About Maibock
Maibocks are light bronze to deep amber in color and range in alcohol from 6-7.5%. These beers are medium to full-bodied and are characterized by a sweet malty flavor and subtle hop character. As its name suggests, this is a bock style that traditionally makes a spring appearance in May in celebration of a new brewing season. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Capital Maibock, Hofbräu Maibock and August Schell Schell’s Maifest.

Amber color. Aromas of orange oil, roasted squash flatbread, and toasted cashew with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dry light-to-medium body and a polished, relaxed toasted baguette, lemon marmalade, and hints of coffee finish. A bigger-bodied lager with pleasing citrus notes that’s at once refreshing and warming.
