SPRING - Pale malty flavors are balanced with a rich hop flavor and a light fruit bouquet in this tradtitional spring-time lager. Extended aging and traditional dry-hopping give this potent, blonde bock a distinctive flowery aroma.

Shag (2769) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2013
This poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus, caramel, and candy sugars. The flavor is both sweet and bitter with some citrus showing up along with caramel and a bit of molasses and buscuit.. This seems to be spot on for the style and went well with my spicy bratwurst. Overall good beer.

superspak (4312) - Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2013
16 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 1/26/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of carbonation streaming up retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, apple, pear, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, light pepper, and herbal earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, pear, apple, pepper, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, and herbal earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, pepper, toast, toffee, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance with good complexity; good amount of robustness; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice maibock! Very nice balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering; and great example of the style.

Lemke10 (948) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a beautiful clear amber color with a thick foamy head. Has the scent of wheat and sweet caramel malts. Taste is that of mostly malts with slight hints of citrus. Taste is rather mild in comparison to other Mai Bocks I’ve had. Slight bit of a dry after taste but still rather well made.

gpekar (486) - Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Poured a slightly hazy golden amber with a tall creamy off-white head that had good retention. There were lots of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. A nice fragrant aroma predominately yeasty with some floral tangerine, caramel and toffee. The beer had a good body and good carbonation There was a good malty caramel sweetness with a hint of a hops bitterness initially. The fruity hops flavor and bitterness built in the middle. The fruity flavor faded towards the finish, but the hops bite lingered well into the finish that was more like the traditional lager crisp finish.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Couldn’t pass up a case of the 16oz bottles on sale at my favorite distributor for $20 even - steal of a deal. Pours a clear light brown with slight offwhite head. Aroma very malty with a lot of that cherry medicinal aroma I always associated with mai bocks. Flavor is relatively light and a bit watery, dark cherry notes are more subdued with a tad bit of yeastiness and a slight boozy warm finish. Overall, not a ton of depth, but a very drinkable maibock.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 15, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured a clear coppper color with a solid white lasting head. Aroma is caramel malt and floral hops, with just a touch of lemon zest. Taste is a nicely balanced with bready malt and bittering hops that impart a floral character. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

guzzler67 (1644) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Hazy, amber/orange appearance with a large, off white head and decent lacing. Yeasty, sweet, caramel malt aroma with notes of apple and honey. Mild floral hops are dominated by grainy, sweet malts and crisp fruit flavors. Funky, medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2012
As smelly as this beer is, it actually has a sweet, slightly malty mouth feel. It has a pale orange color with a frothy white head and an aroma of light caramel malts and lager yeast. In the mouth, it has a slight oxidized flavor, but is predominantly a sweetly-malted lager with an almost creamy body and a dry, almost champagne-like finish. Not bad!

ttoadee (1173) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Light orange, quick white head. Malt and soft fruit in the nose. Medium sweet on the tongue. Taste is alcohol, malt, and a hint of citrus. Finishes with a brace of hops. Great with ham and rye with Colemans mustard.
