A buddy of mine and I were on our annual baseball trip in NYC this year so of course we were sampling as many local brews as possible. This one sounded excellent for taking in a ballgame so I ordered it up.

This beer pours a cloudy, orangish-golden color that shows off moderate carbonation and is topped with a thick, frothy white head that dissipates slowly to a rocky layer with a neck that is retained for a good long while. 3.75/5 The aroma reminds me more of Belgian Pale Ale than a Blonde Ale with orange peel and coriander spiciness really coming out nicely as well as a bit of a grainy undertone. There is a light fruitness other than orange peel that comes through as well, but it is hard to distinguish specific notes. 3.5/5 The flavor profile is fairly deep for the abv with the same notes as the aroma coming through along with a bit of funk and yeast. Bitterness is very light and doesn't linger after swallowing. 3.5/5 This is a lightly carbonated beer that is slightly dry and prickly with the dryness lingering lightly after swallowing. 4/5 This is a good beer for gameday and sits nicely even on a hot day. It is not crazy complex or crazy simple, rather falling somewhere in between with plenty of aroma and flavor to satisfy. 3.75/5

Decanted from a 12 oz can into conical pint glass: serial number 6 11 29 B2 BE – no obvious production information.
A: Pours a semi-hazy, dark golden color with a quarter inch, white head. Low head retention and little or no Belgian lacing.
S: Aromas of grasses, earth, and spices predominate.
T: Clearly very dry. Light malt contributes little to the taste, which is characterized by a spiciness up front, then moderate bitterness, present through to a crisp close.
M: Light bodied, the carbonation fades pretty fast (< 5 minutes).
O: A basic ale. Drinkable and likely amenable to pairing with a variety of foods, but not very memorable.

Hmm, a Kolsch-inspired Golden Ale? I see it as a flagship that hopefully is a crowdpleaser.

A- Can to becher with a clear pale golden body. Rising atop the brew is a fluffy, foamy white cap ending up at about one centimeter high with fair retention. Head dies to a medium belt around the edges and leaves minimal spotty lacing.

S- Basically just raw pale Pils barley or two-row with a hint of sweetness and what reminds me of lager funk but this is an ale. A bit bready and minimal generic Euro hops.

T- Again, a big portion of the flavor is from the base grain, like freshly mashed/raw barley. Very much more yeast influenced for me here with a bread, light beer funk and a hint of pale fruit sweetness akin to pear. The hops pick it up a bit more here with an obvious herbal bitterness with spicy and earthy hints.

MF- Puffy and foamy light end body which comes off just the slightest bit thin but not really watery. Very high level of carbonation and an herbal bitterness in the end.

For me it is not the cleanest ferment but for an everyday flagship that you would expect to see available at all kinds of establishments it is not bad and I could see how this would appeal to a wide variety of people. A bit less grainy and a cleaner ferment would make this a great one to buy for any gathering.

DATE: Abita pint... OCCASION: Cavs/Warriors Game Four... do the Cavs have an "easy" one in them? Or is this history for both teams? GLASSWARE: Abita pint... pours a clear, sallow golden body with a modicum of bubbles... the sizzle of the the single-finger off-white head to a coral reach of lacing... swampiness across the top of the head... lemon citrus, crisp dank earthiness that is slightly off-putting... not a lot of wheat suggestions here.... trying to sense some spice or hops, but a bitterness pervades... first sip is smooth, slightly effervescent, with second sips invited quickly... late maltiness is crisp like a cracker... flavor is malty, with some medicinal elements mixing with melon and flat flowery hops.... not sure I am getting this one correctly--an ale? too funky and quirky... too malty in spots, not enough wheat, etc.... a risner without a positive residual... not feeling this a bit... first taste of the Bronx Brewery... maybe better things are ahead...
