COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
By tradition, the first barrel of Maibock is tapped in the Hofbräuhaus in the last week of April, in time for the merry month of May. The success story of Munich’s oldest bock beer goes back as far as 1614. With its powerfully aromatic flavour and its alcoholic content of some 7.2% volume, Hofbräu Maibock marks one of the high points in the beer-lover’s calendar!

The standard. Raisin aromas backed with malty, malty toasty and dried fruit beautness ( it’s a Fucking word orright?) sensational beer to session or savour

I had this at Global Brew. Pours Amber with a off white head. Taste caramel, malt, sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (749) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 17, 2014
On tap. Aroma piuttosto intenso di caramello, malto, miele d’acacia, leggermente erbaceo, erbe officinali. Colore ramato, schiuma beige fine e poco persistente. Gusto amabile, maltato, caramello e miele sono i primi palesarsi, sul finale leggermente amara da luppolo, pochissima tostatura. Abbastanza equilibrata molto rotonda, piena, calda alcolica. Equilibrata ed armonica.

A bit of skunkiness in the nose (the beer was from a (green) bottle). Copper color. Sweet nose. Smooth caramel up front. Not very complex. A slight touch of alcohol in the finish. Comes off more as a session beer in terms of flavor and drinkability although its 7.2% ABV makes it anything but. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (6114) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
"Not bad, not bad. A bit bready and sweet. The aroma has a hint of yeasty spiciness that the flavor does not. A good example of the style, but not quite a standout. Crisp and clean...cleaner on tap it seems. Good fall beer."

Rob_D_UK (899) - Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Had a stein of this in the sunshine in the Englischer Garten in Munich. Aroma of malt sweetness and a little spicy hop. Pours a nice deep copper color with a quickly diminishing head.

maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle from Seijo Ishi store at Kuzuha Mall. Grainy, very sweet maltiness, light earthy and floral notes. Light copper color. Moderately sweet initial, gentle raisin, mild hopping in mid and final, and not much else. Thin-medium body. Light and pleasant, with a small alc. kick.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the bottle! Clear and reddish with cream colour foam. Very malty, seedy aroma, bitter, slightly sweet and warm malty taste, then more bitterness. Medium-bodied, long, bitter, grainy finish.
