omhper (18972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2007
Bottled at Café Abseits, Bamberg, Bavaria. Clody golden, dense creamy head. Buttery malt aroma. Sweet with soft, gentle well strcutured malt covered by grassy hops. Chewy and almost velvetty. salty finish. A superb malt character that lifts this beer. They know what they are doing at Zehendner!

Bottle (@ Café Abseits, BA): Hazy, golden, big stable white head, moderate hoppy and woody nose with a light yeasty background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied soft; lingering hoppy finish with a malty counterpart. Glorious franconian Bock.....

harrisoni (12676) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle kindly given to me by Gerhard at Café Abseits in Bamberg. Slightly hazy golden/orange with a lasting thick cream head. Looks really carbonated, I may have to decant this to get some of the gas out of it. Slightly perfumed aroma. Good light bock but with a definite alcohol punch. Some hop, I know it’s called a Maibock, but it does actually taste of May. Like May blossom. Really drinkable. Alcohol is hidden well. Yep really tasty.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. A clear one, except for microfloaties, golden in color and topped by a finger-thick white head. Quite hoppy on the nose, grassy and lightly peppery. Pine cone notes too. Full-bodied, nicely carbonated and slighlty warming. The flavor is bitter, with the maltyness subdued. Lasting bitter finish too. Certainly one of the best heller bocks I’ve had. 110819

bierkoning (9836) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2006
Deep golden color, hazy. Unfiltered. Medium to full bodied. Malty flavor. Butterscotch. Touch of alcohol. Some hopbitterness comes through in the aftertaste. Flowery and a touch vinous. Warming maibock that is reasonably well balanced.

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2009
Draught@Café Abseits. Yellowish golden colour with some haze. Small white head. Aroma is alcohol, vegetables, toffee (quite diacetylic) along with malts. Flavour is bigtime diacetyl, some malts and hops. Pleasant, though the diacetyl scares one at first. Slight alcoholic burn as well.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2010
It’s hazy, warm golden with a creamy white head. The aroma has notes of malt, fruit, slightly spicy alcohol and the sweet flavour has notes of spicy alcohol, malt, light fruit and the finish has a light alcohol-bite.
