Pours dark anber, with an aroma of huge malt and hops. Tastes fruity, malty, with hops. Finishes full-bodied, crisp, and fruity. An awesome brew. jackl (8209) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Keg @ Weeping Radish. Copper color with a tight creamy white head. Sweet marzipan and caramel toast. Relatively robust malty character. The Nutty caramel flavor isn’t helped by the presence of distinct stewed vegetable. Medium body, a touch oily. A few sips is enough.

On draft at Trio in Kill Devil Hills NC. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Malty nose. Flavors of dried apple. Light, crisp finsish. TheBeerGod (6233) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Bottle. Copper bodied. Small white head. Nose is fruity and malty and sweet smelling. Some yeast, some caramel and some candy in the nose as well. Taste is malty and sweet with yeast notes, fruit and caramel. The yeast is more pronounced than most maibocks. Body is medium with soft carbonation. The finish exudes more yeast, chewy malts and caramel while reinforcing the fruit flavors and some grains. Not bad but different than I expected.

22oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a very dark golden/light amber with a small head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and hops. Taste of malt, caramel, hops, and slight spice. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth. I am not a fan of this style but this beer is darn tasty. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Clear golden body (SRM of 9 according to my BJCP Color Guide) with a large frothy off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma with some caramel. Sweet toasty flavor with light caramel background, some graininess, and a bit of spicy hops and a mild bitter finish. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

On tap, they are currently calling it a maibock. Nice appearance, but not much head surprisingly. Not much in the way of aroma. Sweet malts rise to the front, with a slowly diminishing hop finish. Not bad, especially considering I am not at all a fan of bocks. rdixon77 (2868) - Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Old ratings. Bottle from the farm brewery. Dark amber. Nice caramel, malty richness.Smooth. Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2003
This has got to be about the best maibock I've had yet. Deep gold/red color, huge head, excellent lacing. Very smooth, creamy and flavorful body, lots of bready malt, some caramel. Finish was great - still some sweetness, but also a little hop, and - very interesting - toasted nuttiness. Lisa liked it so much, she stole half of it and made me drink the rest of her Corolla Gold.
