…to start enjoying some Maifest. The Loon already has it on tap, so I reckoned I’d give it a try at last Friday’s happy hour. A decent hoppy aroma gives this blondey a better than expected flavor that goes down smooth and bitterness-free. I happened to drink the Maifest right after a Newcastle, so my bias (and residual taste) was difficult to overcome. Another enjoyable, albeit unspectacular offering from the Schell’s folks. Next time I’ll drink it with a clean palate and see what I think of it then. 3 out of 5 ain’t bad, though.
I used to be a typical Bud/Busch/Michelob guy. Whatever's cold, right?! (I grew up in a town of 690) However, around my final year of college, I developed tastebuds and soon began to whistle a different tune. My fridge now usually contains about 5-7 different beers at any given time, and I'll be dipped in dog doo if you can find a domestic light beer in there. My tastes are more inclined to the dark side, with Stouts and Black Lagers being my favorites, generally speaking, though I have developed a love for IPAs as well. View all posts by Joe Lunchpail
