COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The pale color of this take on a traditional German Maibock belies the sublime richness of the malt, simultaneously sweet and spicy, and the luscious Noble hops for balance. Released, as is customary, to celebrate the return of spring, Berkshire’s Maibock will help you shake off the cold of winter and embrace the season to come.

Has a nice orange/amber color with moderate carbonation and a malty smell. Taste is of malt, malt and more malt, very smooth and finishes with a light bitterness. Overall a very good brew and I enjoy the smoothness.

bottle thanks to Gnosis, pours dirty blond with a medium white head. Aroma is bready malt, some sweet caramel and a little grassy. Flavor is rich caramel malt so smooth and refreshing with just enough sharp hop notes in the finish to balance and refresh the palate. This is a well made beer.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 12, 2003
The beer pours a thick looking dark orangey gold. Head is copious, and lasts well into the last sip. Aroma is malty, with a light esteriness and that familiar lagery scent. Flavor is big and powerful. A very full bodied, malty, sweet, and tasty lager beer. Hops are nonexistent, almost. Mild esteriness, moderate carbonation. Altogether a well done beer.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Pours a murky orange with a modest white diminishing head. Scents of banana, candy are present. Taste is of bananas, rasberries, pine, apple and some sugar. Finish is bittersweet.

Welcome to the season of Spring. They have a saying in these New England parts; March is in like lion and out like a lamb. Well, besides the fact that this beer is a ’may’ bock, and not a ’march’ bock, the saying still goes, but in reverse! This beer is in like a lamb; smooth, flavorful with balanced hop to malt characteristics, easy to drink. It is out like a lion in the Serengeti plains, with it’s 6.5 % ABV. If you want to make some spring friends serve a few of these 22’s with some grilled asparagus and a pork tenderloin. Prost!

Bottle: Pours a clear copper color with a white head. Aroma, light bready malts, some caramel, yeasty, herbal and grassy notes. Flavor, caramel, crisp malts, some sweetness. Drinks nice and smooth, really a nice bock.

mcox90 (2119) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 26, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours a coppery amber color with a 1/2" off white head. Minimal lacing. Sweet nose with caramel & malt notes. Mouthfeel was thick and chewy. Flavor was again, caramel with some honey. It is a sweet beer, but not cloyingly so. Really enjoyed it. It was a gift from my daughter, but I don’t believe it is overly expensive.
