Growler fill from the brewery. Poured into a DC Brau can glass.
Appearance: Bright, clear, and golden in color. Thin white head fizzles out to a thin ring and ok lacing.
Aroma: Spicy and floral hops. toasted grain.
Taste: Mostly the same as aroma, starts out with a wet, fresh, grassy hop character, balanced with a toasted grain bill. A little spiciness and from the hops dances on the back of your tongue throughout the finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, well-balanced. Very light with tight carbonation. Could drink this all day doing yard work. Not that thats an insult in anyway. It's just a damn good summer-y easy drinker. Flavorful and well-rounded for a style that can be pretty underwhelming.
Serving type: growler

Brewery filled growler. This is the new collaboration between D.C. Brau and the D.C. United football club. Pours a crystal clear gold with several foamy fingers of bright-white head. This stays fairly rich looking, leaving a good bit of sticky lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma smells floral and spicy with a fresh earthy citrus component to it. Fresh grains mix in to give the nose an earthy and bready twang. The taste is similar, with a tight grassy and spicy bitterness that spreads fresh earthy citrus and light herbal flavors out across the tongue. The malt is a bit more subdued than it is in the aroma, adding a tight grainy tanginess across the back but otherwise allowing the hops to take center stage here. This finishes dry with a lingering spicy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a tight crispness that pops the flavors a bit in the mouth. I appreciate that the body has a bit of beef to it. Helps prop the profile up rather nicely on the palate. This was a solid take on a Golden Ale with a well balanced emphasis on those fresh hops yet I could still see this being rather accessible to someone who doesn’t always care for hoppy beers either. D.C. Brau nails another one!
