330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Very clean in flavor as well with very low yeast ester presence. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice maibock style. All around great robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

It pours a clear 24K gold with a 1 finger head of foam. As the foam shrinks slowly, there's plenty of lacing sticking to my glass.

The smell is awesome. Roasty grainy malt at its best. Some caramel adds to the malty fun.

The taste is true to the smell though there's a touch more sweetness than I feel comfortable with. But a Bock is supposed to be on the sweet side, Bill. It's part of the style profile.

Nice mouthfeel, but for me, a slower drinker. I have to say, overall, this is a nice drop of Mai Bock.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a medium to dark bronze amber with a healthy three finger ligth khaki head with great retention and pillowy lacing. Full aroma of bready and caramel malt, light grassy hops and hint of skunk. Flavor follow aroma, rich caramel and bready malt with syrupy toffee and earthy, grassy hops. Medium bodied with a pleasant creaminess. A full bodied maibock with lots of good, sweet malt flavor and a good touch of hops in the finish. There are hints of skunkiness and a touch of oxidation; this green bottle may have been sitting around a while before sale, but still very tasty and satisfying. Looks and tastes good, I will watch for this again.
