Special Edition – White Ale

12oz single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Interesting as I found this beer more substantial than the Weyerbacher Blanche that I drank alongside it – I was expecting the opposite to be true.
Mendocino has a habit of producing so fairly average (if solid) beers, followed by the occasional really good one. For me, the White Ale was one of the better efforts.
Pour was a murky, slightly orange affair with a solid head with good retention and lace. The beer looked solid in the Southampton Weizen glass.
Nose gives hints of what is to come in the taste with some significant orange notes and the usual spices. The beer drinks a touch bigger than one might think. Even a bit of viscosity in the body to back up the citrus based taste. Definitely more body and more depth of taste than many in the style, it drank nicely.
Very enjoyable, and a bit of a bigger brew than I was anticipating all around. Solid effort.
