COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spring time brew contains a sturdy German hop profile that gives it inherent spiciness that leads to a crisp, dry, fresh finish to balance the sweet malt character.

Aroma German malt biscuty aroma with that sweetness that bocks are known for. It does become carmelly,though thats not really appropriate. Big slightly sweet malt ,flavor hop taste not much bittering, a little sharpness from alcohol,detracts from the smoothness that the best German M.Bocks exhibit,still tastey enough

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Dark orange/amber color with a taller soft, cream colored head. Toasted malt, grass, light vegetable, and caramel in the scents. Lightly earthy malt and caramel flavors in the front. LIght alcohol and spicy hops noted in the middle. Finish has more spice and a sharpness that is nearing metallic. Not a smooth easy drinking bock. A few too many rough edges.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 Nice Bock from Upland. Pours a deep orange color with a white head. Aroma is malty and yeasty, with some hops, spice, and pine. Flavor is nice and yeasty, bread and wheat, with nice balance of spice and hops. Fairly solid, and very drinkable.

Beerman6686 (4419) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2008
POured a light amber color with a light off white head. Aroma was very grassy, some biscuts and hints of hops. Flavor was so smooth. Hid the alcohol very well. Just a great mix of grassyness, malt, and nice biting hops

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2008
Deep orange-amber beer with a cream tan head. Aroma is nice and sweet but there is an unappealing dustiness as well. Fairly prominent apple/diactyl butter aroma as well. Flavour is sweet but full of this distracting dustiness. It’s kind of a mess.

skoisirius (1717) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Light, almost see through amber tan with slight head retention. Aroma really doesn’t consist of much beyond a bit of sweet malt. The flavor is generally good, with sublte hints of malty goodness blended with a nice crisp lagered hop bite at the end. Nice for the summer. Nothing to scream about.

Amber color and hints of spice. Very sweet and enjoyable. Would drink again if I could find it.

mgoy (344) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Graduation weekend on tap at Scotty’s in Bloomington. Upland Maibock is an orange/copper color with a nicely built off-white head. The aroma is fantastic with sweet malts, caramel and fruit. The taste is full of fruit and is very enjoyable. This is one of Upland’s best.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2008
Pours Amber with a light, malt flavor. Very on par with most bocks I’ve had. Rather strong-ish bitter aftertaste, but nothing all that bad.
