He'Brew Messiah Bold Brown Ale

Brewery: Schmaltz Brewing Co.
Style: Brown Ale
Location: San Francisco/New York
Brewery Website
Rating: B-

Today's tasting is the He'Brew Messiah Bold Brown Ale. The Messiah Bold is dark brown in color, similar to black coffee with just a hint of red. There is a foamy head that is light brownish tan in color. The nose has sweet cereal and roasted notes. There are also faint floral aromas detectable.

On the palate, the Messiah Bold has a rich flavor with both acidity and sweetness. There is a bready malt flavor with a touch of bitterness as well. There are grapefruit and berry notes present, highlighted by the acidity and sweetness. The finish is bread with a good amount of lambic-like acidity. Overall, the Hebrew Messiah Bold Brown Ale is a decent beer, but there is just a bit too much acidic "twang" here for my taste.
