Despite vapid India Pale Lager tag, simple moderation better recalls German and Czech lagers with its carapils malting and grassy Perle-Magnum-Tettnang hop design. Raw-grained minerality picks up salty corn respite, floral honeyed tinge and zesty lemon spritz.
Dissipating dark candi syruping bedevils sweet beet-sugared aspect, veering enigmatic quadruple-styled Belgian ale in different direction as dewy peat soiling and mildly soured dried fruiting come to the fore above its frail pilsner-oats spine. Soured fig-raisin conflux marginalizes pecan-buttered banana-plantain stint and wispy vanilla jaunt. Needs better and broader quad-like flavor profile.
On tap at Poor Henry’s, tremendous S’mores knockoff perfect for sweet-toothed brew hounds. Fudgy Graham Crackered marshmallow toasting and dark-roast brown chocolate sweetness lead the way while creamy vanilla, burnt caramel, coffee and cocoa nibs adjuncts receive maple syrupy molasses coating. Tertiary chocolate mousse, Kahlua, spiced rum, bourbon, black cherry, dark toffee, cola nut and hazelnut illusions add depth to rich dessert treat.
Cold-press coffee endows soft-toned farmhouse-styled moderation, subtly hovering above wheat-flaked honey malting, teasingly tart lemon souring and desiccated barnyard minerality. Try in lieu of a lemon-peeled espresso for soothing after dinner retreat.
