Tasting Notes: Cloudy golden in color with a thick white head. A pungent and spicy aroma. Flavor is sharp and slightly grapefruit with some sourness. Highly carbonated with a clean finish.
Description: There was a time in old world France when nearly every family farm had a brewery. A necessary part of farm life was to provide a ration of beer to laborers, as beer was safer to drink than the water of the time. (Has to do with water carrying bacteria and alcohol killing said bacteria. Yay beer!) Farm Hand is our interpretation of what these rustic beers must have been like. It is slight in body, mildly sweet, and has a slight cloudiness from the simple un-malted grains similar to the period.
