Drank at Three Floyd’s Brewing Company during the 2007 Dark Lord Day: This was a very good beer in every way but it did not stand out in any way. A nice nose with good weight and texture in the mouth. It started nice and ended nice but nothing stood out for me. For what it’s worth, others liked this more than I did. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 7/10; Overall: 13/20
On tap at the brewery Dark Lord Weekend.
Clear gold body that supports a firm off-white head.
Big malt nose that follows it up with clean malt flavors that are delivered lightly and smoothly.
Hides it alcohol well. Well done. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2007
On tap at 3F’s. A light amber pour with no head or lace. A dry aroma of light malt. A flavor of malt slightly sweet and conservatively bittered which makes it a real pleasure to drink. A bit fizzy and a tad light on the palate. The carbonation took a little away from this brew but does not keep it from being very good.

Draught. At the brewpub. Clear amber with a small white diminishing head. Middling light roast malt aroma, cereal grain richness, mild apricot and floral hops. Tasted followed the aroma, some interesting and unexpected salty green olive tartness mixed in, otherwise it seemed pretty appropriate to the style and I liked it. Light, slick body, only mild carbonation, with a hint of astringency and a fairly quick finish. My notes say "very good Maibock" and I they compliment TF on another keep-the-hops-in-check brew.

Sample at the brewpub. The menu has it at 7% abv, and I can pretty much feel every bit of it. Alcohol taste is not a usual component of a light bock, but there it is. Dark caramel color, letting through a little bar lighting. Taste is thick with caramel, but the texture is a little thinner than you’d want from that color. Driftwood6 (214) - USA - MAY 13, 2007
On tap at 3F prewpub. Nothing particularly interesting or unique about this maibock. A little darker in color the typical maibock-- Spaten, etc. Didn’t taste quite as sweet on the palate as other examples either. Clean tasting, but nothing worth writing home about.

On tap at the Three Floyds Brewpub. Deep orange pour with a small somewhat lasting head. Smells of sweet citrus and malts with a bit of hops. Light to medium body, very smooth. Worth a try, but not their best effort. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Hmmm... I wonder why this is listed as a European Strong Lager? Sure looks like a Heller Bock, a brownish orange body with a substantial off-white head. The aroma is light, some sweet malts with a touch of caramel. Same with the flavor with the addition of some earthy, herbal bitterness to cut the sweetness. A bit watery, but quite quaffable.thebaldwizard (1207) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2007
