While we were on our honeymoon, I took a private surfing lesson. It was amazing! I actually got up a few more times than I expected. Val was a good sport and hung out on the beach while I did it. I can’t wait until I get to go again. Anyways, let’s get to this local beer.
Style: English Porter
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Here’s a taste of South Jersey, better known for farms than fist pumping. Roasted and dark crystal malts shine through in a smooth and light-bodied porter that is balanced by a hint of sweetness thanks to the local Jersey Fresh honey. Welcome to the Garden State, bro. Apiology is the bee’s knees!”
Random: This also comes in a nitro version.
This beer poured with a two finger, tan head. It dissipated quickly, but left no lacing, but a small crown on top of the body. The body was a dark brown with no visible carbonation due to the color. The nose was filled with dark, roasted malts. The honey made an appearance as well. The taste was sweeter than I expected, I assume from the honey. There were dark malts, which imparted some smoke and maltiness as well. The body was on the thicker side with light carbonation. It had a quick and sweet honey finish. I don’t recall how much I paid for this, but it was a single on the shelf. I thought this was a good porter, but nothing amazing.
