3.78/5  rDev -3.3%

pint pour at the brewpub

look is a well filtered golden amber, small head with spotty lacing and all that jazz. smell is light and wheaty, maybe a hint of spice. taste is a good amount of Carmel malt, oak, leather, with a spicy hoppy finish.

solid.

I had this as a part of their 5oz sampler package in their bar which you get 10 of their tap beers to try.

Pours a golden amber color with average head. Had a little bit of a malt scent but not too much. Had a really good taste as the malts were nicely mixed together for a smooth, clean finish making this beer rather tasty.

A: very clean, amber-light brown color
S: very nice, not as malty as German bocks but nice sweet nose
T: roasted sweet malt with hint of alcohol, good but could use a bit more alcohol and malt (my version was 5.8% ABV)
M & D: very drinkable and clean

Cloudy dark gold in color. Little to no head. No nose that pops out and a subtle attack of malt and grains. The flavor is pretty plain and clean really. I am a little off guard as I sample this because it wasn't what I ordered, but I decided to drink and review anyway since I never had it. All in all, I find to be unremarkable, but not awful. The mouthfeel, taste, and smell are all very mainstream to me and simply average.

Reported as "Silver" at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver CO. "Uses imported Vienna Malt"

Comes to me with a white cap, dark straw in color with no cloud.

Not much in the nose, but it is cold so? Smells faintly of an english pale.

Hops up front with a small malt back. Smooth sourness which is probably the yeast. Hops are good, quite strong for what I have had in Bocks.

Mouthfeel is thin and almost watery but refreshing.

Not bad. I'm not terribly experienced with the style so I'll leave it at that.

Appearance: Great red amber color, perfect for a maibock; amazing lacing follows a 1/4 inch head. Low visibility and low/medium viscosity.

Aroma: Some metallic zing from the hops, immediately supported by hints of honey malts and orange peel. Mild golden raisin notes.

Taste: Immediately sweet, grainy malts that subside to a nicely balanced maibock finish - no real bitters and a thick middle palate that's almost entirely raw honey. A little breadiness as it warms and some subtle late bitterness that cleanses the palate and carry the faintest hint of dried basil. A little buttery yeast in the finish. Wouldn't have guessed that this is 7.5% to drink it.

Mouthfeel: A little sweet, but low carbonation makes for a clean finish.

Drinkability: A little sweet and buttery for the style, but the body and the malts are right on. Drinkable as a stand-alone or a session beer. Will please most bock fans, and has convinced me to check out more of Moosejaw's stuff.

Auburn-touched copper under a greying beige rimming.
The nose is caramelized grain. All fresh breads and toasted nuts sweeted with a sugary glaze.
Begins fully malted. Gooey caramel and drier toffee. Honeyed walnuts are prevalent. Backed with intriging and delicious hints of white-chocolate macadamia nuts. While chilled, the hops protrude farther, enabled with a lingering biter herb snap. As it near cellar temperature, the hopping is usurped by a continuation of the caramel-slathered nut breads.
Fatter than medium bodied, but not quite full bodied. Lowly carbonated and drinkable far beyond its listed strength.
A fancilful hellesbock. This solidifies my opinion on Moosejaw.

From a growler...pours a deep gold...slight chill haze....nose is spicy hops....also some vanilla...body is full...taste is sweeter malts...honey...vanilla...and then a good hit of spicy hops to balance things off....somewhat similar to the Summit Maibock but fuller bodied and a little more maltiness...the spicy hoppiness is similar to Summit...

This is a very nice maibock....very drinkable....but with some character too...

This won the silver medal in the bock category at the 2003 Great American Beer Festival....I can see why...it's legit...

From a growler...

Deep golden hue. White head with adequate retention. Aroma of deep caramel malts, light alcohol and dry hops. The taste was quite good. Big, malty body with a splash of herbal hops. The finish was just a bit dry. Body was big and full as well. Smooth mouthfeel. Quite drinkable for a sizeable beer. This could almost be considered a blond dopplebock, but may not quite have the alcoholic presence of such.
