Logs for this venue
Quite hoppy, a fresh-tasting IPA with some extra spice on top from the rye. Tasted a lot more alcoholic than its < 5% ABV would predict, so it wasn't super-quaffable in my opinion. From the name I was hoping for something with a little more cereal to round out the flavor.
I had a hard time pinning down the flavor here. The owner said this also used English ale yeast, and maybe that was throwing me off a little. I'd say -- hoppy, fragrant, a touch of caramel roast on top. Similar hint of booze to the Pale. I never wrapped my head around this, so this suffered a little compared to the others.
Trying out the new brewery in Kirkland - very friendly! This was the best of the flight - a bit of yeasty tartness, like a Kölsch (and I'm told it started out as a Kölsch recipe), but with nice hop fragrance from the dry hopping. The only one of the beers to have a strong cereal finish, and this was a nice one. Very tasty.
