I find New Holland hit and miss. This was not just a hit; while not a home run, at least second base…. more like third. I got everything here, both in the nose and to taste. The â€œmilkâ€ could be more â€œmilkâ€ when cold: lactose etc.
Head disappears fast: white foam. So black canâ€™t see through. Pillow lite brown head.
The milk is more in the nose and it could use more stout characteristics to taste and to sniff…ala’ roasted barley. But this is a minor concern A tad like a chocolate shake for adults with bourbon, raspberry and lemon. Malt complexity obvious: pale, probably chocolate and brown. No hops noted.
Buy it, but complain to the brewer, “Why can’t your brews be more like this?”
Not enough reviews on on either BA or RG to quote.
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.”
