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.

Pale straw body.very nice thick lacing.

Clean malt. Very light hops in the nose. Clean. Fresh flowers

Tasty. Light. Bready. Herbal. Vague citrus towards the end. Light malty lingering finish. Semi dry aftertaste. Very nice taste. Light tasting yet slightly complex.

I could pound this stuff and enjoy the flavor at the same time. Great beer.

Sample from the brewery.

LOOK: Pale golden, perfect clarity, good lacing all around

SMELL: Fresh baguette, herbal hop, clean, sweet grains, herbal hops

TASTE: Creamy smoothness, moderate body, clean, grainy, bready, leans dry, oat softness, balanced bitterness, herbal, leafy, woody hops, bone dry finish, semi-clean after taste

A few gulps in, very impressive. The balance and dryness builds up the drinkability. Wheat and oat add the element of creaminess and a bit of depth on the way down. A smaller brew but being all malt it was great to see a very liberal hand for hopping here. Cheers to Newburgh for helping redefine this style. 16oz tall boys would be a treat if they get into canning.

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.

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

I had the honor of tasting this beer at TAP-NY and got it at the brewery in a Growler as well.

The brew pours a nice clear golden color with a nice white head.

The aroma is a little hoppy and sweet.

The Taste is excellent. The beer starts off with a little hoppy bitter pine flavor that leads into the nice creamy taste you get in the middle. The malt oat combo that gives the beer its creamy taste is very unique and something i have never tasted in a brew. The finish is nice and malty sweet and leaves your palate clean.

The mouth feel is just right. It is not heavy and a very sessionable beer.

Overall this is one of my new favorite beers. I have gotten a few growlers of it already and plan on keeping it on hand at all times. Newburgh BC is doing some good things down on the waterfront!
