yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2015
On tap at Heartland, Empire State, NYC. An unclear, amber colored beer topped by a dense, beige head of moderate size. Toffee, dried fruits, alcohol, some banana hints and a wee touch of peaches and grass in the aroma. The flavor is quite sweet, with dried fruits, toffee and some banana. Alcohol flavor and warmth too, with a full, smooth body and a lasting finish. Too much on the alcohol side this one, but sure drinkable. 150624

blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Bready sweet malty aroma with light noble hoppy notes. The flavor is bready and malty sweet, with just a hint of diacetyl, toffee, and light grassy hops. Decent.

pilsnerrogge (2945) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2009
On tap @ Heartland, Empire State Building:
Copper to amber colour, OK head. Sweet and malty caramel aroma. Sweet and malty caramel flavour with notes of dark berries. A touch too boozy but still pretty drinkable.

tgncc (3132) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2009
The appearance is a deep red amber color, lots of white foam. The aroma is bread like and toasted malts. The flavor is caramel, some brown sugar, and astringent hops, more than I had expected. The finish segued into purely hops, leaving an astringent burning on the palate. Medium thickness, oily mouthfeel. Easy to drink. A little more hoppy than I expected.

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Sampler HB 51st. NYC. Nice pour. Clear amber citrus malty. Very smooth. I liked this beer.

3.1
boto (2210) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Draught @ Times Square location: This one pours a rather lighter color than expected. It is a clear golden color with an off-white head. It leaves some lacing. It has a sweet, malty aroma with some floral notes. The taste is somewhat sweet. Faint citrus and maybe a hint of butteriness. Good, but it could be better.

3.3
Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Empire state building. This is a pretty good maibock overall but has some slight flaws. Pours a nice deep golden- light copper with a thin head. Aroma is slightly estery and fruity with slight apple juice, sticky sweet malts, and lightly bready. Flavor has only a slight sharp malt characteristic and despite its high abv, the body is weaker than most great Maibocks. Lacks that sharp full bodied malty sweetness. Finishes a bit fruity as well. Pretty smooth and easy drinking though.
