Viggo shared this one. thanks eric!

750ml bottle, corked and caged. sampled march 25/2010.

pours crystal clear bright yellow with a big white head. the head drops slowly and leaves a nice pattern of lace.

aroma is nice. caramel and butterscotch. light alcohol. white bread and cracker. bit of grain. touch of biscuit. nice light bock character. touch of honey.

taste is nice. caramel and light butterscotch. bit of alcohol. white bread and cracker. bit of biscuit. touch of honey. light bock character. low bitterness level. light spicy herbal character.

mouthfeel is good. just over medium body and slightly above medium carbonation level.

drinkability is pretty good. the alcohol is a little too present, especially as it warms, but otherwise fairly well balanced. a nice bock.

750 ml corked and caged bottle, grabbed from Atwater.

Pours a clear light golden, some amber highlights, medium sized white head forms and settles down to a thin ring around the glass, some lace sheets stick, decent retention.

Smell is neat, very perfumy, pretty big malt character, lots of caramel and honey, on the sweet side, lightly grainy, alcohol, some breadiness, biscuit, very clean aroma, some apricot, nice.

Taste is similar, sweet up front, sugary almost, some honey, light roasted barley, grainy notes through the middle, a bit sharp and acidic, toasty, a bit sugary in the finish, pretty boozy going down but I dig it.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Some warmth going down but pretty clean. Maybe not very standard but a tasty and drinkable beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Very clear, pale gold in colour with a 3 finger white head that is loose and light looking but still has some retention to it. Lots of lacing, plenty of visible carbonation, looks like it could be in a commercial.

At once a sweet grainy aroma and a slightly sharp citric smell hit the nose. Second smell becomes more flowery, but still retains an underlying malt sweetness.

Very strong sweetness to taste, probably the sweetest maibock I've ever sampled. Almost a syrupy corn impression. The hops that were notable to the nose don't seem to be able to stand up to the malt and alcohol, leaving the finish dominated by a liquor heat.

Body is full for a lager, and carbonation comes across as leaning towards the softer side. Mouthfeel is fine for a big lager, but I would prefer it to be just a bit lighter for this style.

This is the second time I've had this beer, and the first time I was very impressed. The first time I had this after the Baltic Porter, so my perception of the booziness was likely dulled. On its own I find this one to suffer a little from trying to be too big for the style.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

A- Pours a very clear yellow with a little over a fingers width of head. Moderate lacing.

S- Floral hops and alcohol are the first thing that hits the nose. There's a sweetness quality from the malt and perhaps some light fruit.

T- Lots of cereal malts in this one. Herbal hops and some honey as well. Very Sweet. I enjoyed the initial taste, but the finish turns really sharp from the alcohol.

M- Mouthfeel is nice. Medium body with a good amount of carbonation. A little sticky.

D- There's no way I could have another. I find it to be just a bit to sweet and to boozy, it just seems out of balance.

Part 1 of the Trois Mousquetaires gift pack, with two nice eponymous chalices for all my Belgian/Quebecois beer-drinking needs...

This beer pours a clear medium golden yellow colour, with three fingers of thin puffy white head, which leaves a pretty consistent wall of lace as it falls away. It smells of sweet floral white cracker grains, and a bit of sugary alcohol. The taste is cereal malt, herbal hops, and a fairly strong alcohol edge. The carbonation is moderate, the body fairly heavy, a bit oily, and warm, and it finishes with an alcoholic cereal flourish.

This was quite the eye-opener after the Dead Guy Ale, the commonality in category a bit hard to see. The alcohol pretty much overwhelms the decent cereal and herbal hoppiness of this offering.

3.38/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Yellow, fully translucent with pure white, creamy, lasting head.

S: Lots of cereal like smell. Some malty sweetness: honey mostly. Floral hops and some citrus peel.

T: Very cereal focused. Lots of barley and corn. A little bit of honey and maybe maple syrup. Some herbal/grassy hops. A hint of citrus. A bit funky.

M: Quite big actually. Mid to low carbonation.

D: Not that easy to drink. The alcohol is quite present and its big nature doesn't help too.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml bottle corked and caged poured into matching glass from the gift pack paired with the Baltic Porter, downed nov29 2009

A light yellow with a fast falling large head that left little lace

S as the bottle says lots of cereal's but unlike whats written on the bottle I get some honey and citrus

T a little more focused on a mild sweetness and some hops then what I got from the nose

M decent carbonation makes it feel a little thicker then it is

D for 8% it's very easy to drink, however I doubt I will drink this again because it's hard too find and way overpriced in the gift pack (unless the Baltic Porter is crazy good)

you can only get this in the gift pack in Alberta and to be honest I don't really like Maibock but this is a pretty good one

I don't have much experience with maibocks, but this is a interesting style.

Pour light yellow, nice head and very good carbonation. Good lacing also in glass.

Aroma : Hints of corn pear and malted barley, quite literally. Very grainy taste with a sweeter finish. Lots of malt and alcohol in the aftertaste.

Interesting lager, not a light beer, but quite welcome on a Friday night.
