Notes / Commercial Description:
"Sterling" - a super unfiltered yellow/orange hued ale- balanced evenly between top cropped house yeast fruity esters & zesty Sterling Pellet Hop spice. The hops were harvested & Pelletized at Gro-Moore farms in Henrietta NY. Sterling hops are a lower alpha hybrid of saaz hops (used predominantly in pilsners for zest/pine & delicate bitterness) and Brewer's Gold ( an early aromatic strain known for its floral qualities w/ slight fruit). The malt is mostly "special pale" from Flower City Malt Lab in Rochester, NY along w/ a hand full of unmalted NY white wheat. Aromas of pineapple, wheat, pine, green, yeast. Flavors of pine wood, clove, banana, and fresh cut flowers.

It should be known that while I live in Los Angeles I am somewhat partial to Plan Bee beers. I generally like everything about its style and culture. This one gives me no reason to change my mind. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head and looks great. Assertive fruit and floral nose is inviting and taste doesn't disappoint with honey, floral and light earthy tones with a dry clean and bright finish, leaving you wanting more.
