STYLE NOTES

Maibock

Maibock translates to ‘May Bock’, a Bavarian springtime seasonal golden lager. It’s also called a Helles Bock. Designed as a transition beer from the rich, strong, and hearty winter beers to the lighter summertime beers – right in the middle for spring. A balanced beer with malts and hops, earthy and crisp.

Moderately to moderately strong grainy-sweet malt flavor dominates with some toasty notes and/or Maillard products providing added interest. Little to no caramel flavors. May have a light DMS flavor. Moderate to no hop flavor (spicy, herbal, floral, peppery). Moderate hop bitterness (more so in the balance than in other bocks). Clean fermentation profile. Well-attenuated, not cloying, with a moderately-dry finish that may taste of both malt and hops.
