COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maibock is a “May Bock”, and is a paler and hoppier version of a regular bock. This Bavarian favorite celebrates the German tradition of brewing a strong, pale lager for release in early May. Complex malt flavors dominate this copper colored brew, uncommonly smooth due to a full six weeks of cold conditioning.

ROGUE (2096) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 30, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Poured a deep golden color with a small white head. Aroma of mostly sweet malts with a slight hoppy undertone. Flavor had a bitter up front hop presence that was mellowed out nicely by a sweet fruity malt base. Medium bodied with higher carbonation, that was well balanced and highly drinkable.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Draft. Pours dark straw colored with deep gold edges and off-white head. Nose is malty, hoppy, with some frutiy esters and mild honey. Tastes malty, fruity, with some tartness up front matched by a fruity ending and an overall outstanding smoothness. A good example of one of my favorite styles.

sloth (2472) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Draft @ the pub. Clear, dark gold hue. Small white head with fair retention and lace. Nose was bready and somewhat fruity, lightly grassy and spicey. Body is medium with a graininess on the palate. Lightly sweet malts balanced out by some grassy hops along with notes of grain, light bread and wort. Decently balanced finish between the malts and hops, nice bite. Not bad.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2009 Draft at Stewarts....Good brew... Light amber in color followed by an ok head. Taste was refreshing... To me it tasted like spicy raisons. Sweet...Light hops and good malty backbone. All well balanced. Nice medium texture. Overall a good brew by Stewarts!

Goodgrief (1784) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 30, 2008
May 2006 - Another enjoyable brew from Stewarts. Poured clean pale color, little head and lacing. The flavor in this was really well balanced. All the sweetness of a nice fruity bock, but lighter and with a hop balance that made this a beer I could drink all night long.
