A lighter-colored bock brewed for springtime consumption. Recommended: 2-stage cold fermentation and yeast starter.

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)
