4.2/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pilsner glass at 42 degrees

Appearance: A 1 finger frothy foamy off white head with good retention...the clarity of the beer is cloudy with some yeast and effervescent particles floating within the beer. The color of the beer is a pale yellow. Overall appearance of the beer is very good.

Nose: There is a pils hop aroma that is slightly spicy and floral. The malt is very lightly toasted and a slight yeast aroma. Some underlying aromas do exist but they are too hard for me to detect.

Taste: The hops are the dominate flavor in this beer. The aroma is spicy, perfumy, floral flavor that is clean. The malt in this beer takes a backseat to the hop profile in the beer. The malt is very lightly toasted and with a very mild flavor. The yeast is noticeable but still backseat to the beautiful hop flavor.

Mouth feel: It is carbonated, slightly spicy, and coating.

Overall: The body of the beer is light and the finish is light and crisp. I have never really been a huge fan of Bayern beers however this one is an exception! The flavors is something perfect for a hot summer day and a very good beer overall. Next time I wouldn't mind taking a ride in the Tonka truck

Served this beer from a bottle. Not very much of a head. it is a straw yellow golden that is hazy. The smell is of some malt, with hops faintly in the background. Taste is sweet, lemon, and a nice mix of hops. Being from Missoula, I drink a lot of Bayern beers, and they all have a very similar flavor. Not sure if it is the yeast they use or what but I can always pick a Bayern beer out of the pack.

This beer pours a hazy pale straw hue, with fine sediment churned up all in it, and two fingers of soapy white head, which leave a sudsy ring of lace around the glass. It smells of lightly toasted grain, mild spicy hops, and a slight alcohol warming. The taste is grainy malt, a bit of acrid citrus, soft old-world hops, and a metallic alcohol stripe. The carbonation is on the lower side, the body medium weight, a bit tacky, and it finishes dry, and warming.

Definitely on odd duck for summer time. It's a bit like the experience depicted on the label, that of a capsizing raft - I feel like I've swallowed some seawater...

So I was nervous about this beer at first mainly due to the very light color (since I am more of a darker beer fan) however in this review this surprised me threw and threw.

Color is a VERY clear almost water like with a light tint of yellow (just for fun) almost light corn color.

Smell is hard to pull out. Takes a few minutes but you then can really get the German aromas flowing. The multiple smells really surprise you and make you keep wanting to pull more from the glass. With the German malts and yeast you also get a very clean smell and nothing pungent or overwhelming.

Taste is what really got me. Going with the clean taste this is a very smooth drink. You can get flavors rolling with the full tongue full and taste the MUCH different ingredients. The Hopps are light and near the end with the yeast and malts.

Overall this is a very relaxing beer even coming from a slighter higher ABV 6% this has very little punishment for the after effects.

12oz picked up at Brewforia last night on the way home from work... poured into my Shorts Imperial Pint glass...

Thin 1" head dies very quickly.. the brew is surprisingly cloudy for a maibock... turbid straw golden. Too cloudy.. a bunch of sediment was left in the bottle.

Nose shows the expected pale maltiness, but it seems a bit lite.. maybe that's why it's called the "Summer Bock".... not much else going on.. but really there shouldn't be... pretty clean... maybe some background DMS.

Flavor is American pale malt .. again maybe some acceptable very lite DMS.. still surprisingly clean.. just the malt flavors are pretty low given the nice ABV.... there could be some background earthy hops in there, but my palate may be playing tricks on me.

body and carbonation are medium... could use a touch more discernible deeper malts.. and IMO more (a gentle touch) of hops.

Glad I got the chance to try this one without making the mammoth trip to MT..
