Draft at Desert Ridge Phoenix. So I’m not sure why this beer hasn’t been rated higher...I really enjoyed it. Remember, the objective of the restaurant/brewery is for you to drink/spend more. This beer definitely had me askin’ for a second and third!!! 24 karat with a nectarine tint, this beer supported a 1/2 inch eggshell head. Sugary aroma and caramel taste that includes hints of roasted nuts and just enough citrus-laden hops for balance. Solid. shigadeyo (3856) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2007
6/28/2007: BJ’s Maibock... Golden-orange color with dense lacing. Has a moderate level of carbonation made of tiny bubbles. Aroma and flavor have toasted malt, creamy citrus (tangerine/clementine). Mild to moderate level of bitterness and some alcohol in the flavor as well. Medium-full body. Smooth and creamy on the palate. This is a very drinkable Maibock.Dogbrick (14391) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Draught sample at BJ’s Restaurant Brewhouse in Columbus, Ohio. Rating #4 for this beer...
On draught at the Columbus location. This beer is a mostly clear yellow/gold color with a medium thin and short-lived off-white head. Spotty lacing. Caramel, citrus and mild hops in the nose. Light-bodied and moderately carbonated with flavors of toasted malt, fruit and hops. The finish is soft with sweet malt and leaves a light spicy hops aftertaste. Above average overall. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 16, 2008

On tap at the Citrus Park, FL location. Pours gold with an orange hue and off white head. The aroma is sweet citrus, apricot, raisin, black pepper, malt sweetness and some assorted spices. The taste is sweet with a pulse of sweet malts with bold fruity esters of apricots, plum, raisins, cantaloupe and pepper popping up here and there. There’s also an earthy sense to go along with some vague spice and herb notes. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2007
On tap @ the Columbus brew pub: Pours a clear gold with no head. Aroma, light bready malts, some fruits, mostly citrus. Flavor, sweet, light caramel malts, some herbal notes, light citrus notes. Pretty solid. lb4lb (2628) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours bright orange with an offwhite head. Smell is some sweet, tangy malt with hints of apricot and sourdough bread. Taste is similar with a tart, sweet malt flavor and balancing bitterness. Nice body and carbonation. Has that somewhat tart, biscuity, tangy malt that isn’t my favorite, but seems like a good example of the style. Nicely made.

Draft @ BJs: Pours orange/golden with very little head. Noticeable caramel malt. Highly carbonated, tastes of toffee and fresh apple undertones with a mild bitterness. Pretty drinkable. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2008
