The month of May has a lot to offer: the first really warm days draw people outside, everything is green and blooming in all its glory, fat cockchafers buzz through the mild early summer evenings, lilies of the valley exude their sensual scent, bars invite you to dance into May , the outdoor pools open their doors and light-footed summer life can begin. As a little icing on the cake, many breweries brew a very special specialty just in time for the first of May: the Maibock is a festive strong beer that heralds the warm season and puts you in a good mood with its strong character and fine spice.
A wonderfully drinkable example of the Maibock category comes from Hummel. The brewery from the Franconian town of Merkendorf pours out its Helle Maibock every year from April 23rd and delights friends and fans with a copper-red strong beer that brings a decent 7.0% alcohol content into the glass. A tempting scent of freshly baked bread, creamy caramel and grassy hops rises from the slightly tinted crown, the initial sip follows the olfactory first impression. Soft notes of roasted malt combine on the palate with toffee, yeast braid and honey. The hops deliver harmonious grassy notes and a bitterness that skilfully cushions the heavy sweetness of the malt. A floral finish crowns the beer enjoyment and stays on the tongue for a long time with its crisp bitterness.
