Maibock (German-Style Heller Bock)

English Pronunciation: My Bock

Maibock (literally: May Bock) is the Bavarians' strong, golden lager favored during the brief transation between the severe winters along the northern edge of the Alps, when people hunker down indoors, and the hot summers, when people flock to the beer gardens. The first Bockbier of fall makes its appearance towards the end of November, brewed with fresh new hops and malt from the new harvest. In Bavaria, this marks the beginning of Starkbierzeit (stong beer time), which means Bockbier season.

Other names: Helles Bock, Heller Bock, Fruhlingsstarkier
