Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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!
