Stillwater-Artisanal Shoegaze Distorted Farmhouse Pale Ale

IMG_4927

Stillwater Artisanal is a quit popular craft brewery in Baltimore, Maryland and brews pretty cool and trendy craft beers, and are sought after by many craft beer geeks. Shoegaze Distorted Farmhouse Pale Ale, 6.0% ABV is a kind of hybrid beer, farmhouse ale, and pale ale together. This beer according to the can is also found in Oslo, Norway. So for all you Norwegians readers you are in luck you might find this near you. Shoegaze Distorted Farmhouse Pale Ale pours a hazy bright yellow color with a two and a half finger white head with decent head retention leaving behind some spotty lacing, and aromas of lemon, but a slightly funky lemon, slight citrus and some faint hop notes come though. You get more of the farmhouse than pale ale on the nose, but there are faint pale ale aromas there. Shoegaze taste has a big funky lemon up front with some smooth hop notes in the middle with a slight hoppy flavor on the end with some slight yet faint citrus flavors though out. This Shoegaze finishes nice with good funkiness, slight lemon and touch of hoppy note and with a funky and slightly hoppy after taste with just a bit of the citrus lemon. I do think Shoegaze drinks like a lighter ABV beer than the 6.0% that is stated on the can. It goes down easy and is refreshing. Shoegaze is something that might go well with summer time weather. I thought that the combination of farmhouse and pale ale melded well together and made for an interestingly tasty balanced beer, and with that said I give Stillwater Artisanal Shoegaze Distorted Farmhouse Pale Ale an A. I picked up this single sixteen ounce can at the Good Bottle Co, for $3.25, here in Charlotte, NC 125 Remount Rd, and I would like to thank them for this great recommendation and I recommend you try Stillwater Artisanal Shoegaze Distorted Farmhouse Pale Ale! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
