Maibock, also known as Helles bock, is a lager brewed to bock strength, therefore still as strong as traditional bock, but lighter in color and with more hop presence. It is a fairly recent development compared to other styles of bock beers, frequently associated with springtime and the month of May.

Color can range from deep gold to light amber with a large, creamy, persistent white head, and moderate to high carbonation, while alcohol content generally ranges from 6% to 8% ABV.

The flavor is typically less malty than a traditional bock, and may be drier, hoppier, and more bitter, but still with a relatively low hop flavor, with a mild spicy or peppery quality from the hops, increased carbonation, and alcohol content.
