Served in a Pub glass. The maibock style is a helles lager brewed to bock strength, therefore still as strong as traditional bock, but lighter in color and with more hops. Frequently associated with springtime and the month of May. Color ranges from deep gold to light amber with a large, creamy, persistent white head. The flavor is typically less malty than a traditional bock, and may be drier, hoppier, and more bitter.

On draught at brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber color. Minimal head or aroma. Medium body with slightly sweet malty character. Slightly heavy, appropriate mouthfeel. Nice malty sweetness with a noticae hop presence. Overall, OKAY.
