Pours a light, soapy-white head. An excellent, grainy hop aroma. Golden, crystal clear color. Starts with a assertive, dry hoppiness. A welling of malt, slight sweetness. Then more extremely dry, grainy hop bitterness (medium-low). Toasted malt starts to come back through into the finish, lingering over grainy hops. Crisp, smooth mouthfeel.

This is very nice. I like the more assertive graininess of the hops, and I love the aroma (easily the best smelling light bock I've had). A good backing of malt to counter it, too.

Binny's - Willowbrook

A bright golden liquid pours from the glass and shines like pure gold. Orange hues run the sides of the glass A touch of haze infiltrates the body while a pillowy white foam nearly pours from the stein. The head is tightly bubbled, has strong staying power, and sticks in big clumps along the glass.

There's a nice floral hoppiness right off the bat, before even the maltiness hits. The malt picks up, cereal grains first, freshly cracked barley shortly behind, and white bread shortly thereafter. There is what seems like hard water minerality and a spiciness on the backend. Very inviting and comforting.

I have to say, the flavor pretty much mirrors the aroma. The cereal grain sweetness is a little more pronounced but not by much and the spiciness is a little more robust but those are really the only differences and they are minor. The spiciness lingers after each drink and I can welcome that.

The finish dries up quickly leaving behind a floral and spice bitterness that balances the soft grainy sweetness well. The body weighs in around moderate with an active carbonation that adds silkiness and speed. Drinkability is off the charts high.

Hacker-Pschorr did a nice job with Hubertus Bock. It's dry with great balance between sweet and bitter, the finish lingering bitter actually, and the drinkability is sky high. I would purchase this again and, if you like maibocks, recommend you do the same.

Best before 8/2014.

Pours a clear light golden-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, fruit, and toffee aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, fruit, and toffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Swing-top. Pours a pale, bright gold. Very good clarity, which is super important to me. Small to medium white head. Fades rather quickly, leaving just a bit of lacing. Aroma has some rich pilsner malt sweetness, mild grassy hops and some mineral character. Little bit of apple cider. Pears, very light lemons, mild floral note. It's a clean bock with a bit more sweetness than appley sweetness than expected. The taste has more of the same sweet pilsner malt flavor with that sweet apple note. It finishes drier than I would have guessed based on the aroma. Simple sugar. Mild grass hops, again. Mild bitterness in the finish, which could stand to be a bit cleaner. Sweet and simple breadiness. Relatively low carbonation. Round mouthfeel, almost a bit much given the lack of complexity. Fun to see a one-off from Paulaner in the US, but it's still just a decent bock. I can't complain. I'd love to see more German specials around.

A: Pours a light amber with a small amount of light white head. Not much retains, leaving minimal lacing.

S: Medium malty sweetness, with a grainy note.

T: Medium sweetness again. It's not a unique or flashy flavor, but it's good, and well made.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall, a solidly executed maibock. It's nothing too out there, but it's good, and that's all it's trying to be.

we so rarely get these seasonal and special german releases here in the states, especially in colorado, so its real nice to have something like this. even though the beer isnt supreme itself, the experience of drinking it always is from a brewery like this. the color is crystal clear bright golden. visible and aggressive carbonation amassing a sudsy bone white head that sticks around. the nose is sweet, odd for a long and cold fermented lager, but the grain sweetness remains. true in flavor too, oddly sweet for the style, but there arent enough blonde bocks around, so i appreciate this uncommon mix of pale grain and lager yeast, good and sturdy too. lots of body for the style, and well hidden but certainly detectable in buzz alcohol content. not as decisively german as the other stuff these guys make, less intense grains really, but a well made beer. doesnt get here quite as fresh as i wish it did, i think its probably insanely good over where its made, but here there is a slight staleness that hangs over it, lowering it to lower quality beer status. i can see through that though, and like this one a lot. glad i got to have it, and hope to have more of the limited german beers, its a category we just dont get enough of.

A traditional German maibock can be hard to find,it's great to see this Hacker-Pschorr offering here in my area.Pours into a 1/2 liter stein a full rich golden with a full white crown that never really fully settles.Aromas are on the cleaner side with a bit of toasted pilsner malts and a bit of iron.Smooth as all get out...wow that goes down easy,a medium feel with light carbonation.Mildly sweet with a little honey and sweet dough on the palate,a drying light spiciness in the finish.A damn fine pale bock,not overly sweet and alcoholic and pretty balanced for the style.

Probably my 4th bottle of this beer since it came out this spring. Yes, I think I like it.

Flip-top brown .5 liter bottle with ABV and dating very clear; 6.8 and best by 08/14.

A -- Clear, rich gold with a dense white head.

S -- Mildly spicy hops and bready malts make up the aroma with some light honey notes and mild fusel. Not big and bold, but very pleasant and appetizing.

T -- A blend of spicy hops and peppery alcohol hit the palate first, blending into lush, sweetish bready malts. Finish is a character of bread with honey and mildly bitter to spicy hops and peppery alcohol lingering through the aftertaste.

M -- Mouthfeel is soft throughout with a dry finish and a light-medium body.

O -- This is a very nice example of a Maibock from one of the old masters. It's rich and flavorful without needing to yell at you that you're drinking beer.
