Beer Profile: Maiden the Shade by Ninkasi Brewing

maiden

Profiled by Maria Devan

Pours golden yellow with a white head.

Nose is citrusy, sweet and floral. Comes together on the palate like a spiked lemony sugar cookie blast with a strong bitter to finish it.

Forceful and well made.

I paired this with two dishes. A light salad with apples and a lemon dressing and some home made breaded chicken with a sweet chili and lime dipping sauce.

Welcome to the PGA beer rating system: one beer “Don’t bother.” Two: Eh, if someone gives it to you, drink. Three: very good, go ahead and seek it out, but be aware there is at least one problem. Four: seek it out. Five: pretty much “perfecto.”
