Poured from a green 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bready malts. Taste is malts, biscuits, some sweetness, alcohol is present as well, just a touch of hops.Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.60):
Clear, red tinged amber with a large, foamy white head & dome shaped head about 5cm tall with little movement and some lacing.

Quite lager like initially, albeit a slightly stronger smelling with some solid malts and hints of sweetness. There is some background fruit & a pleasant freshness to the beer with some subtle grassy hops and very faint hints of alcohol too.

Malty taste combined with some sweetness & spice. Clean & fresh with some bitterness towards the end but in truth this is minimal. Grassy hops feature from about the middle on & are fairly subtle with the balanced malt taste dominating.

Clean, well balanced & full bodied beer with quite light carbonation & bitter aftertaste. The beer is smooth & goes down very easily.

Quite an enjoyable one from Hofbräuhaus despite the fact that there wasn't exactly a whole lot going on with this one other than the balance malts throughout. The beers most appealing aspects were the full bodied and smooth taste as well as how easy it was to sip away at.

4.4/5  rDev +13.4%

Poured from bottle into German dimple beer mug

A: Pours a rich amber-orange -- caramel like -- color with a creamy white head that
is about 3 inches wide but slowly dissipates to a cap. Some light lacing around glass. Beer is very clear and looks pleasant in the glass

S: A whiff of caramel/malt sweetness. Not much else going on, but very nice

T: A delicious, crisp, clean malt/caramel taste with a lingering bitterness on the finish.
A bit of toasty/biscuity notes. Tasty

M: Medium mouthfeel, pleasant carbonation

O: This is an excellent beer. I would definitely buy it again. In fact, I had 3 of these today :-) I can't comment on the how this fits the Maibock style -- I am familiar with
the darker bock/doppelbock styles but this is the first maibock I've had. Without knowing the style, I can just say that I enjoyed this one a lot.

3.49/5  rDev -10.1%

Pours a fairly clear medium golden brown with a modest ivory head that lingers as a thin layer of foam.

Aroma is floral and lightly nutty, with a mineral quality. Flavor reveals more mineral and earthy hops, with a touch of toasted malt and a slightly sour note with a bitter finish. Expected much more malt character. The sour taste is offputting.
