Beer Tasting: Stoudt's Blonde Double Mai Bock

This is a maibock style lager from Stoudt's in Adamstown, PA. This 12 ounce bottle was generously donated by our friend Dennis, who fortunately lives just a couple of miles from the brewpub. The bottles were stamped with a freshness date of 7/16/06. 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: orange straw Bryan: very clear, pale, golden color; large inconsistent head; fades slowly Smell Adam: typical ale yeast & some hops Bryan: faint lager aroma Taste Adam: sweet tang fading to a bitter Bryan: very clean; typical lager flavor; nothing special; just a touch of bitterness Mouthfeel Adam: well carbonated Bryan: mildly carbonated; just thick enough to take notice Drinkability Adam: something slowing me down...not sure what it is Bryan: served colder (in the mid-40s) is better; I'm not quite sure what "double "means in this brew Seconds? Adam: maybe Bryan: I could do one more, but that's it; unfortunately, it's not as memorable as the times I've had it on draft
