16oz can picked up at The Grapevine, labeled as Seasonal Lager Maibock douglas88 (9570) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Pours clear dark amber with a medium sized beige head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, toffee and ripe fruit. Flavors of toasted malts, grainy, toffee and nutty with a mild bitterness in the finish
Nice and tasty.
16 ounce can, just listed as maibock. Pours a dark ruby color with a small white head. A light fruity nose with some caramel. Flavorful: rich ripe fruits, strawberries, some dusty sweet malts, dark caramel and toffee. Earthy dry finish. Good. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Pounder can found at the 16th St. Albertsons... Poured into my HotD goblet... Darker than most Maibocks, but no real complaints... Close to the higher end of darkness... clear deep amber.... light tannish head sticks around for a while leaving decent spotty lacing.
Nose is also a little "dark"... IMO closer to a bigger bockbier or a lesser doppelbock... maltiness has a distinct toastiness/melanoidin quality... still very clean malt profile with barely enough hops to be perceptible.
Flavors have a nutty/dry toasty essence too... but again, very clean... surprisingly clean for a stateside bock... should probably lean more toward the pils/pale malt, but this is a fantastic jumping off point.
Body is medium with a medium carbonation... pretty much spot-on.
Picked up the 4-pack and damn happy I did... These will be enjoyed for days to come.
Tone back the darker malts and ramp up the pils malt and this will be a huge winner. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2010
Pours a dark hazy brown color. Aromas of bread, malt, and some fruit. Flavor has a touch of sweet malt and clove, I think. Overall, not to bad.
BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 6, 2008
On tap at Boise Front Door Pours out a light browish red topped with a light sand head. Aroma and tast of corn malt and a touch of fruit. Also a light hop.

Draft: Pours a chestnut brown with reddish notes. Smaller white head and light lacing. Nose is heavy on the malt with earth tones and caramel. The taste is more malt oriented with a toasty feel, earthiness, and nuts. A sweeter maltier feel overall. Not bad. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Not bad at all, Medijm bodied, with a thick malty mouthfeel and roasty, kind of on the sweet side, with some honey roasted nuttiness. This goes well with food, but I could see where it would be hard to drink alone. IndianaRed (4936) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 16, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 On Tap at the BrewPub. Nice deep redish brown with a modest light tan head. Malty, sewwt woody aroma Nice heavy feel, a bit sweet and easy on the hop bitterness. Goes down easy despite its robust body and ABV. Washed down my Chipotle Burger nicely. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2005
Deep mahogany with a thin filmy head and good lacing. Nose is full of caramel and nuts. Very sweet smelling. Light hops and raisins. Flavor is extremely sweet with a touch of roasted malts. Nutty and earthy. Thick bodied with a sickly sweet finish. As the Bückster said, more hops... BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 21, 2005
Dark maple syrup, light off-white head. Nose of rich malt and earthy hops. The flavor has a massive body with a little sweetness and alcohol presence. Nutty finish with a reinforcement of the large body. Thick drinking (chewy), I could only have a couple of these. Maybe more hops? I don’t know.
