Gordon Biersch Maibock

Gordon Biersch Maibock has a rich malty flavor from an abundance of dark roasted caramel malt

Gordon Biersch's co-founder Dan Gordon studied brewing engineering at the Technical University of Munich, Weihenstephan, providing him with the needed expertise to craft German beer styles.

This brewery's take on a Maibock pours an amber color with shades of copper and orange. Its rich malty flavor comes from the abundant dark-roasted caramel malt, which complements the moderate bitterness to create a well-balanced American version of the Bavarian style. Attention to detail includes the use of a Weihenstephan yeast strain imported from Bavaria. Just keep in mind this beer can catch you off guard — the sweet, malty taste may lead you to forget that it has an ABV of 7.3 percent.
