2.22.05 Tapped from wooden cask sitting on the bar at Glen Gardner’s(?) somewhere in the wilds of Northwest NJ. A really nice maibock, not completely ready just yet as of tasting but the potential seems great MolsonMan (58) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours a copper color. With a thick white head. Very tasteful, with hints of berries. Easy on the palate. The after taste leaves something to be desired though. obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2005
I like the maibock style so I’m a little bias on this, but this was a great bock beer, copper color, small off-white head, decent lacing, very sweet & malty nose, very smooth & drinkable, creamy body, sweet finish, just an all-around great maibock

Poured a nice golden color with a small head. Smell and taste is of caramel and toffee. Very nice! hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2005
On tap (actually from a keg provided by egadzis - thanks!). Poured a medium amber color with a larger sized white head. Aromas and tastes of yeast, bread, caramel, and light fruits. Very easy to drink. Alcohol content hidden.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2005 Poured a copper color with a large, lightly off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted dough, caramel malt, light hoppiness. More caramel and bread in the taste. Smooth, alcohol well covered, nice bock. This was a big hit among both beergeeks and non-beergeeks alike, at my party Saturday.

Ramstein brews this German Maibock in North Joisey. I imagine this recipe is close to what you’d sample in Bavaria. Yeasty, musty aroma, crisp hop bitterness, and spicy pepper flavors are all represented in the sample. My personal preference is for a sweeter bock than this one. beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2005
On tap at Andy’s. This ia an ok Maibock. Malty, and sweet flavors. Finishes smooth and clean. Sirjohn03 (39) - New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2005
on tap, amber in color. mild hoppy flavor, fruity tones, nice tan head, and smooth finish. barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2005
hand bottled from a growler courtesy of Lou18. tarnished copper in color. mild flavors all the way around. mild malt, spice, yeast and hops. not a lot of carbonation, which is similiar to the Winter Wheat. nice smooth and very drinkable bock. Thanks Lou!
