5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Copper tinted orange, clear, thin to moderate white head, frothy, light lacing.   Mealy nose,
otherwise mild sweetened straw and hay.   Seems a little dank.   Sweet and smooth mealy hay/straw like flavors up
front.   Touch of salt in there too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit it feels a little heavier than others.
Fnishes quick, a little bit of that straw/hay lingers.   Tiz okay, but mealier and less bright than others.
But, it is Pyramid after all and not some Bavarian brewery. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Pyramid Maibock is a very lively amber lager that seems to have a slight haze. The light khaki head is solid, smooth and waxy and has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a bready, malty aroma with a hint of sweetness. It’s medium light bodied and quick on the tongue. The finish is dry and very clean. It has a nicely balanced flavor, malty but not sweet. The bitterness comes in toward the finish. It’s ample and wooden, but not resiny. There almost seems to be a hint of fruit in the aftertaste. It’s not super interesting, but it’s solid and well crafted and goes down with great ease. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Draft. Ambsr beer with a low cream head. Malt and earth aroma with light honey. Malt and light honey flavor. Medium bodied. Malt and earth lingers with light grain. Mickey42 (36) - Syracuse, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Not very impressive. There’s just not the depth I’ve had from other Bocks. Pyramid seems to be very hit or miss with me. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 8, 2012
A - Pours a fairly clear copper-orange with a finger of frothy white head . The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of caramel and bready malts with some noble hop, some lemon, and a bit of grain.
T - Starts off with some caramel and bready malts with some noble hops and a touch of bitterness. Through the middle, a bit more noble and grassy hop comes through with a bit of lemon. The finish is a mix of sweet malts with some noble hop and some grains.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Well balanced, but feels just a bit thin and could have used a touch more of a kick.

After working in the yard I needed lawn mower beer and this hit the spot. Sorry no glass for this baby. I chugged it on the spot. It’s kind of like a Genny Bock. bnoel09 (588) - Elk Grove, California, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle into a shaker. Color is burnt orange with a white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy like a lager with some caramel malt. Flavor is sweet and malty, with some graininess as well. Light bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall this was ok but forgettable. Ernest (7817) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off white, fully diminishing.
Body is light to medium amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, grain, husks, corn syrup), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of metal, butter, and DMS.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, metallic.
Wow, "bock style ale", eh? So it’s not even an actual lager, ok, ok, I’m with you so far. The vegetable brine, tin, grain husks, and diacetyl make for quite the attractive nose, so far so good! The dirty, syrupy, metallic, husky mouth experience pretty much knocks it out of the park, we’ve got a home run right here. Nice going, Pyramid, you obviously burned the candle at both ends laboring over this one. Kudos. poisoneddwarf (2646) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 20, 2012
12 oz bottle from the Spring Variety pack. Expired three days ago. Aroma is caramel malty, wet river rock, hint of wet dog, bland; floral notes come out as it warms. Pours clear copper with a thin white head. Taste is light malty sweet, a bit meaty and finishes lightly bitter. Thin body and kind of watery. Pretty dull.

12 oz. bottle- Expired three days ago, but should be still good- Pours orangeish amber with a thin soapy white head, there is sediment floating around. The aroma is generic beer and malt. The taste is better than the aroma, malt forward, but it does leave a dryness in the mouth. body is medium, carbonation is medium high. Overall I appreciate Pyramid finally trying something new, but this is very average and boring.
