This is an excellent maibock.

Deep brass, it has a medium off-white head soon thinning to thin lasting foamy top.

Aroma is lots of grain and bread, herb, raisin, wet grass.

Taste is creamy bread dough and grain, caramelised raisiny sweetness with herbal grassy bitterness to balance. The feel is creamy yet lively. It has a nice log finish with lingering aftertaste of all the elements married nicely.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 500mL swing-top bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with just a tiny touch of haze and a light effervescence. Head pours two or three fingers of frothy white foam, retention is quite good. I like it.

Smell: sweet and malty with a light orchardy fruitiness; highly appropriate to the style and quite well-done.

Taste: sweet with a bit of a cidery character and a little maltiness. The flavor isn't quite as clean and enticing as the aroma, but it's not bad.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: not a bad beer; if the flavor were a bit more like the aroma, though, I think I'd like it a lot better.

500ml bottle - $4.48 at Sherlock's in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, bubbly, golden-hued body with a thin sliver of orange to it. Smallish, near-white head.

Smell: Subtly bready, a little sweetish spiced honey tone edged with notes of apple and sulphur.

Taste: Lightly bready, grainy malts conjoined with a modest tanginess and honeyed sweetness. Touch of dried, astringent herb and crisp appleskin. Very, very low accent from the warming alcohol. Semi-dry, soft finish with a slight, lasting sulphury accent on the back half.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A fairly tidy, sufficient bock.

500 ml "Limited Edition" bottle consumed near BB date on bottle.
Tastes like a cross between a strong Marzen and a typical Euro-bock. Alcohol is not at all hidden. Lingering bready aftertaste with less hops than expected given the ample hop load earlier on.

Fancy bottle...reasonable price. Aroma had a very pungent "beer" smell...quite pleasing...but no indication
of bock style malt aroma. Poured a small head....lighter in color...a good bite. The hops are a little more
distinctive than a typical bock...not at all overbearing...probably just about right for a maibock.
Tasted like a full bodied lager that had been mixed with a little German style bock. Not bad at all...
but then again, not really a full flavored bock.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy bright white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface along with lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of bready malts are present in the nose along with hints of spicy hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and starts with flavors of bready malts underscored with notes of spicy hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little clean on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very drinkable compared to other beers in the style but seems to be a little lighter in body compared to other maibocks.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Purchased for $3.29 (likely on sale) in Oklahoma City. Came in a nice bottle with the ceramic swing opener.

Pours a gleaming crystal clear gold liquid with a generous white head that leaves belgian lace on the glass. Excellent slightly malty/bready/grassy aroma.

Flavor is very well balanced. Some rich malty notes but also some hops. A tiny bit of caramel and some spices. Lots of grain.

Medium-full mouthfeel. Lingering balanced aftertaste.

I like this beer. I wish I bought more than one!

Pale yellow with a fizzy, near-white froth. Grain, green grass, hint of lemon and orange to the nose. More flavorful than the aroma would lead you to believe with apple, sugar, grain, and cracker, followed by a subtle hop finish. Light to Medium and interesting for a moment, but mostly forgettable, which might be a testament to the par excellence in good beer these days than to the mediocrity of the beer itself.
