APPEARANCE - light in color. Lighter than most maibocks, even though maibocks are light bocks.
NOSE - very little to it.
FLAVOR - pretty mediocre. Heavy lager flavor comes through. Not much bochiess to it.

Slightly pink-gold with a small, off-white head.
Aroma is light hops, barley malt, honey-apple.

6/11/2011: Moerlein Saengerfest Maibock Lager... Aroma: Clean, zesty citrus notes; crisp Pils and biscuit-like malts; floral, slightly spicy hops; fruity, Riesling bouquet. Appearance: Shiny golden yellow color with waves and torrents of carbonation bubbles; transparent complexion; large 2-3 finger puffy and airy beige head. Flavor: Lightly sweet Munich, toffee maltiness with grassy, floral hops, a mild bitterness, and a bready mouthfeel; finish drops off rather quickly. Palate: Medium-body; mostly smooth; average texture. Overall: Just okay; really mild for a Maibock; drinkable, but really nothing special; I drank one and moved quickly onto something else...
12 fl. oz. bottle from Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #17 for this beer.
Bottle. Pours an orangy copper with no head. Aroma is slightly grassy and candyish. Tastes is sweet initially with some bitterness creeping into the picture towards the finish.

Clear golden copper with an off-white two finger head that slowly reduces to a head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is very sweet caramel malt with light infusions of dark fruit and floral hops in a medium body. All move smartly to a crisp, lingering finish. The sweet side is dominant, detracting from an otherwise very drinkable brew. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2013
32oz growler, filled about 9 hours ago from the Lager House.. There was a little bit of extra air space in the top of the growler. Totally clear orange color. Minimal bubbly white head, fades to virtually nothing. Medium-plus body. Light, crisp carbonation, pretty smooth. Some floral notes in the nose. Light caramel malt, little lightly spicy hop, little fruitiness. Pretty bready. Mostly sweet taste, a light bitterness, and a very light bite in the finish. Not a bad maibock to session JaBier (7972) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle purchased at Kroger. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Malty aroma with some caramel, lager yeast and a bit of toastiness. Sweet malt and caramel flavor with a light apricot character before a toasty and sweet finish. osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours a clear orange with a slightly off-white head. Aroma of grain and light hops. Flavor biscuits, spice, and toasted malts. Pretty good. FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Draft at the lager house. pours deep golden amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty and bready with notes of biscuit and toast, a slight hop spiciness in the back. Flavor is much the same, lots of that bread and biscuit, really smooth, with a stronger herbal hop presence and light fruitiness. Medium body and a sgarp carbonation. Nice beer
