By tradition, the first barrel of Maibock is tapped in the Hofbräuhaus in the last week of April, in time for the merry month of May. The success story of Munich’s oldest bock beer goes back as far as 1614. With its powerfully aromatic flavour and its alcoholic content of some 7.2% volume, Hofbräu Maibock marks one of the high points in the beer-lover’s calendar!

ttoadee (1765) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2018
Light bronze pour, finger of white foam. Nose is carmelized malt. Middle has a medium mouthfeel, caramel, hearty bread, medium kilned malt, and slightly spicy hops. Finish is malty and still a little woody.

JoeinDahlem (1641) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2018 Lovely, bright, red-tinted amber with all sorts of sturdy foam. Like ice cream after a steady pour. Some herbal hop showing through caramel in the nose. Sweetness balanced by firm bitterness, beautifully well rounded, rugged touches of hop-resin and alcohol sticking around. Beautifully polished but full of flavor. Gorgeous beer.

Anfang März, mitten in der Fastenzeit, bringt Hofbräu schon den Maibock heraus, der traditionell erst Ende April angestochen wird. Wozu die Eile? - “Hofbräu Maibock“, Flasche (50 cl) von Getränke Hoffmann, Berlin. - Dunkelgoldbraun, klar. - In der Nase schweres toastig-nussiges Malz, feiner hopfenwürziger Hopfen, Zitrusfrucht und Alkohol. - Antrunk kernig toastmalzig mit deutlicher, gut bitterer zitrusfruchtiger Hopfenherbe. Durchschnittlich rezent, für einen Bock überraschend schlank. Erst beim zweiten Schluck wird eine breite, schwere Malzigkeit mit Anklängen an Karamel und Honig und kerniger Malzbittere spürbar. Die krautige, etwas derbe Hopfenherbe bildet das nötige Gegengewicht dazu. - Ordentlicher, kräftig gehopfter Bock, frisch und kernig. Jetzt muß nur noch der Mai kommen ...

tiong (8060) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2018
Draught @ Hofbräuhaus, München (as Urbock). Smooth, earthy and slightly sweetish malty bock with some grass, hay, hops, caramel and toffee. Fresh and smooth.

rumproasts (6053) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2017
bottle. Golden with one finger head. Medium sweetness, almost honey-like. Medium hoppy bite that finishes clean. I've never really had a maibock that I enjoyed much, but this is surprisingly good, and I definitely enjoyed this.

DeanF (2776) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2017
Has a good aroma mix of caramel and shredded wheat, nice big head and clear copper body with minimal carbonation. Flavour is a good bread and rye mix with sweet wurt notes, and a smooth mouthfeel. Nice and refreshing.

Mister_Li (1757) - GERMANY - JUL 19, 2017
Klares Bernstein mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, Karamell, süßlich, nussig, würzig, leicht bitter.

nybol (2795) - DENMARK - JUL 15, 2017
Må give Sarek ret, lidt underlig farve for lys. Men ellers en god øl der har en god fylde og en anelse skarp bocksmag

Diabobale (580) - ITALY - JUL 9, 2017
Ambrato carico, schiuma evanescente, al naso caramello bruciato e diacetile. Il bocca si ripetono , con qualche nota ossidativa da cartone bagnato. Carbonazione bassa e corpo medio-leggero.
