BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
cartonbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Described by the brewer as more of an American Pale Ale. It's not an India Pale Ale.

Boat Beer is designed to be complex enough to merit drinking a few without being crippled by alcohol. Kolsch yeast and German malts are combined to be crisp and refreshing, while a generous amount of American hops have been added to keep it remarkable. Expect it to dance out of the glass with a whack of grapefruit and open into a crisp, stony tangle of white and yellow fruit with pine and moss notes. An IPA for everyday drinking, drink boat beer when you are thirsty from softball, fishing, or explaining why your team is best.

Session Ale
ABV: 4.2% | IBU: 35 | SRM: 3.5

"journey began 1/22/16" so it's a week old.

canned 6/27/16, it's 7/2/16 so hell yeah! got a case from the brewery.

pours light gold and hazy with a thick head.

smell is sweet, nice fruit.

taste is full, lots of sweetness and almost a slight tart then finishes bitter. full taste for a 4.2% beer. nice bitterness, tastes like hop pellets.

overall it's a really drinkable and light beer. my favorite low abv beer.

One of the best sessions brews out there. . . Will be picking up several cases this summer at the brewery!!! So unique with the kolsch yeast and tons of hop flavors. I can't quite wrap my mind around how they managed to get this much hop flavor with so little og!

A nice easy drinking summer beer. It is exactly what it claims to be, a great beer for out on a boat on a hot day. Good flavor, still "sessionable."
