22 oz bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet bready malts, light caramel, biscuity, some mild fruity character, apples, grass, lighter, decent but I wouldn’t revisit.

Smooth, light caramel sweetness, true to the style and doesn't try to do too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light golden orange. Little lacing. Notes of cereal and caramel. Could use more body and lacks flavor.

Aroma is bready, vegetable, honey. The appearance is reddish gold, persistent white head, slighly hazy. The flavor is caramel, hoey, bread, vegetable. More sweet than not. The finish has a light yet astringent hop bittering, left on the palate. The mouthfeel is medium, slick. Decent maibock. I’m glad I got to try this tonight, as the month of May is almost over.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Tap at Barcade: Orange pour with good clarity and a fading white head. Very sweet malt aroma- honey soaked bread and caramelized Munich malts. Average palate- slick with prickly peppery notes. Honeyish flavor- too sweet- lacking the softness of German Maibocks. Bready & sweet with some peppery alcohol and a touch of noble hop bitterness, but it doesn’t blend cohesively with the under attenuated body. Just another overly sweet American Maibock.

LilBeerDoctor (3737) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On tap at SPH. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of sweet, corny malt, sweet apple, and sorghum. Flavor of pale lager malts up front with a sweet fruity finish. Decent, but palate is a little thin. 7/4/7/3/14 (3.5/5)

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Tap at SPH. Aroma of bready malt with some red fruits, notably raspberry. Flavor the same, not at all complex, but solid bready malt with some fruitiness that is kept in check and not let to run wild into pure sweetness. Tasty for what it is, but not transcendent.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - APR 29, 2009
Orange golden color with a fluffy head. Aroma of malt and a hint of spice and bread. Taste is smooth and light with a little grain and mello rye pepper type spice. A hint of light bitterness rounds it out. Light and not that great, simple.

jgb9348 (5681) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Crystal clear orange coloured body with light golden tints with no head at all. Aroma of alcohol, light malt and some apricots. Light-bodied; Decent malt flavour with not much else. Some yeast and a bit of sugars - but fairly bland, all in all. Aftertaste clean and pure, no complexity. Overall, not great and not worth trying - far substandard compared to other Southampton beers. Pass this one up unless you love to try all Mai Bocks! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purcased from K&E Discount Beverage in New Paltz, New York on 06-August-2006.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of grain, honey, potatoes, herbs, and barley. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, dense, tan head that lasted throughout. Clear but slightly hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malts, caramel, herbs, resin, hops, grains, and a little plastic. Light to medium body. Smooth, oily texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, malty finish.
