Gold Award Winner! 2012 World Beer Cup
This quaint looking beer is very strong! Consider yourself warned. Yes, this German style bock is golden and bright, not dark. Mai means May and well, Bock means goat, but that’s another story. May means Spring and after a long winter of drinking dark beers, Germans were ready for a bright golden beer to celebrate spring. And that’s where babies come from. ABV at some point from 6.3% to 7.5%.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours a mostly translucent golden with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of Cheerios, fresh cut grass...aroma is light. Flavor of Cheerios, oats, light citrus. Realizing its hard to describe a maibock. All I know for sure is this one is well done.

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Pours rich super clear golden color with little white head. Smells minimally of sweet grain. Traditional flavors of earthy musty grain with a simple bread like quality with just a touch of golden fruits. Clean crisp slightly dry aftertaste, very easy to drink and solid overall.
