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!

BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2010
On draft at The Drafting Room, Spring House, PA. Short white foamy head that disappears quickly. Beer is clear and apricot in color. Malty aroma, mostly of grains, a little alcohol. Medium sweetness, with some lingering bitterness. Fine texture.

Zlotta (214) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 21, 2015
0,5 l bottle from local dursty, best before 3/11/2015. Crystal clear, medium amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Pleasant aroma of cane sugar, raisins, prunes and honey. Sweetish taste of cane sugar, raisins, molasses and hints of honey, followed by a medium long, balancing, slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Not very complex, but simply tasty, round and very quaffable. Nice!

WillemsUrenkel (804) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2015
0,5 l botttle. Pours out in the glass clear red golden, maybe copper, with a huge head. Smell is sweet sticky malty. Taste starts decent malty, light fruity, later grainy and increasing toasted malt, all in a smooth way. No real bitterness. Nice one.

Pours a medium frothy white head atop a copper brown body. Nose of bread and honey water. Mild notes of white wine beneath toasted malt. Good representation of the style. Bottle courtesy of Jonas. Thanks.

lello4ever (196) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
La Urbock è ottima, in linea con la Eggenberg Urbock come sapore, colore ambra scuro tendente al rosso, molto forte il gusto di malto e un pelo speziata, finale leggermente secco.
