No, there isn’t any birch syrup in the brew. A Best Bitter with the bold, citrus-like flavors of Centennial and Cascade hops. Each keg is dry-hopped to give the additional nose that will satisfy any hop-head. This is very much a “session beer,” with a an ABV of around 4.5%. It is truly the signature beer of the brewmaster.

I'm sure there are a few others... but Homer doesn't bottle so keep that in mind.

Apples, bitterness, medium carbonation. I enjoyed this beer but it had a slightly awkward aftertaste (364 characters)

Picked up in a growler from the brewery in Homer. I've seen a few Homer Brewing beers around town but don't remember if this was one readily available.

It pours a dark orange color, slightly hazy color to it.

The aroma is hoppy bitter, grapefruit flavors like a good IPA.

The taste is more like an IPA too, but with a bit of a malty aftertaste to it. Not super strong and bitter but very nice balance.

Another solid beer from these guys, amazing that a town like Homer, AK can have a brewery putting out solid beers but back home in Baton Rouge, at 100x the size, we have none. (584 characters)

from the long-buried notes..

Did not realize this was 4.5 brew, my respect for the flavor has increased even further.

cloudy amber with a quick offwhite head that moves quickly away to a thin lace.
grass and citrus, a little bit of malt. the grass is strong, citrus background with a grainy malt aroma.
pretty tasty, present bitterness but not overpowering 40-50 IBUS probably, little bit of grass and citrus. dextrinous malt presence, probably why I didn't realize the low abv. I had figured this was round 6 or so.
tasty overall, perhaps my favorite of their selection. I really wanted these guys to be brewing amazing shit, but they don't have to, the beautiful town supports them (as they should) and their beer isn't bad, I just gots high hopes. (752 characters)
