On Tap @ Redbones. This brew has an amazing lace, thin but simply amazing and seems to stick just about everywhere. Bright tawny golden hue. Quite aromatic with an herbal hop presences and a double sweetness of alcohol and malt. Very clean palate with a bite from the hops as well as the alcohol, malt holds a solid medium bodied base and is sturdy enough to keep things in balance. Real easy to drink and went very well with the jerk beef sandwich.

partly cloudy dark copper color, pours a rocky head which disappears quickly. soft euro aroma of malt and hops. taste is exquisite! sweet caramel and doughy malts with a lemony/honey background on a solid malt backbone. slick and creamy mouthfeel. you don't notice the alcohol until.....well... you know that warming feeling! thanks to ADR for steering me towards this for a compare/contrast lesson in maibocks.

Bier #99.... almost there...!! A pleasant bock from Deutschland... This Maibock has a copper color and a small white head which leaves a decent amount of lace... Nice combo of sweetness and a hint of hops in the nose. Same flavorfull combo in it's taste... toasty/bready malt start, some fruitiness, then finishing with a bit of floral hops, and a little dryness. Medium body and smoothness... Good bier and very drinkable, though I think it displays a bit more fruitiness instead of sweetness than desired. Just the same, Prosit!!

This beer really suprised me.Clear to amberish in color.Not to much of a nose,but when you get it in your mouth you know they use alot of malts and very little hops when making this lager.

Back in '89, my brother brought me a bottle of this from his chemistry dept. advisor (a guy at the U. of Washington originally from Germany)...this and Watney's Red on tap (since then the Red has gone down, in my estimation) finally pulled me from the world of MGDs, Iron City's etc. into the world of beer worth drinking.

So I grabbed an individual bottle again last summer and "tapped" it...what a wonderful malty aroma and palate to this Spring Bock. Its got a "spring-like" flavor too, like the soil and the greens hitting your nose. While I'm an avowed ale guy for the most part, this brought back the memories and the reminders to keep tasting 'em all...

Presentation: 11.2oz green Euro bottle with green labels and neck foil. Freshness scored clearly and this particular bottle keeps until Nov 2001.

Appearance: Clear amber with a white lace that froths at the edges of the glass.

Smell: Notes of grain, malt sweetness, and the slightest hint of sulfurs and alcohol in the nose all mix with a perfumy hop aroma.

Taste: Sweet, chewy, big malt mouthfeel up-front -- there is some big ass malt in this bock! After the residual sugars dissipate a semi-corn-like flavour mixes with a note of butteriness, both of which carry the sweetness as it coats your mouth. The 6.5% alcohol level kicks in with ethanol flavour that is amplified by the distinctness of German hops. The beer finishes a bit sweet, with a corn-vodka flavour.

Notes: This is a big bock. Try it cold. As it warms, it tends to bring out characteristics that most people may not find enjoyable (in general, the warmer a beer gets, the more pronounced the natural flavours become).
