roast grains. Thin head fading to nothing on dark brown body. Taste a bit more bitter than 17 IBUs, was expecting this to be a heller bock, so pleasantly surprised to find it dark.
