What color is a Maibock? Any color. When does it come out? Usually late April into early May. How long does it last? Not long. Head to the Bierquellenwanderweg to hike an amazing beer hiking trail and taste some of the finest dark lagers on the planet. Go very early in May and you'll find two lovely Maibocks too.
Klosterbräu Maibock is a richly malty amber Bock with some apricot in the nose and a moreishly dry lingering semi-bitter finish.
Rittmayer Hallerndorfer Hefeweizen is a serviceable if somewhat bland example of the style.
Rittmayer Maibock is one of the drier Hellerbocks I've come across. The combination of rich malt and obvious hops is something I wish more breweries would attempt. This is my favorite of the Rittmayer line-up.
