@ Prohibition Pig

Hazy blonde color under an attractive, thick, creamy head. Aromas of pale, toasty malt, dough, and light spicy, fruity yeast esters. Nice, toasted malt sweetness in the flavor along with some pale, spicy fruit. Light bodied, super crisp, and extremely drinkable. Very nice...simple, but quite enjoyable. I enjoyed everything I tried from Lost Nation and I hope to pay them a visit next time I'm up in VT.

Takes two pours from the bartender to settle the extensive head. The liquid is cloudy lime-yellow color. Good ring lace. Cloudy as expected.

Pale malt aroma with little Belgian yeast nose. It smells like creamed corn.

Strong corn flavor up front...I'm reminded of buttered popcorn. It's not bad, just surprising. The hop bitterness jumps in to relieve this, but "Belgian" does not come to mind for the flavor except for the ever so slight yeast presence. Good body with an elevated carbonation.

In the end, I like this beer--it tastes good and is unusual.

A: Very light amber; medium sized white head sticks around. Slight haze.

S: Sweet and toasty malt along with yeasty fruitiness. A slight funky edge.

T: Toasty and sweet malts, very tasty Belgiany yeast notes. Pretty dry finish.

M: Medium light body, no astringency, clean dry finish.

O: Fantastic session beer; hits all the right notes.

edit: After a further few months of drinking this beer, I feel the need to revise my rating upward. It's just an outstanding example of an old school farmhouse ale. Full of flavor and you can still walk away in a straight line after having several. A great match for almost any food. Certainly captures the spirit of beer appreciation better than the many barrel aged, 12% ABV, specially treated whatever beers, though I like a few of those too.

Served in a pint glass at the Mad Taco.

Appearance - Clear golden yellow. Huge white head. Beautiful lacing and surface foam.

Smell - Lemony bright yeasty aroma. Some hops. A little yeasty.

Taste - Hop flavor up front. Citrusy. A little soapy. Touch of sweetness. Estery and a bit of grain.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light. Well carbonated. Grainy body as the flavor drops off.

Overall - This isn't the most flavorful beer, but it's tasty and clean.

After a recent revisit to this beer at their brewpub what I found totally blew me away. The most flavorful 4.2% beer I have ever had. Simply amazing!!!
