Cambridge Brewing Company Morning Dew

Here’s another review of a CBC beer. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Morning Dew is a refreshing take on Belgian Golden ale. It is brewed with a complex blend of malted and unmalted grain, including Rye Wheat, Buckwheat and flaked Barley. It has a medium body, smooth and round with a long lingering white head. Morning Dew is lightly bittered with German Hallertauer hops and infused with a touch of elderflower, then extensively dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin. This provides a beautiful balance of floral and fruit aromatics, follows by hints of spicy grain. The flavor is more fruit with cereal grain and spicy Belgian yeast character, with a juicy bright finish.”

Random: I need to get up to CBC since I enjoy their beers so much.

This beer poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a slightly hazy, straw yellow color. There was light carbonation visible. The nose had honey, tropical fruit and yeast. I wanted to get some spice in the nose, but I didn’t find any. The taste started with honey and quickly went into golden fruit. Some bread was there and also grassy bitterness and floral notes. There wasn’t much spice in this either. The body was light and crisp with high carbonation. It had a lengthy, sweet finish with cereal grains and golden fruits. This was another beer that came from my parents, so no commentary on the price. Even if I had to pay for it, it was still a flavorful outstanding beer that really had depth to it. If you see this on the shelves, grab a bomber of it.
