Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our Star Island Single is an eminently sessionable, Belgian-style pale ale offering a beguiling mix of flavor and refreshment. This medium-bodied golden ale features a slight residual sweetness from Honey Malt and hints of citrus and tropical fruits from the unique Belgian yeast it is fermented with, leaving a crisp dry finish. Enjoy it sociably while you savor good times, tall tales, friendly company & life’s unexpected pleasures.

Best by 10/13/13 printed on bottle

12oz bottle poured into a Moat Mountain pint glass.

A: Hazy, golden color. Less and a finger of white fizzy head that dissipates quickly.

S: Tropical notes. A wheat characteristic Hints of honey. Possible coriander. Black pepper.

T: Thin body. The coriander that was in the nose. Slight lemon and grapefruit. Pleasant in the back with with the spices that linger.

M: Fizzy. Slight bitterness.

O: It is what it is. Calls itself a Session ale brewed with spice. I would think a great beer to drink multiple ones on a summer day. Possibly a good beer to use in order to introduce your macro lager drinking friends into craft beer.

Best by 1/10/14 printed on bottle

A: Clear golden color with 1 finger of white fizzy head. Head faints to a thin covering of bubbles that rests on the beer leaving very minute lacing.

S: First whiff produces aromas of grapefruit and grass. Hints of some tropical fruit sweetness as well.

T: Lemon and grapefruit sweetness hits you at first and then blends into a slightly spicy finish. Coriander spice and hints of sweet honey dew melon in the finish.

M: Light fizzy mouthfeel that softens the bitterness and spice.

O: Not bad. Good hop and malt sweetness mixed with a little spice in the finish. Refreshing combination, good summer beer.
