3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy dark amber with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Solid tart citrus nutty malty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium balanced nutty sweet flavor with the same smooth finish of average duration. Much better than my expectations.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red hazy body, viscous, oily, bright and glowing in my glass. Has a medium thickness, which is quite thick for maibock, and preferred, actually, and it’s properly crisp, toasty and clean, with a chewy but fresh corn and bran flavor, and a sharp, fresh, smacking finish. Of course there’s a bit of rye staleness in there as well, but it’s very malt-forward, very crisp, bright and brash, but has a nice toasted corn and bread flavor in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to atpayne for this. Pours copper/ruby with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma of big malt, hops, fruit, black pepper, floral, and slight tobacco. Tastes malty, fruity, with some finishing caramel and hops. Great complexity, and well balanced. A great maibock.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a spotty lacing cream-colored head. Has a semisweet toasty grainy German malty nose with a touch of noble hops. Starts with good fullness and a grainy caramel malty sweetness well balanced with some slightly resiny earthy green hops finishing drier crisp and bittersweet. Very true to style and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured clear medium orange with a creamy cap of white head. The aroma picked up dry earthy spices upfront, backed by aged caramel and bread.. just a bit of warmth overhead. The flavor opened with some tangy, fruity bitterness and earthy character, with caramel and redder fruity meat behind.. peppery spices and alcohol danced well around the tongue, and everything came back together on the finish.. warm through the belly. Medium-plus bodied with active carbonation on the palate.. spicy and well-balanced, but there was an almost cloying feel at points on the back. Overall a very well executed bock.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a murky dark caramel, small off-white pancake batter like head, semi-strong carbonation, with fairly attractive lacing. Toasted malts, nuts, oats, light caramel, and cereal on the nose. Forwardly malty, but not as strong as the aroma. Also nutty, with a somewhat smooth mouthfeel. Medium bodied, finishes somewhat nutty/malty and slightly sweet. Light, but quite drinkable. Thanks goes out to atpayne for the trade!
