COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maibocks are a traditional Teutonic seasonal specialty. We brew ours to be hugely malty and subtly finished with a variety of continental hops, with an eye-pleasing russet brown color.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2010

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2010
Tap at Pony Bar. Pours hazy gold with a medium, pure white head. Lots of light, sweet malts on the nose, some hints of fruitiness. Flavor is immensely sweet and malty. Also has more fruit, citrus notes. Very mild bitterness. Medium in body, well carbonated, a bit syrupy. Not too bad, but super sugary.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 10, 2010
A: A very nice looking pour on this one. A vibrant orange color with a fluffy white head and some mild lacing. S: There is a nice bready malt character to the beer up front along with a light floral hoppiness. A bit of citrus and herbs as well. T: A surprising sweetness to the flavor with plenty of caramel, bread, and maybe a bit of floral honey. Light citrus and even more floral character. M: This seems to be right in the middle of the road in terms of body with plentiful carbonation. D: Definitely on the bigger end of the maibock spectrum (but I suppose that’s to be expected from a beer in the "Big Beer Series"). That said, a good beer, but nothing overly exciting.
