Maibock is a strong lager originally brewed in Bavaria or Germany, the name bock is supposedly derived from the town Einbeck. Maibock is a seasonal beer made for the spring and early summer (the Mai of the name indicting the month of May) of around 6.5% ABV

Maibock is traditionally a little darker than Helles but is still a pale lager, the higher alcohol content and moderate bittering units for the gravity means it’s a fairly malty beer but still crisp and clean.
