On tap at the Blind Tiger and served in a pint glass.

Oishi pours a clear lemon yellow, darkening towards tangerine at less well lit angles. There are maybe two fingers of fluffy white foam capping the beer, and solid head retention and lacing are displayed. The aroma is surprisingly potent and consists of lemon and a little bit of cracked black pepper. The flavor profile leads off with a bit of crisp cracker maltiness before those wonderful Sorachi Ace hops come in. The back end is primarily a nice refreshing lemon flavor, but there's a little bit of pepper playing off it in the background. The body is super light, stopping just short of watery, and it's paired with postively efferevescent carbonation. I'm a big fan of Sorachi Ace, and so I was very much looking forward to a table version of that beer. The result in Oishi is one of the most pleasantly flavorful session strength beers I've ever had. A great beginning tot he Worshipful Company of Brewers.

Had a glass at the brewery. It's the first of Brooklyn's Worshipful Company of Brewers series, described as table version of the stronger Sorachi Ace farmhouse ale. The body is light and very drinkable, thanks in part to the dry, biting finish that's rich enough to satisfy my beer-geek needs, but borderline tart and drawing me back for more. The hops provide a peppery lemon that builds toward the finish, while the pale malts add a slight, crisp toast under the herbal citrus. Great beer, I hope this gets upgraded to a Brewmaster's Reserve.
