Real Ale Brewer’s Cut Maibock
AS THE SEASONS CHANGE IN BAVARIA, a similar transition takes place in the bold Bocks of its celebrated beer gardens. While the winter chill gives way to spring, so too does the hearty bockbier, shedding some of its dark malt layers to reveal the pale Maibock. It retains all the heft of its wintery predecessor, yet offers a refreshing hoppy reminder of the summer to come.
The Heller Bock is primarily a malty beer from the German brewing tradition with little hop character - neither bitter nor aromatic - though the style typically has a little more hops than the standard Bock. The color is golden to light brown or amber. They should normally pour with a substantial white head. All examples are pale and clear.
