Maibock / Helles Bock |  ABV ?

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This full-bodied lager is our interpretation of a classic Bavarian Heller Maiboch, a style known for its well balanced, easy-drinking character. Distinguished by its rich medium-to-dark golden color, sweet, malty aroma, and delicate, flowery hop finish, Bayou Bock makes for a perfect accompaniment to a wide range of cuisine.

Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a light golden hue with a nice one finger thick head that fades to leave a nice creamy quarter inch head. Very light lacing.

S - Sweet malts, light corn, the citrus/hops is super, super faint.

T - Light nutty qualities, corn, sweet malts. No real hops, light caramel, faint tinny/metallic notes.

M - Mouthfeel is light, decent carbonation. Feels slightly thin.

O - Overall, bit of a let down. Its easy drinking, sure, but on par with a macro.

Re-reviewing... out of a bottle at home.

App: Very light, clear golden color.

Smell: Grassy, earthy, a little noble hops.

Taste: Finally more like a beer, a little malts but nothing special.

MF: Thin with a lingering funk.

Overall: Not good, not one I would try again.

This brewery recently underwent a shakeup in management so I tried it again after not liking it a few years ago.

Appearance: Clear golden with small head. No lacing.
Mouthfeel: Light to moderate body with light carbonation.
Aroma: Malty sweet with a little graininess.
Flavor: Initial maltiness followed by light grain flavors. Finishes with a clean bitterness and slight sweetness.

Overall I enjoyed this though it's a bit on the lighter side for a bock. It isn't a super complex Bock if you're looking to really go big, but makes up for it with good balance and being very drinkable so is a good change of pace from pale ales and lagers for a everyday drinker. Check the inside of the six pack for a date after Nov. 2012 though to make sure you get the newer batches.
