April Dirty Thirty Day 5 – Legend Brewing Maibock

Today’s April Dirty Thirty review is on…

Legend Maibock

Legend Maibock… It’s Legendary.

Legend Brewing Maibock

Critical Information:

  • 6.6% ABV
  • Spring Seasonal

My Experience:

– POUR

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Decent sized pure-white head. There are very tiny bubbles that keep working for a few minutes.

– SMELL

Caramel and maltiness mix with some cloves. It has a rich, toasty lager aroma.

– TASTE

It’s sweet and toasty. Very minimal to no hop flavor. It has a bite to it’s aftertaste where it lasts for several moments. The aftertaste has just a slight bitterness to it (and not in a bad way). I’ve only had one or two Maibocks before and honestly can’t remember what they tasted like. I did no research on the style as well so I had no idea what to expect. But I like it. A lot.

– MOUTHFEEL

It’s slightly thicker than I would have expected. It has a heavy, dense weight to it.

– FOOD PAIRING

You don’t need any. But what’s the fun in that? How about a soft cheese, Brie?, and some deviled eggs. Ford’s Fish Shack has great deviled eggs that’s served with candied bacon.

– OVERALL THOUGHTS

Maibock. Yeah, might have to try more of them. I’ll have to do some research on them too. Legend Brown Ale is high on my list of go-to beers and now the Legend Maibock might be on it too. What makes this even better is that it’s from a Virginia brewery from a great city in Richmond. Speaking of Richmond I’m going to have to get a Hardywood beer into the rotation. Everyone keeps talking about them and I have to try more from them.

Score: 9/10
