Endless Summer Ale

64 oz growler from Bruisn’ Ales. Thanks J & J.
Opens with an encouraging release of gas with a loud “pphhtt”! Crystal clear, light golden pour with a very nice head. Some decent lace as well. Carbonation is on the high side, but completely in line with the style.
Nose reveals a touch of grassy herbal hops.
Tastes are quite bitter. Almost a Saaz like pils finish as well. Finishes dry and bitter too.
This is a surprisingly bitter beer which is not necessarily a bad thing. It has more character than I was expecting and definitely fits the profile for a summer, hot weather sessionable beer. I use the word “sessionable” with caution since I don’t know the ABV. I’d like to know what it is. It seems like it IS sessionable, I just we’ll see! Dry ending fitting for the pseudo pils style that the beer imparts.
Very light drinking and I would say this is very enjoyable in the context of the weather and the style. The organic angle adds to the experience as well and Pisgah proves that they have a wide portfolio.
