Life On Tap Episode #364: Marybock (Fifth Hammer Brewing Company Marybock - Maibock)

Dan was going back and forth between Lager Month and Maibocks in May, with the next palate trip from Fifth Hammer’s Marybock.

Fifth Hammer Brewing Company Marybock

STYLE: Maibock
ABV: 7.0%
AVAILABILITY: 16 oz. cans/Draft (Seasonal)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.


Medium to burnt orange/amber in color with a thick, beautiful, fluffy head.


Floral and herbal notes from the hops mix with a baked bread/biscuit element from the malt bill.


The notes from the aroma continue with a pleasant minerality towards the end and on the finish after some crusty bread notes.


This one has a mouthcoating effect, with a good degree of weight on the palate with medium mouthfeel and a moderately dry finish with the carbonation coming in clutch.


I love that more and more Maibocks are hitting the market…more for me if you don’t want them! German food fare is always good for the style, but I was feeling a Korean fried chicken with Gochujang while sampling.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
