Pours a handsome clear orangey golden color in the Crooked Line tulip. A nice aroma of melon and caramel with some phenols. Warm, smooth, and rich. On the sweet side, but a nice edge of hoppy bitterness and some tangy flavors. Spicy and a little sharp, like tangerines with some bitterish skin. Ends on a bitter note with some hoppy aromatics. Lingering nose of citrus and some warm grain.

I'm bucking the trend on this one. It's one of the best Maibocks I've had, though it's not my favorite German style. Very drinkable and just strong enough when you want a more substantial glassful. From the six pack bought at Depot Liquor in Brownwood, Texas.

A nice Texas-brewed Maibock/Helles Bock. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a fizzy head that fades fairly fast. Smells of toasted malts, light spicy Noble hops, and a little lemon peel. More spicy hop on the tongue with a light malt backbone. Slightly bitter aftertaste. 7.5% alcohol content is well hidden. I wish it were a little sweeter since the Maibock is supposed to be a paler version of the traditional Bock. Still a great beer though.
