3.86/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

date of tasting: 3/22/2013
place of tasting: Barley Vine - Bristol CT
beer: Maibok Lager
brewery: Berkshire Brewing Co.
type: Maibok
style: Lager
glass: mug
temperature of beer:45F

Appearance: pale golden copper in appearance, head is rich and lasting. Very clean and clear

Smell: roasty, malty, strawberry comes through and lends itself to a whiff of cocoa butter

Taste: on the sweeter side, hint of strawberry and concord grape. it’s fleeting, but a little vanilla marshmallow.

Mouthfeel: rich and creamy, medium to heavy bodied.

Overall Impression: I’m not incredibly familiar with the style but from what I know I like it. This beer seems to be a pretty good example albeit a bit lighter in color and sweeter than I would normally expect. Personally, I would enjoy more of a balance with some hops contrasting with the sweetness of the beer.

Food Pairing: strawberry shortcake for sure. any bbq. boiled meats, grilled sausage, blood sausage, rice and beans.

Serving type: on-tap

A- Berkshire Maibock pours a beautiful burnt gold with a fizzy white head.

S- Caramel, sweet candy sugar, toffee, and sweet malts fill the nose.

T- Caramel, sweet candy sugar and sweet malts pretty much wrap up the flavor as well. The finish remains true to the nose and flavor. Sweet malts linger on the palate.

M- Berkshire Maibock has a light-medium tongue weight, coupled with medium-high carbonation. This is a fine Spring/Summer brew.

Overall, this is an easy drinking beer that caters to a sweet tooth. Although, not overly sweet, it will make a sweet beer lover smile. This is a nice beer.
