The Malbourne Maibock is a lager in the traditional spring or "May" bock style. The spring bock is light in color like a Helles lager, but a little higher in alcohol and emphasizes the pale malt flavors. The golden hue is clear with a distinctive Hallertauer hop nose of spice and light floral aromas. The malty body and moderate bitterness make for a thirst quenching, warm weather lager, full of character but not heavy in the mouth. Cereal grains, pale toast and a touch of malt sugar leaves one thirsting for more as outdoor temperatures rise. The Malbourne hotel was built in 1912 on the corner of Main and Roxboro streets. It was a stunning, modern hotel with 125 rooms, hot and cold water and 50 private bathrooms.

Pours a sharp and clean pale gold with one finger of creamy white head. Malt forward nose, loaf of bread. Lots of malt sweetness with notes of toasted grain and grassy hops. Very nice flavor, light bready sweetness with notes of toasted grain and a definitively spicy hop character. Gets to be sharp. Medium body with a mild showing of alcohol.
