Brassy-bronze body has light copper hues with a golden overtone. Off-white head is well-retained, receding to partial cover, eventually, with little to no lacing. High clarity and a rush of bubbles.
Grassy, lightly spicy hops open up the aroma, with a smattering of honey drops, lightly sweetening things, as a crisp yeast wraps things up on the finish. Baked dough is dry, but not overly aromatic, keeping things light, but adding some complexity to the otherwise mainly pils-like malt tones. Not terribly sour, and not overly bready, with a medium strength and no alcohol apparency. Almost could mistake it for a golden ale, with the dominant honey malt and light, grassy hops.
Some bread mixes with water, as light farmy-hay-like minerals and grassiness add a smooth texture and some spiciness on the end. Grows a touch sourish as it warms, with the munich malt emerging more, but still finishes with a sticky, honey creaminess, fairly sweet. Medium carbonation. No alcohol apparency.
Pours copper with a white head. Smells fruity with mellow hop presence. Taste is syruppy and fruity. Much more sweet than I am used to in a maibock. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2013

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear brown/amber with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet malt (very malt dominated) and light hops. Flavor was more in the same vain...lots of malt and a sweet finish. Still, quite drinkable and nice to gulp down.

Simple and too style. Cracker and doughy malts with a fair amount of sweetness. Hops are non existent really but still not too much out of balance. Decent stuff. Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 4, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Crystal clear light gold, foamy white head. Sweet, malty nose, just a hint of floral hop. Flavor follws suit, the sweet malt leading the way. Very nice maibock. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Aroma of red fruits and big caramel malt sweetness. Flavor continues to feature huge malts with little hop balance. Very full bodied, seemingly tons of residuals. A malt bomb of a maibock. Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2007
