On deck today we have a new beer from our friends at Starr Hill Brewery. I thought it might be fun with a little charcuterie, so here we are. This beer is a golden ale, low in ABV at 4.9%, brewed with pilsner, caramel, honey malts and oats as well as one of my favorite hops, cascade. Let’s check it out.
This beer pours gold, brilliantly clear with a nice white head that while it dies down it lingers across the surface of the beer. On the nose I immediately find a white-bread like quality and malt sweetness. There is a gentle hop quality, floral in character. Not finding a whole lot of yeast character, which is fine. On the palate the sweet malty character comes through with a honey-like sweetness as well as that bread-like flavor I was expecting. There is a slight hop bitterness and a citrus sweetness in the back of the sip. The mouth feel is low to medium and the beer leaves a slight bitterness on the tongue that gently fades leaving a very clean finish. Pleasant, refreshing.
