Val is stuck on the couch since she has a really bad cold. It’s been awhile since she’s been this sick. We’ve decided that we’re not leaving the house today so she can relax and rest up and get better. The cats are asleep on the couch and we’re binging on Netflix. It sounds like a successful day to me. Let’s get to the beer. This was one of the highlights of our Maryland trip a few years ago.
Style: Belgian Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The boys of summer are back home in Baltimore, and we thought we’d get you ready with this nice pale ale. 5% abv.”
Random: They make a mean cheeseplate at The Brewer’s Art and the quince paste was exceptional.
The beer poured with a finger of thick, white head that dissipated slowly. It left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, amber color with moderate carbonation. The nose had a decent amount of sweetness and Belgian yeast. It had peach and some grassy hops as well. The taste started with grass and Pilsner malt. There wasn’t a lot of sweetness and there was only a slight lemon presence and yeast as well. The body was medium thickness with just enough carbonation. The finish took awhile and was earthy. A can of this was $1.67, which came to $.14 per ounce. This wasn’t bad and I enjoyed drinking it. If you find a can, give it a shot.
