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.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice clear amber color with a one finger head of just off-white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sweet and malty smell with lots of fruit of peach and apricot as well as a bit of toffee and some biscuit and bready malt smells. Along with these aromas are some lighter citrus and earthy hop mixed with just a hint of lemon. Taste – The taste begins with a quite bready and sweet flavor with the sweet being a mix of the lighter fruits that were detected in the nose (peach and apricot). A little bit of orange and grape work their way onto the tongue more toward the middle of the taste, with them being joined by a somewhat grainy flavor. Toward the end, the apricot and peach really intensify and mix with a little amount of an earthy hop flavor and some light hay, leaving a nice fruity sweet and bready flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly lower side for a maibock of 7.0 % abv. with a carbonation level that is average. Overall a little thicker body may have been better for the heavy sweet and malty flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was alright. Overall – A very easy drinking maibock at 7.0 % abv. with a nice big sweet and bready taste. Well worth a try.

Bomber. Nose is clean, golden sunshine with a little cracker and caramel, noble hops, sunny citrus. Pours orange with above-avg carb and a dense, rocky beige head. Taste is pleasantly sweet with caramel, crackery, and a nice sugary doughy cookie character, just really well-developed malt all around. Hops are juicy lemony citrus with floral nobility, and only somewhat subordinate, and very lightly spicy. Fresh, clean medium-full body, a lot of interest in the mouthfeel (very ’swishable’). No alcohol, refreshing and not too heavy, and free of the boozy-type flaws that plague almost all American attempts at this style. I’ve missed you, Stoudt’s, you do things right. [3.9]

Even better at volume! Just perfect. Wow! [4.2]

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have sweeter cookie like malts, light caramel, grass, honey, a mild citrus, nose was lighter and more difficult to discern.

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.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Nose is honey, doughy malt, some rich dark fruits. Almost barleywine esque. Flavor is doughy malt, honey, light crackery malt, some root/herbal qualities.

ReggieDunlap (3052) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2012
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.

oobawa (626) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 21, 2011
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. (5/4/09)

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 (8339) - 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.
