Very Good
Modern GulpieModern Gulpie
Notes: Modern Gulpie is brewed with a blend of very pale domestic and imported base malts, and hopped judiciously with Hallertauer from one of our friends in Bavaria. Fermented with our dear house Lager strain, and cold conditioned for a spell before packaging. Just somethin' nice to have to drink! You know how & where to drink these =) 4.0% abv. Notes of fresh dough, mineral water, light honey, and Springtime herb garden.

A - Pale gold pour with dense creamy white foam and moderate carbonation.

S - Crisp, biscuity malt with a slight bit of graininess and light earthy citrus.

T - Crisp, crackery, grainy malt grain with earthy hops over the top with a slight bit of spiciness. Ends with a crisp, lingering citrus and pine bitterness that scrubs away any sweet malt residue.

M - Light medium body with prickly carbonation and dry on the palate.

O - Tastes as advertised and perfect for a hot day.

Clear light pale yellow straw colored with some lacing. Maybe served too cold. Almost no aroma.
Easy drinking. No sweetness. Dry but not IPA hoppy dry. Could be a bit sharper in the finish. Some Germans hops but low.

Tastes like a really good light beer.

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright head that left a thin head covering the surface and some specks of bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops are present in the nose along with hints of spicy hops.
T: The taste is a near image to the smell except that the hops also contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite sessionable. While the aromas in the smell and taste aren't overly strong, it is very drinkable considering its light body.

12oz can into a pint glass. Canned 10/19/20, so 6 months old. Bit long in the tooth for a relatively recent can release in Wilkes Barre.

Looks very nice. Glassy pale yellow body with slow streams of carbonation. Bright white head shrinks to a thick ring and covering, leaving scattered lacing.

Sweet floral aroma.

On tasting, clean, malty, sweet. Also quite dry, with a faint metallic touch.

Mouth medium, finish dry and faintly metallic.

Overall, for a light lager, not too bad. Trying more of this style, and figured going with one of the top brewers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was a good idea.

Very, very tame. Drinkable, quenchable but not much depth to this lager, think lawnmower beer. TH has quality brews but this one better served for your non-craft drinking guests.

This one makes Raul wanna bang his drum. Straight up Bulls on Parade style, Raul can get down to this. Drinking tbis beer with the sunset, as the sunset looks back at Raul - let a e tranquil together.

Clear golden in body topped with a white cap. Aroma of lemon skin, citrus, grass, and some floral. Tastes of lemon skin, citrus, grass, light pine, some floral, and mild bitterness towards the dry finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation.
