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.

Poured into a half-litre mug in Berlin. The (English) menu listed it as "Thomas Bock von Hacker-Pschorr," but I assume it's the same, as it's the only bock Hacker-Pschorr makes and the other reviews track with my own.

A: Unimpressive. Very clear yellow-amber with two-fingers of light head.

S: Smells nice. Sweet malty scents mingle with something grainy.

T: Thing. Mostly sweet with a tinge of bitter hops most of the through the taste. Aftertaste is smooth and light, sweetish with a bitter kick. Not bad.

M: Feels like beer.

D: Good and drinkable. Might appeal to a large variety of people. Though it's good enough, it's not a beer I'd seek out again.

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.

I had this at the Chinesischer Turm yesterday

Pours a beautiful dark straw colour with good head

Smell of honey fresh cut grass malty grains and some bitter hops

Tastes just like it with lots of added malt chracter

Beautiful carbonation one of the more drinkable beers out there

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.

I had a 0.5l glass of this vom Faß (3.60EU) while dining on a great plate of Käsespätzle at the Altes Hackerhaus in downtown München on 24Sep07. Simply referred to as Hacker Hellerbock on their menu.

Clear golden, with agressive carbo. Slightly off-white head, thick and rocky. Lasts well with great stick. Very bready nose; dry, with a touch of floral hops. Smooth tongue, and a solid medium in the body department.

Great bready malt in the flavor arena as well. Lightly sweet, with a hint of fruitiness and some smooth floral hop action bringin up the rear. Lingers well, with honeyish notes. Let it warm a touch, and the flavors are even more engaging. Nice bier! Ahhh.... there's nothing like a solid Hell/Maibock.

Prosit!!

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...
