Farmhouse Summer Ale by Flying Fish Brewing Company pours a beautiful golden yellow with a small but nice head and the aromas a mild and it is hard to tell if this is a golden ale or a Saison with the subtle spicy hints in both the aroma and the first sips. I noticed a hint of malt followed with an almost light hint of lemon and spice. At only 4.6% AVB and with an IBU of 15.1 this makes for a very drinkable Summer ale that is only available in the very early months of Summer. Farmhouse Summer Ale by Flying Fish Brewing Company is very light but has a nice easy aroma and flavor for help to convert you mass produced beer drinkers to a quality ale. I look forward to trying many other Flying Fish Brewing Company brews as this and their Red are both really enjoyable.
What a wonderful blonde ale also called a Golden Ale with a nice caramel smell that gives a great white head when poured. Lovely gold color with a unfiltered haze that is always welcomed in quality tasting craft brews as clarity is nice but flavor is king. This is a local brewery that is recent addition to the Craft Brewers of the world of craft brewing but they are already beginning to make a name for themselves. With only 5.2% ABV and nice subtle 23 in IBU this could be a great Summer session beer. I also would recommend this quality Blonde Ale (Golden Ale) to any of your friends drinking the mass market lager crap as this beer does have a lot going on when it comes to flavor but I think any beer drinker, and I do many ANY beer drinker with a nice food pairing would love this as either a starter for the night or their new “Go To” beer. Sadly Veterans Untied also released a limited release Naughty Rye Pale Ale that was one of the best session rye pale ales I’d ever had and I can only hope they will eventually reconsider and maybe even can it as it was only available locally on tap.
