12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 7/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep golden color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, apple, biscuit, toast, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of pear, apple, biscuit, toast, honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pear, apple, biscuit, toast, honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good maibock style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

This was a recent acquisition from the Friendly Greek Bottle Shop and since a picture exists and Maibocks seem to be on the menu this morning, this seems like a good time to get the review done and the bottle emptied. Wake up, Maggie Maibock, I got a glass to use for you!

From the bottle: "Heller Bock Lager Matt Nucci Brewdad"; "Part of the PROGENY SERIES from Blue Mountain Brewery".

Once more, the contrasting colors made the pseudo-cascade a sight to behold! Man, I could do this all day. My efforts resulted in three fingers of dense, eggshell-white head with lasting retention. Once again, the color was a deep, golden-yellow (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity and I could see into the future, where I was back at the Greek, drinking beer. In the interim, since they had never left, the Unholy Trio of Mammon, Midas and Croesus were battling for a taste. Once more, the nose had that terrific combination of biscuit malts and grassy Noble hops and now, my mouth was watering. Either my overdosing with AIPAs has left me craving something else, or that AIPA obsession is wrong-headed and I should be branching out more often. Guess what? I am sticking with my AIPAs, but I can appreciate a well-made beer in another style. Great lacing began to appear in the glass as I typed and now I was ready! Mouthfeel was full, more towards creamy then the Troegs Maibock and the sweetness was a little more pronounced ("Statistics [:] 22 IBUs 16.2 Plato"), more honey-like than bready and still with some fusel alcohol heat. I felt compelled to break out the pretzels at this point and they really went well with this beer. Finish was bone-dry and I was coming to realize that I prefer it this way. I am not into sweets as a usual thing anyway and the dryness really allows for a clean finish with a definitive grassy aftertaste.

Bought a growler fill this weekend. Great color, good aroma. Saw it in bottle in the grocery store yesterday. Perfect choice for this time of year. Planning on going back soon for the full menu at the Barrel House Brewery. This is a great area to be a beer lover.

12oz bottle obtained from the brewpub for me by coworker. Thanks Steve!

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" off-white head over the clear golden amber brew. Head falls to a thin layer of bubbles, with leggy fleeting lace. Aroma is minimal.

Taste starts sweet, which lingers a bit longer like a maibock should, peek of fruit in the middle, balancing bitterness at the close. Mouthfeel is very soft and smooth, and drinkability is way easy. Liking this one.
