Val doesn’t like football, but is nice enough to take me places when it’s on. During playoff season, we ended up at a bar in Hamilton so I could watch the game.
Style: Cream Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Unbeknownst to most: The feral cat is the sideshow attraction and mascot to the boardwalk. No one quite knows exactly when the undomesticated felines made their homes under the piers, but most say it happened when the boardwalk was first built back in the 1880s. The reason? Some say it is due to the scraps of food dropped by tourists that slip through the cracks of the planks. These curious creatures have roamed the boardwalks for over a century, spending their days in the shadows largely undetected by human eyes. Yet, the inquisitive cat, would have witnessed all that is lost, yet not forgotten.”
Random: Val makes dozens and dozens of Christmas cookies every year.
The beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw-yellow color with a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with ginger. Vanilla was present as well, but it didn’t have an overly sweet scent. The taste had a bit more sweetness to it. The ginger was there, but not as overpowering as the nose. I picked up vanilla and some shortbread cookie and cinnamon. The body was light and had a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with ginger and shortbread cookie. I enjoyed this beer a lot. With a low ABV, you could easily put back a few of these.
