Poured dark amber from tap at Andy’s, Small head, sweet aroma, with a trace of yeast. There was a nice smooth hop finish. Good maibock.

From a growler thanks to MaiBockAddict. Poured darker than I expected, a murky dark amber color with a small tan head. Aroma of mild malts, fresh bread and some spices. Flavor was pretty similar but with a dry hop finish where you can finally taste the alcohol that was kept so well hidden.

on tap at the brewery, a medium yellow/bronze color with mild tan head. aroma is very yeasty and malty, with some fruit tones. flavor has alot of malts going on, with a slight cider taste on the tail end of each sip. a little bit of residual bitterness lingered in my mouth at the end of the glass. body was in the middle of the road, i enjoyed this beer thouroughly.

Boring under attenuated beer of little complexity or depth. I love maibocks and this is not a good representative example.

April 2004. In honor of MaibockAddict. Golden ale with a fruity slightly lactic aroma. Good malts and apples with aromatic alcoholic warmth. Very smooth and balanced.

on tap at blind tiger. seemed a bit weird having a maibock in a small glass but oh well. sweet, slightly tropical aroma with a little bit of anzac cookie dough. plenty of alcohol in the taste with a hint of baking soda, some stewed fruit and pleasant metallic bitter finish.

I liked this beer more than the Heartland Maibock, frankly. Less harsh alcohol taste. In fact, the Ramstein’s alcohol is virtually undetectable. Not terribly malty and somewhat innucuous, IMHO. I have no idea why it’s rated so highly, although I love Ramstein as much as the next guy. On tap at The Gate (Brooklyn).

I can’t complain too much about this beer, but I have to say, I’m not sure why exactly it’s so highly rated. It’s not as malty as some bocks, and it’s very fruity. Dates and Apples and Pears. A nice balance of tartness and sweetness. Full body, and nice mouthfeel.

On tap at The Gate. Poured a yellow golden color with a minimal head. Aroma was spice and cinammon. Taste was spice with some sweetness, some fruit, almost like cherry.

[draught] This beer is amazing! - dirty-blonde pour with medium carbonation and compact head - sweet aroma of light fruits and candy - a tiny hint of tartness up front, that fades away to a medium bodied, malty explosion of flavors - there are a lot of more "summer oriented" fruits here, strawberries in particular, but also cherries and a touch of pears - this beer is clean, yet chewy and malty at the same time - strawberries stick around in the finish for quite some time - excellent stuff - the best Ramstein I’ve had so far, and that includes the winter wheat.
