This was the second brew at the bar. I needed to drink something while I was watching the Yankees game with a bunch of Boston fans. Although I’m not a Yankees fan, it’s still painful to watch them get killed by Boston, especially around Boston fans. I’ve never even heard of this brewery, and the brew was on tap, so I figured it was worth a try.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Hazy light golden in color accented with a clean malt aroma and floral hops. Restrained hop additions allow Wormtown’s Pale ale to maintain a great balance between soft malt flavor and bitterness. A real session beer!”
Random: I also bought their Pro-Am Porter to try…we’ll see how it is.
This brew poured a clear, straw yellow color with crazy visible carbonation on the body. The head was a pure white, one finger one that lingered around for awhile and left some lacing on the glass. The first thing that struck me was the lack of anything on the nose. I had to search around for some earthy tones and grass. This was not a good sign. The taste wasn’t much better. I think that this beer was old because the only thing I really got was decaying grass. This was just an unpleasant beer all around and one that I really struggled to finish. After reading some reviews, I think there was something wrong with it. The crowd at the bar was pretty much a macro-drinking crew, so it could be that this beer was one that sat around awhile. It was very light and carbonated with a quick finish. Initially I said that I wouldn’t have it again, but after reading other reviews, I would give it a try since I think I got a bad pint.
