Trophy Brewing Co. Foam Party Pilsner

Trophy Brewing Co. Foam Party Pilsner, 5.0% ABV purchased from Pop The Top Bottle Shop is brewed on a larger recipe off Trophy Brewings 20 barrel system designed for maximum foam and crispness using a technique called ‘spunding’ which Trophy has allowed for some natural carbonation to build up during fermentation creating a higher level on the finish for supreme head retention. Foam Party pours a golden yellow color with a three-four finger foamy white head that sticks around for a while leaving good lacing behind. There is a crisp malty aroma with light sweet notes wafting into the nose with a nice crisp semi-sweet malted flavor washing over your tongue with a brightness to the overall flavor. Foam Party Pilsner finishes bright refreshing with a nice malty sweetness and an aftertaste that is a little bready/biscuity with a light mouthfeel. Trophy Brewing Co. Foam Party Pilsner is a great example of a taste Pilsner, one that is an A. I recommend trying this as I will over and over again. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!      

Throwback Thursday: Avery Brewing Company Elle’s Brown Ale

Originally posted March 28th, 2015

Brown Ales are unrated as a style of beer in my opinion. I believe that they don’t get as much credit as they should. I love brown ale a lot. They can be sweet, malty, nutty and drinkable. Here we have Avery Brewing Co. in Boulder Colorado, Ellie’s Brown Ale, 5.5% ABV. This beer is named after Avery Brewing’s beloved chocolate lab. Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, hops, and yeast are used. This is another beer delivered by Brewpublik ( Ellie’s Brown Ale pours a deep russet color with a four-finger pillowy off white head that slowly dissipates into a fine lacing. I found very little light coming through the glass with some carbonation bubbles. The aroma is sweet with some malt and chocolate with a hint of nutty aroma. The taste on Ellie’s Brown Ale is a bit sweet brown sugar at first, and then you get a bit of the chocolate with some nutty flavors and a hint of vanilla. Ellie’s Brown Ale taste is just as brown ale should be. This brown ale has a smooth sweeter finish and nice chocolate and brown sugar after taste that lingers just enough for full enjoyment. The mouthfeel is somewhat light to barely medium. I like brown ales a lot and Ellie’s Brown Ale is no different. I give this an A. It is just what brown ale is supposed to be. It is easy to drink with a great tasting flavor. Ellie’s Brown Ale is something that you could drink a few and really enjoy it. The flavor is not so bold that one is all you could enjoy. It is sessionable brown ale. I recommend that you go and try Avery Brewing Co. Ellie’s, Brown Ale. It is good! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
