I can’t wait for football season to start again. It’s my favorite sport and the Eagles are reigning champs. Hopefully, we have a repeat.
Style: Dortmunder/Export Lager
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Kieran and Dave both have very strong ties to the Bronx. Kieran was born in the Woodlawn section of the Bronx, and returned to go Manhattan College, while Dave’s grandfather played football at Evander Childs HS, Dave’s mother grew up in Riverdale, and Dave spent all 13 years of grade and high school in the Bronx. After spending many years in the corporate world, Kieran and Dave decided it was time to start something more in line with their passions. Combining their love for craft beer, desire to create a thriving company, and a need to provide something better to the people, their vision for Gun Hill Brewing co. was born. Both are extremely proud to bring production brewing back to the borough.”
Random: This is my first beer from Gun Hill.
The beer poured with a thick, one finger, ecru colored head. It dissipated slowly, but left some lacing on the glass. The body was a bright yellow with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was rather mild with some yeast and white bread. There was a hint of floral hops in the background. The taste was more of the same. It had a prevalent yeast and white bread flavor. The floral hops were more pronounced than in the nose, but not by much. The body was light and crisp with enough carbonation to back it up. The finish had floral hops and yeast. This was a beer that I bought awhile back in New York, so I don’t recall how much it was, but don’t remember this being very expensive. I liked the beer, but it was relatively simple.
