Notes/Commercial Description:
Maibocks are a Bavarian beer style. Bocks are strong German-style lagers and can range from light to dark. Maibocks are typically golden to light amber. They were served in the Spring to celebrate the end of winter. The Bavarian mayor (burgermeister) traditionally taps the first keg. Hizzoner Maibock is a golden full-bodied lager that has been extensively lagered to develop sweetness and crispness of character.

A clear golden amber color with a reasonable layer of white foam on top and very nice lacing. The aroma is vinegar-malt with wheat and lemon and some rhubarb ideas. The flavor delivers strong malt with more citrus nuances. There's an interesting leafy-lemon hop that blends well with the wheat and malt backbone. It's solidly medium body with a somewhat thick, slightly viscous feel. The carbonation is mild but very effective with a slight spiciness. Very flavorful stuff and something I would revisit any time.

On-tap at the brewery tasting room.

A: Clear bright amber body under a finger of dense white head. Good retention, light lace. Solid.

S: Light bready malts are front and center, with some fruity and nutty undertones as well as a dose of leafy hops. Nice.

T: Crisply malty up front, with sweeter fruit notes behind. Bigger sweetness on the finish, along with some faint hop bitterness. Enjoyable, but not quite as fresh-tasting as the aroma suggested.

M: Soft, creamy, velvety medium body. Amazing.

O: Really nice, full-bodied lager. One of the better Two Roads offerings so far.

Cheers!

Had on tap at the brewery

Appearance: amber-gold in color, 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, clear

Smell: sweet sugary honey and cedar

Taste: woodsy, cedary, bready malt with some honey

Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, light body, sweet

Overall: Wow. What a malty and woodsy--but not wood aged treat. Really love the flavors here. This may be my favorite Two Roads brew outside of Igor. One of the better maibocks I have had in while. This is one I hope the brew again.

Poured from tap at coalhouse Stamford ct. Pours a maple color with a bit of foamy head that dissipates quick. Nice carbonation. Good sweet malty aromas with a bit of mapley sugar. Taste is sweet malts with a big crispness. Some slight dried fruit notes...really pleasant. Super easy to drink and just all around a great brew.

On tap at 2 Bros. Pours a translucent brownish amber color with almost no head. Virtually no lacing. The aroma is grassy and malty with bready notes. The taste is more of the same. Malty at first followed up by some floral and grassy hops. Caramel as well as some breadiness. Smooth and crisp with a nice malty finish. Light mouthfeel. Very drinkable with a light alcohol presence. Overall, pretty solid brew I'd grab again.
