Aroma is moderately malty and hoppy. Pours a large creamy off-white head with produces good lacing. Colour is medium orange. Flavour is malty, some sweetness, and light bitterness. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes with a light alcohol taste. Nothing too special. shrubber85 (11615) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle. Sweet fruity and flowery hops aroma. Cloudy orange brown color with small head. Hops flavor throughout - initially slightly sweet and flowery but finishes with a moderate bitterness. Also moderate astringency that is a hallmark for the style. Stands up to most German bocks - a fine example of the style. Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2005
I’ve been drinking this one forever, Can’t belive its not rated yet. Often picked up in the singles area of Trader joes, cheap. Not so sure of the Bock label, but a good beer anyways. Abit malty, Hopped abit, golden, smooth, well balanced, Has become a normal drinking beer for me. Great beer. heitz (7) - USA - NOV 19, 2005 does not count
This is easily my favorite every day beer. The aroma is very clean and crisp. with a good malty smell. The aroma just makes me want to drink this beer. P.S. Really cool label!! intelbrewer (4) - USA - NOV 16, 2005 does not count
Love it, my current favorite commercial beer (American anyway). Not really a beer that one can categorize, but if a bunch of Germans wanted to brew an ale for Americans, this would be the beer they come up with.
APA + Alt + Maibock = Dead Guy

I’m not sure this is really a bock. And it tastes kind of wierd.... BUT, I like wierd stuff. Light golden/hazy amber color. Thick and sweet, with a dry finish. Nothing else quite like it. The Christopher Walken of beers.

Got a Growler yesterday...very good...not as good as it was on tap but better than the bottle. Will use great Dead guy Growler to homebrew in. Poured nice/strong...good brew to watch the Celts win yesterday donbusa (13) - Jefferson, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2005
A rich, robust flavor with a pleasant after-taste. The 1/2 gallon glass "growler" or bottle is a classic and a must for any collection. A good beer but as a stout/porter lover this ranks #4 on my list of Rogue Ales. newtrip (54) - USA - NOV 9, 2005
Poured with small soapy off-white head that was mostly diminishing. Body is a hazy amber color, a little cloudy. Nose is of hops, malt and caramel. Initial flavor was lighty bitter. Finish was moderately sweet and moderatly bitter and average duration. This is a decent beer. DerWeg (1704) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2005
Extremely tasty & balanced Maibock - nutty roasty malts taste sweet and refreshing, and smooth hops favor structure over prominence. Aroma spicy and very soft/floral-hoppy. Nice dark nutty amber. Simplicity over intensity. Comparable to Creemore UrBock in its delicate flavorful balance.
