3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep gold with a medium off white head. Aroma is mellow grains and light molasses. Taste is similar up front followed very quickly by some German style hop bitterness. The finish is a pleasant mix of sweet malts and bitterness - nothing over the top.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle at home from old notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, ripe fruits, stone fruit, hint of citrus, a slight tart character and oxidation notes, I don’t know how old this was at the time, but these sit on the shelves for a long time.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- has a yeasty type aroma that is not all that inviting.
Appearance- A dark yellow colored beer with a white head.
Taste- Very disappointing, has a malt flavor that I do not particularly care for. I am a fan of Maibock style beer but this taste is off the mark for me.
Palate - A medium bodied beer with a dry finish with a not-so pleasant aftertaste.
Overall - A big disappointment for me. I was hoping for 16Oz of pure enjoyment, instead it was drudgery finishing this beer off.

Poured from bottle into shaker. Translucent yellow-orange with thicker white head. Smells grainy and lager-y (like a basement or something). Taste is also grainy/ lager-y, with some pretty nice light hop flavor in the background. Palate is pleasant. Not my favorite beer, but pretty solid and good for the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample pour of mild amber gold with white head. Nose is sweetness and mild caramel. Fully malted with little to no hop presence. Light zesty malt with more malt and some caramel notes. Fairly drinkable and enjoyable for the style. I’d do it again.

Pours hazy orange with a medium off-white head. Smells soft fruit, hints of toffee. Taste is fruity, hints of sweetness, perhaps candy. Medium-bodied with a silky texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Sprecher Mai Bock finishes with a smooth lingering sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice amber color with white head. Some floral notes along with some malts too, there’s some other floral note too; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a bit of sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fluffy, ivory head on a clear, ruddy amber brew. I love the Sprecher pint bottles, except they’ve got a twistoff lid. And a bad label. Enticing, biscuits-and-syrup, grainy aroma. Very pleasant and drinkable. Lightly tannic, malty, moderately sweet, a little nutty, a little woody. Vanilla here and there. A cereal-husk bitterness in the finish. Proof Bottle Shop.
