Profiled by Ken Carman for PGA
This Louisville brewery is somewhat new to me, but to be honest other brews Iâ€™ve had have been, well, unimpressive.
Not this one. Yes, the wood and the nut are a tad overbearing, but the brown is there. Even ta hop bitter pops out as it warms. The aroma is almost wine like, and I get that in the taste too. Low carbonation, most of it in a huge big pillow, big bubble, head. The body is lighter than it seems: low side of medium. The bitter itâ€™s the top of the palate.
There a tad pepper sense to it too, but I think thatâ€™s the wood, walnut coming though.
Great clarity with a light brown.
36, 33 style on Rate Beer (Wow!) 82 on BA.
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.”
Ken Carman isn’t his real name. He’s not even human. Short, annoying, supposedly from Mars, “Ken” eats rocks and doesn’t jump very well, Earth’s gravity is so high. But he likes beer.
