COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, deep golden-blonde lager, Stoudt's version of the German classic style includes a generous amount of honey for added flavor notes. The full-bodied Mai-bock beer is significantly stronger than Stoudt's Gold Lager. Brewed with the finest German 2-row malt and a subtle, yet noticeable touch of noble hops, this year-round beer was traditionally made to cut through the chill of early spring.

rich malt flavor. a alcohol note. beautiful clear rich amber/gold color. quite bitter in the finish. slight sweetness underneath. brewed with honey, but i didn’t detect and appreciable honey flavor. this is really good, but a little too bitter for my taste for a maibock. then again, if it weren’t so bitter it might appear to be too sweet, so, i’ll opt for too bitter over too sweet every time.

Nose is honey, doughy malt, some rich dark fruits. Almost barleywine esque. Flavor is doughy malt, honey, light crackery malt, some root/herbal qualities.

Pours a clear blond with a medium white head...lively...nice lacing. aroma has a touch of honey and some grassy/spicy hop notes. Flavor has nice grassy/spicy hoppiness and pale malt notes...honey late but not sweet. Mouthfeel is full and lively with a bitter, grassy dry finish.

Pours dark gold with a fuzzy head that proves resilient. Smells like beer, plain and simple. Mildly funky lager yeast versus sweet pale malt versus herbal Noble Hop finish. Tastes, well, like the previous sentence. Not that this normality is a bad thing. Double Mai-bock has a lot of white bread in it, but the European hop finish keeps things from falling into a dull stupor. Spicy, floral, hoppy, grainy, doughy, sleepy, and Doc, turns out this pint makes for a solid diversion. Slick and carbonated to perfection, Blonde Double Mai-bock doesn’t stay long in the glass.

A beautiful dark gold pour, nice tan head, nice understated hops, something new to look forward to in spring.

The pours a deep gold that is almost orangy, it is a very intriguiing yet confusing color. The head is about one finger and white. It lasts about a minute and leaves a filmy white cover. The lacing is good. The aroma is very light, small amounts of hops but that’s pretty much it. The taste is bold explosion of flavor compared to the aroma. Is strong and complex with lots of soft hops and a little sweetness.

Drake (7939) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2010
C&C 750 mL bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy golden color with very fine floating particles. Large white frothy head with decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet grainy malts, honey, and a grassy hop finish. The taste is green apple, grassy hop notes, a bit of honey and a faintly grainy finish. Medium bodied. Fairly decent.

Draft @ Hulmeville Inn. Golden pour with some white head. Toffee, slight fruity esters, and some wheat notes. Light bittering hops and some hints of honey.

Bottle. Light amber-colored. Very different in taste to the Austrian Heller bocks I’ve had recently. Strong yeast taste, not much to my liking, actually. More like an ale, I suppose, fruity, not much in hops, and rather weak tasting altogether. Drinkable, but a letdown coming right after the fresh bocks on tap in Vienna.

Clear deep golden pour white head aroma of sweet caramel malts ..... sweet taste of caramel and honey ... very smooth a good malty bock that hides the abv very well .... light hop in the finish a quality brew
