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.

True to style, but not quite enough malt sweetness for my liking.

On-tap 5/17/2014 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light reddish brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruit, honey, lager yeast, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of honey and fruit. Then a hearty malt character comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
