(Best by 06/07/08) Odd tasting lager that is sweet and acrid, but not to the point of being vinegar-like. The nose is full of tart cherries and apple skin. Maibock? Not! This taste like a weird Lambic Lager hybrid that has gone awry.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 Enjoyed the sweet malt flavor. Solid body. Dark blond color. One of the best American Heller Bocks Ive tried! Retried as Mardi Gras. Fresh from World Market and a worthy Maibock!

This is the second "Mardi Gras" themed beer Ive had this year. The first being Lost Abbey Carnevale Ale. ( Which is an interesting trend.) 12oz twist-off bottle. Pours a light amber color, white foamy head. Aroma of a pale lager. Light aroma of caramel. Hints of corn. Flavor is rich and malty. Not necessarily sugary, but the flavor consists of a rich cereal, malted barley. Rich flavored and somewhat medium bodied. Pleasant bitterness to follow. I am rather impressed with this offering.

Hangover (1129) - oxford, Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Clear copper pour with a thin tan head. Sweet and malty aroma. Earthy malt taste, some caramel and medium carbonation. Nothing really exciting.

LinusStick (3400) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2008
A decent heller bock. Aroma was mostly caramel malt with a faint hoppiness in the aftertaste. Pour was a nice deep brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was very sweet. Mostly caramel malt with a sticky sugary aftertaste. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel. Not bad.

Pours a very darker amber brown. No head. Nose is crisp and airy. And apples. Flavor is very sugary sweet; too much so in my opinion. On the end an out of place metallic tone. Bordering on burnt caramel is there too. Feel is extremely sticky and thick on the liquid and very low on the carbonation. I have to say that overall you can drink this one, but I dont really see any good reason to. Leaning way too far to one side, it doesnt deliver a balanced and worthy experience.

This was not much different from a typical pale bock that you see during the Spring, but this one seems to be a little more watery. A nice beer still.

biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JAN 27, 2008
This beer poured a golden/amber color with a nice white head that lasted a while. Aroma was malty with hints of caramel and toffee. Flavor was very much the same with some hop bitterness coming through to balance the flavor. Very little lacing, good mouthfeel and carbonation. Good beer.

Poobah (415) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Smells a little like apples. Amber color with thin head and modest lacing. Malty, sweet intro with mild carbonation and light, smooth palate. Sweet lasting finish with moderate yet persistent bitterness and some floral notes. Just in time for the greatest free show on earth!

decent but unremarkable maibock from the Louisiana brewery, this mardis gras offering has a more interesting label than the adaquate liquid found within.
