Draft at the source. Clear orange yellow color. Aroma of orange peel and raw bread. Taste is very sweet orange. Doesn’t resemble a maibock. Oakes (18167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
Dull light amber colour. Bready aroma with a hint of peppery alcohol. Flavour is much the same...it’s a fairly simple beer really. Now, maibock is supposed to be a two note beer, which is one of the reasons I don’t much care for it. There are two things I think maibocks should do - one is balance off the two elements. This beer does that. The spiciness and dryness of the alcohol is a great foil for what would otherwise be a fairly syrupy beer. The other thing I want is beautifully extracted malts. That’s a bit trickier. Lord knows I can’t do it myself. But Andechs, Ayinger...those Bavarian guys can. That’s why they are the masters. jtclockwork (16831) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2011

I had it side-by-side with a Hacker Pschorr Maibock, and it didn’t hold a candle. It has a super buttery malt bill. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2011
