Fine auburn-browned “Abbey”-styled medium body in a can. Belgian candi-sugared yeast sweetness reinforced by mildly creamed chocolate malting as well as burgundy-dried raisin and banana fruiting. Wispy chestnut, butternut and pecan undertones add subtle warmth to rounded Belgian-styled New Yorker.
On tap at Grand Cru – Rhinebeck, briskly dry-hopped medium body brings luxurious yellow grapefruit-peeled orange rind tang to resinous piney hop bittering and sharp citric-spiced crystal malt sugaring.
Finicky bourbon sugaring affects sweet caramel-toffee-vanilla conflux as well as dried wood base. Tertiary black cherry, black grape and fig notions fade into the backdrop of stylishly moderate sedation.
On tap at Craft House, sharp citrus hop bittering outdoes advertised rye-spiced malting as floral-perfumed sweetness contrasts piney bark-dried astringency, mild plastique groat and yellow grapefruit tang.
Apprehensive ‘classic bohemian pils’ in a can stays mild as soured lemon spicing recedes above tentative grassy hop astringency and buttery biscuit malts. Slight diacetyl acidity lowers its appeal. On tap at Pennings Farm, easygoing moderate body combines lightly toasted mineral graining, mild earthen hop pungency, grassy citric herbage and raw-honeyed pale malting.
