Monday is over. The weekend was seriously too short. I really didn’t do anything fun (except for Friday). I pretty much just ran errands. I’m off from work tomorrow because I have to go for a physical for the fire department. So, it’s not even like I’m off for a fun reason. This brew is from the stash that I got in Rehoboth. I’ve never even heard of this brewery, so I have no idea what to expect. It’s not distributed to New Jersey and from what I’ve seen, distribution is pretty much limited to Delaware. Let’s see how this goes.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The brewery is going “green”. New solar enery panels were recently installed at the Twin Lakes American Farm Brewery in Greenville, DE. The 2-kilowatt system is just the start. Plans include making the entire brewery completely energy independent in the near future.”

Random: I seriously could care less about the World Series this year. The Phillies should have played better this year. At least I’m not a Mets fan…

This brew poured with a two-finger white, fluffy head that dissipated slowly and left significant lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy orange with lots of active carbonation. There wasn’t much of a nose on this. There a hint of citrus and hops, but really, nothing exciting. The taste was definitely a bit more intense than the nose. At first, I got some definite hops with some bitterness. There was really no citrus to it. Then, the brew transitions into this nasty metallic taste that lasts forever into the finish. There was no real sweetness to it, although there was a slight hint of flowers. I don’t know if this brew was past its prime or what, because a lot of people really enjoy this and they said that they got a lot of biscuit in it. There was absolutely no hint of biscuit in my can. I actually think it’s pretty horrible. I wouldn’t have this again.
