yespr (45447) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2009
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light cornish and malty. Crisp bitter and sweet malt flavoured. Bitter and slight grassy finish with a persisting light malt presence. bubbleflubber (2227) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours a hazy golden-straw into the glass, with frothy white head that leaves thick sheet lace. The nose on this is of bananas, bread and silage grains. The flavors are upfront banana bread, mid-palate "mealy" yeast, and a touch of alcohol burn on the sides of the tongue. The finish is a yeasty banana aftermath, dried a bit with spices. A slick, chewy (but not necessarily "thick") mouthfeel, this heller bock is a decent offering, albeit a tad heavy and unilateral. Ungstrup (37602) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2009
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of citrus, hay, malt, bread, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of bread, alcohol, malt - almost chewy, and hay from the hops, leading to a bitter finish where the notes of alcohol and hay lingers. The alcohol tickles the palate. steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 15, 2009
immediate aroma of cereal, fruit, and egg - I didn’t care for it; primarily a cloudy straw body having quickly acquired a frothy white ring to leave only minimal scattered lacing; nice and calm flavor - somewhat citrusy with vegetable notes; creamy yet somewhat fizzy palate that eventually feels oily; decent brew in the end. jgb9348 (6257) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Crisp very hazy golden orange coloured body with a very thin slightly off-white head. Aroma of corn, malt, wheat, apricots, yeast and a bit of sugar. Medium-bodied; Assertive malty flavour with a good apricot sweetness and a touch of coriander seed freshness touched with a little citrus - nice! Aftertaste shows some funky corn, a bit of malt and a good dose of sweetness. Overall, a decent beer - definitely nice in the summer! I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from German Gourmet in Falls Church, Virginia on 09-May-2009, sampled on 02-June-2009.

Sampled in Palo Alto, CA at Madison and FIfth. A pretty good brew. Pretty light but goes down nice. Served in a shaker. A nice brew. Worth a try. Very bubbly. Radek Kliber (7359) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 28, 2009
Bottle 500 ml GarrettB (1600) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Appearance: Hazed gold look. Thick creamy top.
Nose: Sweet malty feel , caramel with fruity malt , smooth nose. Good.
Flavor/Palate :Medium full bodied. Clean organic malt like character. Sweet bock with softer texture. Mild alcohol appeared with time.
I have to wonder how old my bottle was (drunk on March 7th, 2008), because this was still called the Maibock. Whatever its name, this is the third in a string of Aktienbrauerei beers that have been less than thrilling. Even a sturdy poor produces little head hear, and the body has a hazy Autumn glow, with slow, lazy bubbles casually climbing to the top of the glass. This might explain the wan aroma, with the tiniest fumes of apple and pineapple. Despite the attenuated smell, the flavor bursts with a sour off-tasting apple streak, which then fades until it disappears way off into the aftertaste. It is pungent, alcoholic and a bit chemical. with a persistence on the tongue that needs a desperate rinsing. No good. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2008
0.33 l bottle. Golden color with small head. Malty aroma with some fruitiness. Malty and fairly hoppy flavor (for a bock) with herbal and peppery hops, medium bitterness, toffee and hints of alcohol. Slightly chewy mouthfeel. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 27, 2008
from Holiday. Clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet wheat bread aroma, malty taste, and a smooth finish.
