COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vår Majbock är en hyllning till den starka öltraditionen i byn Einbeck. 1 maj varje år avslutades bryggarsäsongen med en festival där byns 700 bryggare gjorde upp om turordningen för att få använda den gemensamma bryggpannan. Vår Majbock bryggs som traditionen bjuder på malt, humle, jäst och vatten. Sedan får den jäsa kallt och lagras länge. Resultatet är en stark öl med utpräglat maltig karaktär av högsta kvalitet.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2008
Bottled. Bright copper colour with creamy off-white head. Clean, malty aroma with notes of (twist of sour)dough, nuts and faint hops. Elegant malty flavour profile with freshly baked malts, little grassy hops, traces of chocolate and a perfect, gentle bitterness. Suggestions of spices, whatever they are. Smooth mouthfeel, almost oily/jellyish. Great Bock!

Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 (Bottle) Pours copper-ish amber with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is malty up front with tones of, toast, bread, hay, roasted nuts, toffee and some caramel. The hop profile brings tones of grass and subtle herbs. The flavour is of bread, toast, mild caramel, nuts, hay, smooth milk chocolate fudge, grass, light herbs and light undertones of bread syrup. The mouthfeel is clean, soft, smooth, bit velvety, medium chewy and nothing less than perfect. Soft carbonation with small bubbles. The aftertaste is subtle and soft/velvety with hints of fudge/caramel, nuts and a tiny touch of hops. Medium bodied. A fantastic Bock, good job Grebbestad.

hirigalzkar (2229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2010
Bottle. The liquid is orange and looks thicker than it really is. Nice long lasting little white head. Clean malty aroma, sweet and bready. The taste is also based on a clean malt profile. Notes of honey and rotten vegtables. Small smokiness in the aftertaste. Well balanced. Smooth. A classic example of a bock beer.

355 ml bottle. Glowing dark amber colour. Small off-white head. Clear. Strong caramel nose. Caramel is slightly roasted. Surprisingly light bodied, but there is a lot of flavours. High carbonation level. Quite hoppy flavours that balances the malty flavours nicely.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - MAY 3, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2008 08/05/02: 33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. I had bigger expectations for this bock, but it’s okay. Sweet, malty beer with a pretty nice mouth feel, but it had some strange vegatable taste which reminds me of Slottskällans Decennium. (3)

08/05/14: Ah, well, I decided to buy it again, cause it’s only 15 SEK for a 33 cl bottle. Well, it was slightly better this time, even though it’s nothing special. Taste is malty with hints of caramel and some hops at the end. Easy to drink, goes down very fast. Maybe I will buy it again due to the price, but on the other hand there is so much other interesting beers. (3,2)

08/06/06: Had it again, and this time I liked it even more! Good bock, very plesant too drink. Looking forward to taste Lunator in september!
