COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tradition of the Maibock beer began in the 14th century in Einbeck, Germany. This bock beer style was so popular the brewmaster was lured away by the Bavarians to replicate the style. Gordon Biersch Maibock is rich and full-bodied, emphasizing dark roasted, caramelized Munich malt and brewed in accordance to the German Purity Law of 1516.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2008
Orangish amber color with a nice creamy head. Aroma is carmel malt. Flavor is a fair amount of sweetish carmel malt with a moderately bitter hop presence. The hoppiness and malt dont balance well, each comes off as harsh, even though not overly strong. A fair bit of yeastiness and undertones of roasted nuts.
