RateBeer.com -- Correct Church Brew Mad Brewer MaibockChurch Brew Mad Brewer Maibock

The Mad Brewer Maibock was the Silver Medal winner at the 1999 and 2000 Great American Beer FestivalÔ in the German Bock category. In celebration of our second silver medal in a row f or this beer, we are bringing the Mad Brewer Maibock out at an unseasonal time. A bock beer is required by German law to start at 17°Plato. For those who are interested, °Plato is a measurement of the sugar content before fermentation. It is a very malty lager beer with medium hop bitterness. A maibock is a light colored bock beer. A Maibock is very similar to a Helles/pale bock,. Maibocks we originally brewed for the coming of spring, hence the name Mai (German for May). The Mad Brewer Maibock is fairly light in color. It is similar in color to our Pipe Organ Pale Ale, but very different in character. Don't let it get you though, it's a very strong beer at about 7% alcohol. It has a very clean and malty nose. The hop bitterness is evident, but not dominant. The Mad Brewer Maibock will finish quite full and have a delicate sweetness.
