3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, Philly location. Pours a clear honey gold body with a wispy off-white head that left some light lacing. The nose is sweet and clean with some light honey notes and toasty malt. Flavor is sweet with lots of light caramel and honey up front. Some lingering honey sweetness on the finish. Medium to full bodied with very light carbonation. Very nice Maibock. These guys really know what they’re doing with lagers.

Tap at Triumph. Wow- I’m very impressed by this brewery. They are really able to create simple, well-executed, fresh session beers. Way to go! Even for a maibock, which is a style I could care less about: they are really able to do it. Pours a clear yellow with a scant head. Big licorice, phenolic characters coming out with lots of white sugar. Soft carbonation, sweet, fruit body that doesn’t turn to cloying. Pretty good.

POurs gold, aroma is earthy. Taste is sweeter then I thought it would be. Very think, but this makes it easier to drink a few.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at New Hope a few months back. Poured a light orange crystal clear with a pure white head which faded into some nice lacing. The aroma is somewhat phenolic, fruity, and crisp. Flavor starts crisp and spicy, fading into a malty sweetness while remaining slightly tart. Medium body, clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 Tap at New Hope. Pours a very pale golden with a nice fluffy tight white head. Aroma is bready, light toffee, pils malt, light toasted vienna, with a fair amount of phenols and grassy hops. Flavor is even more toasted malts- sharp vienna, bready pils, with a light solvent, sharp malt and yeast character- light phenol and herbal grassy hops. Easy drinking and smooth, and overall I liked this maibock but still not quite at the 100% level.

Draft at Princeton. Poured a mostly clear orange/amber with an average size white head. Aroma had slight sweetness about it with notes of grapes and honey over grainy malts. Flavor had far less sweetness with more of a grainy biscuit body. Medium to thinner bodied for the amount of carbonation.

Draft. Advertised as "Maibock". Pours gold with a white head. Malty aroma with caramel, bread and earth. Medium body. Flavor is based on a lightly sweet malt back with caramel and bread notes and also has a nice earthy hopiness. Very nice.

I liked this enough to get a pint of it. it was almost the exact opposite of how the waitress described it. she described it as dry and i thougth it was very fruity and very sweet.

Golden color with an average size head. Aroma is nice & malty with lots of sweetness and perhaps a bit o’ hop. Taste was sweet and surprisingly hoppy - smooth & tasty with a nice finish. Not a typical Maibock, but I’ll be back for more.
