Today’s April Dirty Thirty review is on…
Legend Maibock… It’s Legendary.
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Decent sized pure-white head. There are very tiny bubbles that keep working for a few minutes.
Caramel and maltiness mix with some cloves. It has a rich, toasty lager aroma.
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.
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.
Congratulations for being a part of the April Dirty Thirty project. Keep the tweets and comments coming, you’re doing outstanding! Remember to use #AprilDirty30. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this beer, what you had tonight, what you’ve tried recently, anything.
