New Beer Friday 5/6/16
New Belgium ~ Heavy Melon - Pleasant watermelon flavors that are almost at Jolly Rancher levels. Lime comes next adding some balance to the sweetness. The finishes is quenching and fruity. If you have a sensitivity to cucumber these watermelon flavored beers my remind you of just how closely related these two gourds are. 5.0% ABV @ Slackwater
Proper ~ Leisurebrau India Vienna Lager - The nose is floral, grassy with some dry cracker aromas. The taste is bitter up front, with pithy citrus peels, grass and pine. Cracker-y malts with some mild caramel sweetness provides a nice bed underneath. This is a very hoppy lager forward with a strong bitterness throughout. Probably my favorite new brew from Proper Brewing. 5.0% ABV @ Proper Brewing, Beer Bar
Squatters ~ El Niño - Haven't tried this yet. This unfiltered Mexican style lager. 4.0% ABV @ Squatters
We will discus these beers and other beer related topics this afternoon on KBER 101 with Mick and Allen at 3:30pm.
