I’m really surprised by how much I liked this one. It’s very flavorful. Tastes like summer. Citrus-y? Love the clean finish. I’m having it with leftovers from the grill. Out on the deck, by the cooler, with that charcoal smell in the air and a pair of giant tongs in my hand would definitely be the way to drink the MaiFest. Just as soon as it warms up.
Good ol’ August Schell, our standby, our stalwart, keeping the German styles going for nigh on 150 years. Good ol’ gold and green MaiFest label…the bottle’s open and now I drink…Clear, golden hue, big, lasting, creamy white head…loverly… Sweet malty nose, apples and cereal husks, with whiffs of honey…wow, a lot going on here. Shines bright in the nose, but in the taste… beautiful. Tons of fresh malty flavor, but never too heavy, very drinkable, and floods of flavor keeps rolling in…Crisp and delicious…lays on the palate a bit, then softly drifts away. Seems better than I remember it…are these guys improving after nearly a century and a half? Haiku #8 (for week 14? I’ve got catching up to do!)Though April showers/may come your way, drink the beer /that they brew for May.
