Kennebec Summer Ale

I went with my parents to look at houses yesterday. I seriously hate looking at houses. I’m not the type of girl who knows anything about decorating or can appreciate it. So, it’s basically like torture for me. But, with it being Father’s Day weekend and all, I figured it would be nice for me to do it. Although, they did find this one house that was absolutely amazing in Millstone. So, this was the beer that I had after we were house hunting. And apologies for the picture being blurry…I took it on my iPhone.

ABV: 5.3%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the Maine Brewers’ Guild, “A classic American pale ale handcrafted with domestic malted barley, and fresh Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest. The result is a sublime brew that’s as refreshing as a ride down the Kennebec River!”

Random: I love picking up random brews when I leave New Jersey. Even if they’re not the best brews I ever had, at least I get to try something that’s a little different.

This brew poured a cloudy orange color with lots of visible carbonation. The head was crazy. It was fluffy and at least two fingers worth. I had to wait to pour the entire thing because it was so crazy. It also took forever to dissipate. The nose was pretty mild, but I picked up some orange and lemon citrus notes. I also got another scent that I really just couldn’t put my finger one. The taste was…interesting. I really couldn’t figure out what type of beer this was until I looked it up on BeerAdvocate (I later found out it was a pale ale, which surprised me as I got no real bitterness to it). It had lots of carbonation and a decent amount of grass. The citrus that I got on the nose was pretty much limited to a hint of lemon on the last. The beer itself was pretty light, but I couldn’t really figure out what this beer was about. It was generally a boring beer and didn’t work for me. On the positive side, it had a quick finish and it was pretty low alcohol. But, it would definitely be a stretch to have enough of these to feel them as I wouldn’t have it again. But, at least I got to try it, right?
