3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2006 Tasted 19/05/2006. 355ml bottle from RW&S, Wellington.
Vibrant copper (Fritha reckons amber), bright, lightly carbonated, with a disappearing off-white head. Mild nose, but very pleasant, shows off caramel malts, spicy continental hops and a hint of lager yeast. Sweet and sappy malts blend well with with grassy spicy hops and end in a slightly astringent finish (probably the only downfall as it just leans away from perfectly balanced). I’ve seen these Hofbrau beers on the shelf for a couple of months now and the Maibock is a very pleasant surprise (thanks Fritha).
24/05/2006. On tap at the Malthouse, Wellington. Superb biscuity notes from the toasted malt. Upped aroma and overall impression 1 point each.

Has a good aroma mix of caramel and shredded wheat, nice big head and clear copper body with minimal carbonation. Flavour is a good bread and rye mix with sweet wurt notes, and a smooth mouthfeel. Nice and refreshing. Mister_Li (1536) - GERMANY - JUL 19, 2017

Må give Sarek ret, lidt underlig farve for lys. Men ellers en god øl der har en god fylde og en anelse skarp bocksmag Diabobale (538) - ITALY - JUL 9, 2017
Ambrato carico, schiuma evanescente, al naso caramello bruciato e diacetile. Il bocca si ripetono , con qualche nota ossidativa da cartone bagnato. Carbonazione bassa e corpo medio-leggero.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours clear brown. Aroma is light caramel, soft piney hops, little nuts. Body is medium, lively carbonated and rather sweet, even a bit sticky. Little bitterness. Some nut flavours, syrup. Rather sweet palate. Still not my type of beer, but this is okay. Heidelbeer (41) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2017
Head is creamy dense, beige average long lasting. Beer is clear copper brown, dark orange. Aroma is medium intense after caramel, floral hops, a bit metallic and here it comes..gingerbread.
Taste is averagely malty sweet, burnt caramel, and medium bitter. Finish is medium bitter and almost long lasting. Carbonation is refreshing but not overwhelming. A beer that is not complicated, enjoyable without any flaws, almost. By now the best Maibock i drank. tgrtnr (284) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2017
