Great beer, drink a good beer in barcelona. Balance, just the right quality of alcohol. A great way to share conversation with a good beer.

From the 750 ml bottle in a snifter. This nice maibock pours a clear golden
color with a fantastic head of white foam that settles to a thick layer with nice
lacing. Nose of honey, grains, and subtle herbal hops. Flavors follow the nose
with honey and light cereal grains tossed into a medium bitter herbal hop salad
and strong grain alcohol notes. Mouth feel is medium with a warming note (odd
for such a low ABV brew) and moderately carbonated. Reminds me way too much
of many Russian brews I have had.....bold malt and moderate hop with little in the
middle. Overall a decent brew but I would not seek it out again although I do enjoy other
better brewed brews from this brewery.

Cheers

Admittedly, I've never had a German variation of maibock so I'll just have to give my impression of this beer on its own merit. Aroma is fairly typical as it gives off a honey/grainy scent. It has a light amber color accompanied with a generous foam. The taste can be described as lightly bitter and hoppy with even lighter detection of honey feel/flavor. I liked it overall.

On-draught @ Chinaski Lavapies in Madrid. Cost was 4 euro/half pint.

A bit sweet for a maibock, with a taste of honey and helles malts. Plant-like bitterness balances it a bit in the second act.

Smooth, wet, medium-bodied, unrefreshing.

A drinkable albeit forgettable expression of the style.

Got this as part of my Rare Beer Club, one of the few non sour barf inducing beers. Excellent beer IMO. Very drinkable. I'd buy it if it were on the Spec's shelves.

I bought one 375-ml bottle at a liquor store in Montreal called Le bièrologue. The beer was bottled on July 29, 2015 and it can be held for 12 months according to the microbrewery behind this.

Look: The body has the pale colour of honey and is unfiltered. The beer initially produces a two-finger head, but it dies by the time you smell it.

Smell: The malt is hardly discernible. However, the alcoholic warmth, though not overwhelming, is the most dominant aroma. The sharp notes of hops could also be smelled.

Flavour: Although I would not expect a Maibock to be sweet, this beer has brief notes of honey. True to the style, this beer is more bitter than kellerbiers, helles lagers or any other types of lagers. Despite its high ABV, which checks in at 6.8%, you would barely feel the taste of alcohol. All in all, expect a grainy taste.

Feel: The beer feels warm because of the high ABV. Yet, it is a little juicy and refreshing. The finish is pretty smooth in that the flavour disappears more or less. There is no astringency nor harshness. The aftertaste has a small alcoholic warmth.

Overall: Although there is room for improvement, this beer's flavour and mouthfeel brilliantly walks the fine line between being refreshing and hoppy at the same time.

Pours to give a crystal clear tawny-cognac body with a large head reminiscent of sea foam. The scent consists largely of sweet fruits and raisins with a large dose of caramel, making my sweet tooth ache already. The taste is again rather sweet, though in more of a dull sense even when compared to raisins. No malt is detectable on the tongue though there is a prominent noble hop taste, which is still overshadowed by the sweetness. The feel is very smooth, with mild carbonation. Overall its pretty good, though I'm not sure the style is for me.

Veiled deep gold with a very strong amount of activity. Thick light frothy white 3 finger sparkling head that last for around 10 minutes, with a good amount of legs.

Aromas of faint flowers with some caramel and a yeasty feel. Flavors of tropical fruits like pineapples with some estery feel of apples, a nice thick grainy taste and a faint grassy touch. Highly sharp with balanced sweetness.

Smooth oily full body with a perfect amount of zesty carbonation. Light finish of medium length, ending with a malty and yeasty sensation. Lingering grassy noble spices and honey like tongue coat.

Overall great quality craft. Delicious tender flavors yet warming and filling. Nicely balanced, complex, and ultra fresh. Well spiced and perfectly sharp with a pleasant body. The only real flaw is a faint smell. Very satisfying beer, I highly recommended; Would drink this all day long.

Poured from a 750 cork and cage bottle into a pilsner glass.

Color is slightly hazy straw with a enormous fluffy white head. Good retention and some semi-sticky lacing. Smell is sweet bread dough with some bright fruit esters and a slight hint of citrus. Flavor is sweet grainy malts on the palate with a mild grassy bitterness at the finish. Body is light/medium with a lot of carbonation. Very drinkable. Overall, it's a clean, crisp beer that is clearly well made. Just a little too sweet for my personal tastes though.
