on the front-left label:

“When you’ve had enough, you’ve had enough. But it may take more than one of these maibocks to feel that way. Traditional German ingredients, and made in the traditional way, with long maturation, this beer is sure to bring you back for more.”


  • Style: Maibock / Helles Bock
  • Taste: Toasty malty sweet crisp slick smooth mild nutty
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados:

Visual: Pours bright orange amber without much head, thin ringed retention, very slow micro bubble streams.

Nose: medium-thick malted barley. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: half-slick/bright crisp, micro fizzy

Mid-palate: (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) liquid sweet toasted barley malt, caramel, alcohol tangy-bitterness

Finish: grassy bitter hops, mild nuttiness, malty sweet finish.

Summary: Mostly malty, quite sweet with some nuttiness. Mouthfeel is decent, too much alcohol detection for just a 5%er, forgettable.
