A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts and grassy/herbal hops are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has flavors of grassy and herbal hops along with underlying notes of bready malts; a faint amount of alcohol is also perceptible. The hops contribute a slight amount of bitterness, but mostly negate any traces of malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. Ever so slight bits of warming from the alcohol are perceptible.
O: I thought this beer was relatively easy to drink compared to other beers in the style because it was lighter in body and hid its alcohol very well. This would make for a good beer to drink outside on a mild springtime day as the alcohol will warm you up a bit.

Stopped by Appalachian Brewing Co. While on a business trip to see a vendor in Harrisburg, PA. Excellent beer, excellent service, need I say more? I love to try local beers while I'm traveling. Awesome place, will definitely visit again next time I'm in town. Food isn't so bad as we

I stopped into the Harrisburg ABC location on 31JAN14 for dinner. Lead off with a pint of the Maibock.

My shaker glass contained a clear, medium-copper/golden brew. Had steady carbo, and a thin, wispy white head. Lacing was very nice, also. The nose was a bit mild, but did have some good bready notes. As for the body, it was medium, and had a medium feel with minimal prickle on the tongue.

Flavor was quite bready, with just the right level of subtle sweetness. Had some leanings towards cookie dough as well. The end came through solidly with lovely floral action. Rather enjoyed this, along with my quessadilla. Prosit!

22 oz. bomber that I poured into a small tulip style glass several times. Liquid comes out a golden orange color, glows extra orange when held up to the light. Nice frothy white head with mostly small bubbles. Decent lacing to this beer too.

Smell is really good. Smells of honey and maybe some weak caramel. There's also a slight earthy and floral hope aroma that is quite pleasant. Almost smells a little like a bitter while maintaining a solid classic Maibock aroma.

Taste is also very good, on par with the smell. Starts with some nice caramel sweetness. Very bready with hints of honey. There's also some grassy hop flavors to help balance it at the end. Still don't be fooled, the strong malt backbone makes this beer great, and it is great, not just good in my opinion.

Mouthfeel is good, sort of a heavy medium body. Very smooth and maintains a nice carbonation level. Really well balanced throughout, nice sweet start with a sharp clean finish. Very drinkable, anybody who likes this style could easily polish off a bomber by themselves. GOod beer, feel lucky to have been able to get a nice bottle.

A deep golden color with a fast fading head.Carbonation is quite gentile in this uber clear brew.
Aroma is malty basically with a sutle alcohol nose.
Tastes pretty sweet but also is quite dry and tart. It's a bock so most of the taste is going to be malty and that is the case here, quite malty. Hints of toasted malts like in a Vienna style are present too. At 7.2 % , the alcohol has a considerable presence and is quite warming.
Drinks thin and dry.
Bocks for me fall just below wheat beers though this was pretty good I probably won't buy it again.
