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.

A-Pours a clear, burnt straw color. Thinner, white head. Head leaves rings of lace.

S-Mostly sweet. Lacking intensity. Has a sort of 'honeyed cereal' aroma. Grainy and neutral.

T-More of the same. Sweet to the core. Grainy. Would like to see a bit more flavor on the hoppy side.

M-Creamier than expected. Easy drinking. Light carbonation.

O/D-It would take a Herculean effort for me to love this beer and it wasn't.
