On draught at Gambrinus. Absolutely transparent sparkling gold, with a billowing cloud of foam, leaving sticky lace. Very biscuity, grassy, a bit spicy like citrus zest, with an alcoholic and doughy malty profile. Sweet, but drying at the same time. Loads of biscuit malt and grassy/hay like hops bitterness with a sting of alcohol. Medium/full bodied, creamy, not an easy drinker, but an enjoyable one.

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.

Had recently on tap @ Magouns in Somerville. Found out it was just delivered the previous day & tapped a few hours prior.

Pours a beautiful bright gold into a H-P half lifer. Smells very clean & lager-ish, just a bit sweet. Taste dances on the tongue, a perfect symphony of sweet-ish malt & hops, a bit of bread & subtle caramel. So clean & refreshing, each sip begs another. Pleasant mild candy aftertaste, lacing on the glass is nice too.

What a treat to have on tap. Anxious to drink this again.

Listed as Hacker-Pschorr Mai Bock. I'm assuming it is the same.
Pours a deep, clear golden orange with a squat beige film.
Aromatic of honeyed pears, golden raisins, dinner rolls, and dried flowers.
Initiates sweet in the mouth, full of those same canned pears-in-heavy-syrup, and golden raisins from the nose, but also towing pineapple juice, and dried dates. A light breadiness provides base, but even it turns honeyed after a moment. The hop add trace amounts of peppercorn and crushed flowers, but are overridden by all things sweet that precede them.
It begins fairly rapidly carbonation, but quickly settles out and flattens. The remaining liquid is on the grabby sweet side, if not overly thick.
It's not a total loser Maibock, but it could use more grace and balance.

This exquisite and limited German brew pours a fairly light golden-amber in my Hacker-Pschorr stein. Head of carbonation is substantial and lace is lovely and detailed.

Aroma is toasty grains, with a tinge of caramel and bread. Maybe a bit of citrus in there, too. Definitely appealing.

Flavor is more of the same -- toasty bread, yeast, and caramel malts. A hint of hoppy citrus arrives just around the finish, making this a delightful and well-rounded brew. Superb and well worth finding.

Bottle is dated BBD: 08/14.

A loud pop as the seal is broken, it pours foamily into a sturdy mug, showing off a bright saturated amber gold tone. Sparse rising carbonation, long lasting dense soufflé foam resting on the surface, an inch in width.

Sweet bready aromas, bread dough and lightly grassy hops.

Taste is pleasant, malty and smooth with a good dose of grassy noble hops, more than most other Hacker Pschorr brews. Light orange and biscuit notes. Feel is smooth and supple, medium bodied and very drinkable. Lingering grassy hop aftertaste. This is a great bock, only a hint of sweetness, and well balanced with understated hop bitterness. Recommended.

On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt.

Brilliantly clear pale gold, perhaps a shade darker than their helles. Pours with an inch of head that leaves sheets of lacing behind.

Lot of malt on the nose, honey-drizzled bread and a little stonefruit. Fairly sweet with a reserved yeast character. Pleasant.

Malt heavy on the tongue, stewed peaches and honey, along with a surprising alcohol kick up front. Light bodied, actually fairly balanced and easy to drink, save for the slight booziness. Drying in the finish with a zesty hop kick that balances some of the initial sweetness. Helles bock tends to be one of my least favorite styles of German beer, but I found this fairly enjoyable - worth a try.

3.6/5  rDev -5.5%

Appearance: 4 | Smell: 3.75 | Taste: 3.5 | Mouthfeel: 3.75 | Overall: 3.5

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.

Had a pint of this at the Amsterdam Ale House in Manhattan's Upper West Side. This was the replacement for the Spaten Bock which was one of my favorite bocks so to follow up with this was a little disappointing.

Good light brown color with good carbonation. Malty bock character with a malty aroma. In general a good beer but not my favorite.

3.23/5  rDev -15.2%

500ml bottle bought from onlyfinebeer.co.uk

Poured a light golden yellow colour... Slightly off white head poured thick and foamy with tight bubbles then faded slowly to nice thin layer... sporadic carbonation bubbles drift to the surface... light sticky lacing...

Aroma - Sweet spicy malts, light biscuity notes, pretty strong fruitiness (pineapples, over ripe bananas, some lemons, apples), sugary / honey sweetness, some light corn / macro type notes, peppery hops, some vanilla notes, faint oak traces...

Taste – Sweet grainy pale malts, strong honey / syrup sweetness, spicy fruits (apples, pineapples, some light figs), definite creamed corn hints, pretty noticable alcohol, some breadiness, light spicy hops struggle to cut through the sweetness, some faint medicinal notes...

M&D - Pretty smooth.. Light / medium bodied. Couldn't drink more than one of these in a sitting due to the sweetness...

Overall - A very average bock - much too sweet... just about worth a try once...
