Default Hofbrau Maibock - Any Clone Ideas or Attempts?

Hofbrau Maibock is simply delicious. I've gotten it twice and was blown away each time. Too bad they use green botttles as the first was slightly skunked.

But anyway. Its an amber bock that comes in at 7.2%, not much else given on their US website. I have had lagers with a light malty flavor and have had some that were overblown malt bombs. This one is just perfect IMO, and I would like to be able to make a keg of it.

Any tips would be appreciated. Ingredients? Double/Tripel Decoction? Single infusion with Aromatic?

Primary #1: Cascadian Dark Ale #2: Empty
Secondary #1
: Berry Rhubarb Wine #2: Empty #3: Empty #4: Empty
