Early German monks created “bock” beer as a hearty beverage that would help sustain them during their Lenten fasts. The first bock beers were dark, but soon came “blonder” styles such as maibock. Maibocks have a rich, malty, full flavor. And, since our first brewhouse was from Heimertingen in Bavaria, we’ve honored that heritage by giving the name to our first lager beer.“Bock,” by the way, is German for “male goat.” It doesn’t make sense to us either.

A malty, pale beer with mild hop flavors. A little on the bitter-sweet side. I think this is a great beer to enjoy, but frankly, I wouldn’t recommend more than two in a sitting.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Floral hops and cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more grain.

Light but well-balanced grassy hops and caramel malt. Sneaks the alcohol in there under the radar.

Tap at Liffey. Medium yellow with medium white lacing. Grainy, corn flakes, yeasty biscuits and mineral water. Flavor is bready with the lightest minerally bitterness. Watery with a light foamy quality.

commonmac (334) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2014
Tap at Memory Lanes. Pint glass. First of the season. Light orange or dark golden in color. Healthy head reflecting fresh quality that even Memory Lanes can deliver given it’s early in the season. Taste definitely leans sweet with sugar prevalent. Toffee, caramel. A little hop-ness. End is smooth. Great start the spring beer.

Bright hazy yellow with a soapy head. Aroma or yeasts, barley, pale malts and a hint of toffee. Aroma of sweet malts, yeasts, barley and a slight earthy flavor. Light body with a slightly carbonated bite. Very good!

asedzie (606) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours golden with small white head. Nose is very simple but appetizing. Some grassy hop aroma nd fruity, apple and berry like notes, toasted malt aroma. Flavor is very mild but quite pleasant - light malt sweetness at the front followed by a refreshing tang of herbal hop flavors with just a slight touch of floral hop flavor.
