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.

Tasted at Food and Froth. Not bad, really. Decent entry for a Heller Bock.

This Maibock has a nice malty taste mixed with its rich, bread notes. It's smooth, but not otherwise distinct. It's rich for just a second before it kind of...fades away into malt.

12 oz can.. Here’s to finally being off after 15 days work in a row, at a job I hate.

Pours a honey golden color. Pillowy head. Large pockets of bubbles in the head. Interesting. Very clear. Good retention, fair lacing.

Aroma is honey and malt. Norhing else, but that honey smells really good.

Taste is much like a marzen. A little more bitter. Malty, lightly floral hopped. Slightly yeasty.

Mouthfeel is exceptional for a 6.7% offering. So smooth, medium bodied. Creamy even. It woould be easy to get carried away with this. I’m getting a final touch of bitterness, way into the finish.

Overall, this is delicious. Very enjoyable. I do recommend this, and I would certainly buy it again. On tap, it must be amazing!

Tap at Whole Foods, Omaha location. Pours golden with a lasting foamy white head. Aroma was sweet malts, bread dough and raisin. Taste was lightly sweet with a slight bitter finish.

Clear golden color, lots of carbonation bubbling up in the Pilsener glass. (A Pilsener glass is ideal for showing off the great look of this German-style lager.) Tall, white, thick creamy-looking head. Recedes slowly leaving thick lacing. Sweet-smelling bready, some spice, fruit aroma. Substantial mouth feel. Initial taste is bread and fruit, not too sweet, plenty of body, very slight bitter in the finish. Smooth and creamy, yet a crispness to it as well. This is very nice... not sure what a Maibock is supposed to be, but I like this one. It has the malt you’d expect, with a complexity in the spice, fruit, and doughyiness that remains in the mouth, a creamy body and feel, and a slight touch of bitterness to finish it off. Recommended.

Not a great maibock, but it’s not my favorite style. Light with a Pilsner appearance. Caramel base, lightly lemony citrus finish.

A week from code. Pours a clear darker golden with a tall, rocky cream-colored head that retains well, leaving some foamy clumps of lace behind. Nose involves sweet honey rolls, some remnants of noble spice, some savory notes, crisp lager yeast. Fairly sweet, somewhat bitter. Medium bodied, fairly oily, decent action, finishing pretty clean with some bready dough and light hopping. Not too shabby. Uneventful in that there’s no flavor or aroma explosions, but that’s not what this style is about. Just a sweeter, creamy lager. Listed at 6.7% ABV on the bottle.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear dark golden, white one finger head, nice lace, some retention. Aroma of light caramel and grass. Taste is sweet with just a slight bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, metallic mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of grass, bread, caramel and flowers. It’s OK.

Draft at MSP. Clear golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of cereal, honey. Taste has sweet caramel. OK.
