Beer Tasting: Bethlehem Brew Works Maibock
This is a Maibock style lager from Bethlehem Brew Works in Bethlehem, PA. The beer was purchased in a growler fresh from the brewery taps and tasted approximately 6 hours later. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Adam: orangish and clear Bryan: pours with a nice-sized head, slow to disappear; nice pale, clean color Smell Adam: nice and light Bryan: kind of like a basic lager; nothing to appealing for me Taste Adam: Wow!!! flavor heaven, citrussy tang and just enough sweetness Bryan: sweet; lager yeast very obvious Mouthfeel Adam: Carbonated and light, but, not thin Bryan: smooth; slight carbonation, just enough; not biting Drinkability Adam: very, with light nose, good for the masses Bryan: seems like a decent beer for lager fans, not offensive; for me, I can drink it, but not that thrilled about it Seconds? Adam: yes sir...spring is here lets bring it in with this great May Bock! Bryan: No. Though, it reminds me that I want to try the Stoudt's Blonde Double Maibock very soon!
