Beau’s Wild Oats Series No. 53 – Golden Vox

This, like yesterday’s beer, was purchased because the label was adorable.

ABV: 6%

Style: Rye Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Golden Vox is a rye pale lagered ale that was conceived and brewed collaboratively between Beau’s and Canadian hip hop artist k-os. The recipe is a blend of rye and barley malts, with just a kiss of whiskey, courtesy of a light aging on rye-soaked oak spirals. History & Style – Rye pale lagered ale is something of a hybrid creation, blending the noticeable citrusy hop character of an American Pale Ale with the spicy elements of rye malt, and adding in the signature crisp finish of a lagered ale. An aging on rye-whiskey-soaked oak adds subtle complexity to this balanced, approachable pale-golden beer. Tasting Notes -Smooth malty notes are kept in balance by the citrus & slight pine hop character. Peppery undertones derived from the rye malt harmonize with gentle warmth and subtle toastiness from light aging on rye-whiskey-soaked oak.”

Random: This comes in at 46 IBUs.

The beer poured with a loose, fluffy, white head. It dissipated quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. The body was bright orange and had a lot of visible carbonation. The nose was filled with rye and citrus. There was a touch of vanilla as well. The taste started with the same rye that came through in the nose. It quickly transitioned into orange and lemon hops and then had some white peppercorns as well. I had a hard time finding any whisky, but slight vanilla came through. The body was on the lighter side with lots of carbonation. The finish was quick with rye and white pepper. I picked this bottle up for $9.99, which came to $.45 per ounce. I liked this beer, I just wish that it had more whiskey.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
