Poured from bottle into Summit Pint glass.

Clear golden amber-blonde with thin white head. Some bubbly lacing lines that rise and fall.

Aroma of fruity and bready malts with a strong noble hop spicy kick. Some alcohol is noticeable as well.

Interesting mix of of semi-sweet fruit malts (peach, apple, pear, orange) and a very dry, spicy and peppery hop bite.

Moderate carbonation, smooth sweet body that abruptly turns very dry at the finish.

Pretty strong Maibock overall in terms of malts, hops and alcohol - not that I’m complaining.

Bottle via the Bonster....what a gal! Pours a gloden Orange with at heathy wavy white head powered by steady carbonation. Head sticks to sides in gentle waves and does not break up. Lots of malt in the nose. Hops cut thru the sea of caramelized malts near the finish and touch the edges ofyour tounge for a pleasant bitter tang. Labeled as Primator Maibock.

Pours pale golden with generous white head. Noes is somewhat light with a clean, lightly malty aroma. Palate is warm with the alcohol, malt as the focus, and a clean finish. More alcohol warmth into the finish and aftertaste. It’s light enough to enjoy with everyday food but perhaps too hot for being a sessionable beer.

Geiserich (4644) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 24, 2009
Fruity, malty aroma. Flavor is fruity, malty and light sweet balanced by a well hopped end. Complex brew. Golden color.

ganache (6070) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Bottled as Primator Maibock (16P, 7.5% abv). Earthy, grainy nose, dark but alluring, with a little artificial sweetener. Pale golden with a little orange, no gradient at all, with a rocky off-white head. Very sweet taste, light-medium bitterness. Grape, spiced dough and bready notes, cracker, light herbs, light grass, raisin-sugar and light corny. Grainy and faint toffee, some honey. Medium body, a little harshness, a little metal. Lots of negatives here but it’s hard to argue against the product as a whole - nuanced and enjoyable despite the rough edges.

This is an ezxcellent maibock, if this is what I’ve had. I’ve had the beer labelled "maibock" and it should be classed as such since it fits the characteristics beautifully.

It’s bright, deep gold, with a huge white head that shrinks steadily to a permanent, rocky head and it leaves decent, foamy lace.

The aroma is a wonderful, full-bodied Maibock. It is very toasty, doughy bread, with slightly caramelised raisin, grape, honey, grain, overall fruitiness and hint of mineral.

The taste is similar, full-bodied,, well-rounded and full of character. It has strong toasty grain, bread, spicey-raisiny-grapey alcohol, herbs, and some grass. Malty sweetness is light but firm and carries a fairly strong, slightly dominant herbal and grassy bitterness. This and a light raisiny spice dominate the finish to linger nicely over the sweetness.

16 deg plato and 7.5 abv. it says maibock on the bottle but i think this is what I’m drinking. Clean, sweet butterscotch. Clear yellow, uneven head, sticky lacing. This isn’t my thing. I don’t know if the diacytl is out of hand or if the beer doesn’t jive with me. Metallic, mildewy and corny. Clean body, offensive metallic finish.

danielyabu (1706) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - SEP 27, 2009
Large, frothy, off-white head. Excellent lacing. Mostly diminishing head. Sparkling thin dark yellow body. Aroma: strong of honey. IF: moderate sweetness and bitterness. FF: heavy bitterness and light sweetness. Long duration. Palate: light-medium body, dry texture, light alcoholic and metallic finish lively carbonation. Good metallic bitterness. Good balance bitterness/sweetness. 25s

New to this neck of the woods. My label is very different. It says Maibock. Pours brilliant golden with a good head that lingers a bit. Nice lacing. Strong aromas of beer and biscuits. Nice! Medium full nectar with ample effers. Tastes like it smell with a superb hop bittering component. This truly is a masterful beer. Mild sweetness is balanced by defined grapefruit rind.

carruthm (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Super clear golden color with a tall, large bubbled collapsing head. Aroma is faintly lemony without a real hop presence. Meek taste, but a nice balance.
