Maibock is a lot like Märzen/Oktoberfest, only a bit “bigger”. More alcohol, more hops, though roughly in the same color range, though tending more brown/amber than orange-ish. They also tend to be richer than Vienne/Märzen type beers, though not so much as the other bock (big) styles.
I wanted to represent it with a more refined character to contrast it against the Buccaneer. A Deacon has always had the connotation of an older, wiser person, and in my mind gave the feeling I’m trying to express with this beer.
