2.61/5 rDev -31%
Appearance: Amber color, light brown head.
Aroma: Bold malty aroma, infused with fruit.
Flavor: Bold malty, apple and raisin flavor, with a bitter, hoppy finish. A full bold bodied beer.
Overall: This beer was somewhat disappointing. First of all, this beer gave off a stale fruit aroma and flavor. It drinks somewhat harsh, with a unpleasant hoppy/bitter finish. Seeing that Maibocks are seasonal, the year-round hybrid missed the mark.

A dark yellow, nearly amber brew that's bright in spite of a slight haze, this beer's head is just short of a full finger tall and lacing is surprisingly sticky and abundant considering it isn't particularly thick or heavy; there's just lots and lots of spotting almost everywhere.
There's lots of bread, a bit of dryness almost getting toward crackery but kept from it by the doughier quality. There's plenty of caramel malt for support, and hops come in with some floral and more earthy than grassy notes. The sweetness in the aroma is a little off with the grainy edge to it, but only slightly at the front. Otherwise, it finishes with a lighter, more honey-like sweetness before some alcohol wafts out along with an expected lightly sulfuric note. The honey is also on the tongue, while the sulfur integrates into the overall profile and the alcohol lies underneath but mostly in the finish.
Starting off sweeter, this light to medium-bodied beer has a light crispness but is quite creamy, and into the finish develops a light dryness to carry it through.

Einbecker Mai-Ur-Bock has a thin, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, old-gold appearance, and just a film of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet bread, but the smell is not strong. Taste is strong, however, and one gets sweet, syrupy malt, some alcohol, rich, medium-roasted bread crust, a hefty hop bitterness, and cloyingness, to an extent. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and Einbecker Mai-Ur-Bock finishes semi-dry, sweet, rich, and relatively easy drinking. Overall, this is a delicious beer. RJT

Poured into a mug. Pours amber red with a small white head. Smells of sweet grain with a tad of earthy hops. Tastes of caramel and nice dark roasted grain. Beer is light/medium body carbonated correctly and goes down great. Overall an above average beer.

Purchased from Total Wine & More - Virginia Beach
Appearance - Pours to a clear straw yellow with a light carbonation.
Smell - Floral hops with a bit of 'skunk' smell (I personally enjoy this quality in a beer.) Tangy, ripe scent.
Taste - Semi-bitter, vegetal hops hit your mouth at first, balanced with a flirty sweetness on the front of the tongue...this quickly dissapates to a light, bready flavour that has a nice springy quality. The aftertaste is mid-tongue bitterness with warm, very slightly barley-infused notes. The sweet, green aftertaste hangs around for a long while.
Mouthfeel: Not a lot of carbonation sting here...the hops fool your mouth into thinking it's bubbly. The flavors stick to the center of your tongue for a good while.
Overall: A pleasant, deceptively strong German bock-style beer, that will entertain the palates of seasoned beer fans and hobbyists alike. Give it a go!
