COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sun King’ Maibock is a traditional Bavarian Spring lager. Mai literally translated means May and Bock mean a strong lager. The style has often been referred to as Oktoberfest’s Big Brother.

This delicious golden lager was crafted with German specialty malts that lend a rich biscuit character and a kiss of honey. The sweetness is balanced with spicy German Noble hops to create an incredibly drinkable beer.

2oz on tap at HopCat. Nice bigger bready bock malt up front. Some pear, white grape. Very light german hop spiciness. Moderate-plus sweet, but not at all cloying nor unpleasant. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Leaves decent sheets of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Mildly slick. Pretty solid, well-done heller bock. No gimmicks. Just solid.

Draft to taster at Sun King. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with white head that dissipates slowly. Smells of mild biscuit and honey with soft notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A nice example of the style.

Sweet with a kick. It’s crisp, some yeast, flour, bread. Light throughout with some alcohol at the finish.

Tap at New Albanian. Fruity apple aroma, very light aroma. Clear golden with a small off-white head. Sweet nondescript malt flavor, a little fruit. Overall the flavor struck me as very sugary. Medium smooth body.

shrubber85 (11666) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Draft. Light lemon, apple and malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Tart lemon/apple and sweet fructose malt flavor. Lightly bitter alcohol finish. Not bad - not great.

deyholla (12439) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2012
On tap at Haymarket. Pours a near clear deep amber brown with an off white head that begins and remains at the edges. Aromajas a strong note of sweet grains and bread with a hint of caramel. Flavor begins with bread but is mainly sweet with bread but is joined by sweet grains and caramel.

3.6
illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Draft at Yogi’s. Pours amber with an off white head. Estery aroma with some honey nuances. Medium bodied with average carbonation, and with a slight syrupiness to the texture. Flavor of bready malts, honey, and mild herbal hops with average sweetness. Solid, but not standout.

ganache (6066) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Draught at Yogi’s. Hazy orange with a lacing beige head. Tangerine and orange nose, unexpected with some floor cleaner. Taste is really fruity, tangerine forward, light body, might be the pale ale. Light body, juicy and super refreshing. Gonna have to ding this some style points, but it’s good enough.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2011
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Stopped by on our daytrip to pick up some Upland beers. Pours a crisp touch darker golden pour, light haze, decent offwhite head froths and rings, laces small but sticks around. Honey hued. Aromas are bready malts, some more substantial sweet honey, cereal grains, touches of grass and clean hops, light florals, a touch of clover. Initial is lighter bodied, a touch of sweeter malts cling, some bread, honey, and cereal grains. A touch of warming alcohol, the sweetness sustained but balanced by touches of florals, grass, clover. Small bitterness, ok body and some sticking body that makes this more vibrant, substantial beer. Some gumballs, a touch of tropical fruit. Mellow, with touches of mango, some warmth from the ABV. A brew that grew on me, bacame more complex as it warmed. A style I’m normally down on. But, I though it was interesting.
