Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 07-14-2012

Our interpretation of a New York original. Originally brewed by ale breweries to compete with the surging popularity of lager beer, it remains a regional specialty in the Northeast United States. Our version is light- bodied and pale straw color, but uses no corn or rice as many of the original versions did. The result is a supremely malty and refreshing version of a style dear to our hearts.

Great. Smooth, not too hoppy, caramel like aftertaste. Love this beer.

Poured from a pint can with vigor into a Stibinger Bros. Brewing Company Pint Glass.

Sight: A clear golden straw brew with a stark white head. The beer lets out casual bubbles from the bottom of the glass. Once the head settles down, a nice soapy, thin cap rests on top. We’ll call this one about 5 SRM. Lacing forms in gentle rings down the glass; upset only when I take another swig.

Smell: I get a bit of spicy and floral hops plus a twinge of crackery-bready delight. Simple and clean aroma.

Taste: Crisp cracker and piney hops play a duet in my mouth. There is not a huge amount going on with the taste, but I admire beauty in simplicity. Upon further reflection, one might detect a little twang from the ?wheat? the brewery used to provide a little lift on the palate, but more on that in a moment.

Feel: Soft, fluffy, smooth. Good carbonation- that among the elements of its taste keeps one going back for more. Couple this with the moderate abv (4.2%) and taking down two pints of this is an absolute pleasure, not to mention a piece of cake.

Overall: Hats off to you, Newburgh. I feel fortunate to try what is now my favorite beer of this style. Keep up the good work.
