Style Files: Episode 33 - Helles Bock

Pint Talking

Sep 13 2023 • 33 mins

In this episode Bob and I look at the Helles Bock. Also called “heller bock” (meaning “pale bock”), the German-style Maibock is paler in color and more hop-centric than traditional bock beers. A lightly toasted and/or bready malt character is often evident.

Examples of this style:

1.     Ayinger – Maibock

2.     Rogue – Dead Guy Ale

3.     Magic City Brewing Company – But I thought everything was okay.
