Merry Christmas! Hopefully everyone is having a nice holiday with family and friends. Here’s the beer review for tonight.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We believe that the best products are made locally, and that everyone has a right to fresh, local craft beer. Drinking beer close to where it’s brewed gives us a better product and does right by the local economy and environment. From bag of grain to pint glass, making beer is our passion, and sharing our product with you is at the heart of what we do. Only two years ago, none of this would have been possible in Montgomery County, MD, so we worked with government and community leaders to remove unnecessary, prohibition-era barriers, enabling an expansion in local beer production and distribution.”
Random: The brewery is open 7 days a week.
The beer poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated quickly and left limited lacing on the glass. The body was a golden orange color and clear. There was only light carbonation visible. The nose was filled with honey sweetness and golden raisins. It also had a touch of Sauternes wine. The taste started incredibly sweet, to the point of cloying. It had a syrupy honey note with overripe peaches. It had a slight brandy note as well. The alcohol was very apparent and off-putting. The body was thick and syrupy with not enough carbonation. The finish was lengthy and had a lot of honey sweetness. A pounder can was $2.50, which came to $.16 per ounce. This beer was just a miss for me. It was way too boozy and sweet. I wouldn’t have this one again.
