3.86/5 rDev -0.8%
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.
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 - Poured from a BBC bomber into a tulip glass. Nice finger worth of head. Hazy amber copper. I'm surprised by this, I figured the beer would be a little lighter in color. Not much retention and no lacing.
S - Sweet. Caramel mostly.
T - I'm surprised by this. I'm getting almost entirely caramel notes with just the faintest hint of noble hop character on the back end. Bitterness is low to non-existent.
M - Medium-bodied, not much going on here to describe.
O - I read some of the other reviews and they all point out the malty sweetness of this beer, so I'm pretty sure I'm drinking the same thing that they are, but these caramel-sweet beers are just not for me.
