mjs (4640) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2013
(Keg at the brewpub, 20130514) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized, dense and white. Aroma had grass, malts and bitterness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grass, sweetness, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, grassy and bitter. A bit like a helles with more malts. Nice to drink.

EithCubes (5003) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Tap in the Biergarten. Clear golden with lots of carbonation and a large fluffy white lacing head. Sweet taste with light floral hops but predominately a beautiful, very sweet clover honey. A gorgeous character. Full body with bubbles crisping around the side. Heavy but very much recommended.

KyotoLefty (6563) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2010
Draught at the Spitalgarten. Clear, brilliant gold, like the regular hell, but with a rockier head. Similar grassy hop aroma as well, but with more noticeable malt and a bit of hay. Sweeter, slightly stronger and maltier, but not too sweet or cloying. Rather light and crisp for a bock, with an ok hop and alcohol finish. Sense of alcohol is more like a festbier than a bock.

Tap at brewpub. Honey barley malt aroma with light astringency. Clear golden yellow color with large head. Sweet honey malt flavor - moderately bitter/astringent finish. Nice, drinkable Heller bock.

Maria (10169) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2009
Comes as Spital Heller Bock. It’s hazy golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, flower and a touch of honey. The flavor has sweetness and notes of flower, malt, light alcohol and honey/nectar. It’s warming and quite harmonic.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2009
Slightly hazy straw colour. Great aroma - I didn’t know maibock could smell like this - fruity, fresh, loads of bread, herbal notes and light spice. Fantastically appetizing. Fresh, bready palate. Very approachable, with subtlety and style. Some spicy alcohol late. Good example.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Draft from brewery keller. Bright gold with slight haze and a small white cap. Aroma of fresh springtime herbs, grains, gardens. Lovely aroma. Soft, good, sturdy body. Nice sweetness in the finish. Goes through a lemon/orange stage and then rounds to a spritzy fun finish. Can taste a little alcohol too.

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 18, 2008
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of straw and hints of butter. The flavor is sweet with notes of fruit - especially peaches, but also a light note of alcohol. Nice body.

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2007
(33cl bottle) Almost clear, golden colour with a medium-sized lacing foamy white head. It smells like a fresh Helles: moderately sweet, slightly bready malt aroma with notes of citrus and herbal hops. Medium-sweet, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation, chalky mouthfeel. Bready malty taste; sweet and slightly bitter, chalky finish. Decent stuff.
