3.9/5 rDev -1.3%
On-tap at Cork City, Hoboken, NJ
A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving patches of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge. This transitioned to delicate lacing and eventually completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet toasted malts and spicy hops are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste leans toward the malty side and has flavors of toasted malts and notes of spicy hops, the latter of which linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with some hints of smoothness. There are very faint hints of warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer tastes like an authentic German maibock. It would make for a good beer to drink on a chilly spring or fall day.

3.99/5 rDev +1%
Appearance: Deep gold, good clarity, and a white foamy head.
Smell: A toasty, complex array of malts create a beckoning and hearty bouquet.
Taste: Rich pale malts dominate, with some toasting as in the background. A bit of bitterness balances things out, but the finish is very clean.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation. Lack of alcohol warming hides the punch the ABV packs.
Overall: A tasty and excellent example of the Maibock style. Crisp and clean, but still complex for a malt-forward brew. Definitely something I would order again

4.01/5 rDev +1.5%
a: Clear, chestnut amber color. Served to me with a medium sized fluffy white head.
s: Lightly sweet biscuts, green grapes, mild leafy hops. 7.5% is not even hinted at.
t: Moderately sweet, kind of nutty, biscuity grains, some fruitiness ( grapes come to mind), light noble hop character. Again, the alcohol is very well masked.
m: Silky smooth and clean.
o: I don't know this style well enough to say if this is a good, true to style maibock or not. I just know I really liked it.

Served on tap at Pilsener Haus in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a clear golden copper in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense off-white head that reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate strength aromas of toasted, bready, and biscuity malts with a lighter presence of floral and spicy hops.
T: Similar to the smell, the beer has a moderate strength malt body made up primarily of bready malts with just a hint of sweetness. There is a lighter amount of floral and spicy hops giving it a light to moderate amount of bitterness which does not linger.
M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth with light amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: Another well made German style beer from a relatively local NJ brewery, this one is an enjoyable sipping beer and pairs very nicely with Bavarian style food. While there is a high ABV, the alcohol is well hidden and the beer is easy to drink.

I had a twelve ounce draft of this at the Amsterdam Ale House recently. I don't have very many bocks or maibocks so I'm not a real conneseur of the style but I did like this ok.
Color was a medium brown. Nice carbonation and pretty clear overall.
Aroma was somewhat complex, of course favoring the malt but pretty balanced overall.
Flavor was a little bit hot but also a nice presence of malt and even a little bit of hops.
Overall a nice beer. I'd have another.

Traditional, well-crafted Maibock from a New Jersey brewery committed to brewing authentic German Beer. Caramel colored body with good clarity, a small white head that settles fairly quickly; slippery lacing. Malty, bready aroma that’s lightly toasted; some floral hoppiness underneath. Smells simple and straightforward enough.
Tasty enough but not tremendously exciting; again there is a lightly toasted malt flavor with moderate caramel sweetness and some earthy, vaguely floral noble hops behind that. Hints of fruit and toffee. Lightly lingering sweetness in the finish. Somewhat delicate overall.
Medium bodied and carbonated; fairly crisp and refreshing. Basic, well-made lager with a bit of alcoholic punch barely detected in the aroma or taste but felt somewhat in the body after a glass or two.

3.15/5 rDev -20.3%
A - Gold\copper pour. Good lacing, and a decent white foam that settles quickly.
S - Fresh flavors of caramel malt, butterscotch, and vanilla are present.
T - Just hard to make this style exciting. While the scents are very inviting, they just don't translate to the taste. Kinda bland.
M - Easy to drink, but hard to appreciate. This would pair well with Tex-Mex or Indian food as a good change of pace, and to accentuate the malt profile.
O - Not my first choice.
