Stillwater Yacht

Posted: June 4, 2015 in Light Lager, Reviews, Stillwater Artisanal Ales

Here’s a beer from Stillwater that I’ve seen get a lot of good reviews from other bloggers. Let’s see how I feel about it.

ABV: 4.2%

Style: Light Lager

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Canned beer has made a serious return in the craft brewing world. Prior to this resurgence, the only beer found in cans were industrial lagers. So as a nod in both directions we present an elegantly crisp and hoppy new world lager. The light and refreshing pilsner malt body delivers an abundance of floral, spice, and grass driven hop flavors and aroma. Perfect for those luxurious cruises through the Caribbean. Label design notes: The luxurious and refined mood of yachting is alluded to by the muted tones of traditional nautical colors. The stripe pattern elongates the perception of the can’s size, so that it appears longer, thinner and grander. The Recorda typeface is modern and geometric, recalling the shape of a sailboat.”

Random: The can is really cool looking.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated slowly. There was some lacing left on the glass. The body was a hazy lemon-yellow color with high carbonation visible. The nose was grainy and had a touch of herbs. I think I picked up some sage and other herbal notes. The taste was light with grains. I didn’t pick up as many herbs in the taste, but I did get sage. Lemon rind came through as well. This had a lighter body with high carbonation. It had a long finish with grain and lemon rind. This was an excellent beer, especially for the summer and brought depth to a style that doesn’t normally have that quality. It was very drinkable as well. This was $3.29 for the 16 ounce can, which broke down to $.21 per ounce. I would definitely have this again. Go grab it if you see it.
