This bock substyle is brewed late in the year and lagered all winter for spring celebrations. Maibocks are unusual because they are quite pale for a bock and, although still malty, the balance is a little more towards the hoppy-bitter than in dark bocks. Our Maibock is a full-bodied beer; deep, brilliant golden color with a cap of white foam and a sweet malty aroma and flavor with undertones of noble hops. Recommended: 2-stage cold fermentation and yeast starter.

Five star Maibock Review by Jerry
Brewed 11/12 with Wyeast Bohemian Lager yeast and a starter. O.G. 1069 F.G. 1018 6.85% ABV. Primary fermentation with a bow-off tube. In primary for 12 days. Secondary in chest freezer for 2 months at 38-41 degrees with digital controller. Kegged 1/29.
A really good Maibock true to the style. Wife's favorite beer. Good taste, color, mouth feel and balance. Will brew again for sure. (Posted on 2/22/12)
Good even without lagering Review by Jason
I lacked the equipment at the time I was brewing to do this one as a lager so I used a clean ale yeast (US-05) to ferment the beer. It still turned out great and has made a very good Maibock-ish beer. At least as good as other Maibock's I've tried and has been a great beer to drink while welcoming spring. (Posted on 5/20/11)
Full bodied flavor, great bock taste Review by Maybetter!
This beer exceeded my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed the simplicity of the recipe, but what a full bodied result. A great beer for any occasion but especially in the spring as the taste buds awaken the senses and the body is ready for better weather! (Posted on 1/14/11)
deep flavor layers Review by Erica C
This beer is delicious. A paler, hopped-up bock. Almost a bock crossed with a milder IPA. Rich flavor all around, but moving toward crispness. A great beer to transition in the springtime away from heavy winter brews. (Posted on 5/2/10)
