COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Very few breweries in Germany nowadays still brew a light colored bock beer. Will-Bräu is still continuing with this tradition. The beer has a golden color, is very malty & has a rich flavor with a hint of sweetness. A well rounded brew.

mmmm tasty.... very thick considering how light in color it is... has the looks of a pilsner, with the body and strength of a double-bock. I’m not complaining.

Will-Brau Ur-Bock pours to a beautiful, bright, deep blond color with a thick white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is fantastic with deep/crisp pale malt aromas, aromas of light toast, and balancing hop aroma. The palate is firm with lots of good pale and slightly sweet malt flavors paired with flavors of lightly toasted bread, on a slick and round body. This makes this 7.5% abv beer dangerously drinkable. Will-Brau finishes with more fantastic deep malty flavors up front, then ends with just enough herbal hop bitterness to dry out the sweet malty character of this beer. This is an outstanding Maibock well worth seeking out if you can find it in your market.

WOW! A very tasty beer. A nice dark golden color to it with a white head. Aroma is that of mashed/ground malt, VERY nice. Nose is also herbs and a grassy blend of hops. Flavor was malty, grassy, toasty and bittersweet. Nice silky finish makes this rate very high with me.

As Maibock. Bottle at the brewpub. It’s warm golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt and flower. The sweet flavour has notes of newly harvested grain, malt and clover-flower. It’s soft and pleasant and hides the alcohol well.

40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - FEB 27, 2002
Crystal clear golden pilsner-like appearance with a thin light colored head. Malty aroma with a hint of coffee and chocolate. Malty barley wine-like flavor that is sweet but with a slight acidic twang. Quite heavy mouthfeel for such a light colored brew. Slightly cloying finish with a short hop flash (just flavor, no bitterness). A tasty beer that resembles a light barley wine more than a light doppelbock.

This is a really nice pale bock. Great malt taste that I can only describe as ’german’ Sweet but not cloying. I get just a whiff of lingering hop bitterness on the tongue at the finish. Solid bock.

Pretty tasty. Not what I expected. Very rich, kind of sweet start then slighly bitter finish. Alittle dopplebock-like

The beer makes its escape from the 500ml brown bottle a slightly beclouded golden color with a modest creamy white head and after its disintegration, the lace forms a thin sheet to obscure the glass. Malt dominates the nose, sweet and fresh, also crisp and clean with the start nicely malted and a bit sweet with a light to middling top. Finish has pleasant hop spiciness with the acidity light to moderate and the aftertaste desert bone dry, a nice drinkable beer.
