On-tap at Floyd's in Brooklyn (the home of the indoor Bocce court!).

After a week of beer anemia in the Caribbean (Wadadli and Red Stripe, with my only relief being a single bottle of Guinness Foreign Extra), I was ready to hit up some quality brews as I passed through NYC on my way home. Sixpoint Brownstone not only fit the bill, it made my day.
This is a brown ale to inspire odes. Perfectly balanced, lovely to look at (in a dark or dim room, hold a candle behind the glass -- it shimmers a beautiful red-brown), and a joy to sip.
It flirts with being too sweet, but then a follow-through of hop bitterness saves the day.
It begins sharply on the tongue, but the lingering aftertaste is heavenly -- I believe I stated that I would be loathe to brush my teeth that night, for fear of losing the Brownstone finish in my mouth.
Worth a trip to Brooklyn!
