German-Style Maibock Beer

German-style Maibock beer is a type of beer that is brewed in the German tradition. Also known as “heller bock” (meaning “pale bock”), Maibock is a strong, golden-coloured beer that is typically enjoyed during the springtime.

Maibock beers are known for their malty flavour and moderate Hop bitterness. These beers are usually full-bodied and smooth, making them very easy to drink. German-style Maibock beers are the perfect refreshing beverage to enjoy on a warm day. If you’re looking for something a little different from your typical light American lager, then give German-style Maibock beer a try. You won’t be disappointed!
