Union Steady Eddie

Val and I have started watching the reboot of “Will and Grace.” It’s pretty good, although not as great as I remembered. We’re only two episodes in, so hopefully it will get better. Anyways, let’s get to the beer of the night.

ABV: 7%

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “After spending the cold winter training our palettes on malty winter brews its time to get out on the field and play some ball with an IPA that’s both refreshing and complex. The lemony-herbal aromatics of Sorachi Ace hops spring out of a nice, light bodied wheat & honey malt base. You can always rely on a solid hit from Steady Eddie.”

Random: This beer came in at 80 IBUs.

The beer poured with a two finger, slightly off white head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was bright orange in color and cloudy. There was moderate carbonation visible. The nose was filled with fresh grace, lemon grass and cilantro. Sorachi Ace is by far my favorite hop, and this beer had a lot of it. The taste also had notes of cilantro, lemon grass and grass clippings. Then, green onion came through with some light malt and wheat finished up the sip. The body was on the lighter side with high carbonation. The finish was lengthy with lemon grass and cilantro. A can of this was $2, which broke down to $.17 per ounce. I enjoyed this beer a lot and this would make for a good food beer.
