Union Anthem Golden Ale

I finally got a new laptop. I waited a whole ten years to get a new Mac, but this one is ridiculously fast. It was taking me so long to post that I pretty much gave up until the new laptop came.

ABV: 5%

Style: Cream Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “In honor of the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key’s penning of The Star Spangled Banner just outside of Fort McHenry right here in Baltimore, we’ve brewed up this easy drinking, all-American beer. Our take on a classic American style, the Cream Ale, this light golden ale is brewed with American grown barley, wheat, corn, & oats and lightly hopped with Columbus for bittering and a kiss of floral Mosaic. This all-American classic is just the thing to make you sing!”

Random: This beer uses Columbus and Mosaic hops.

The beer poured with a one finger, cream-colored head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was clear and straw yellow. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was muted. There was some grain along with wheat and corn and a touch of cream. The taste was equally unoffensive. I got the same oats and corn along with a touch of grass and cream. The body was super light with lots of carbonation. It had a quick, unremarkable finish. A can was $1.83, which came to $.15 per ounce. This beer wasn’t expensive, but was just very bland. I wouldn’t refuse it if my other choice was a macro, but this didn’t wow me.
