We'll be hanging at Mad Fox on Saturday afternoon so I figrued we try some Mad Fox beers all this week and give you a chance to come hang with us (and get a free tour of the brewery).
Look-straw yellow and crystal clear.
Smell-Crisp and malty.
Taste-Dry, clean, crisp. Malty throughout
Mouth-Light bodied. I love the finish. Dry, toasty, and slightly bitter.
Overall-I really enjoy this beer. They also have an unfiltered version of this that is also good...but I prefer this much more. A great warm weather beer but the finish gives it enough bite to work throughout the year.
Today's word is: Cologne
One of our signature brews, this German-style golden ale originates in the Köln (Cologne) region of Germany. Restrained hop bitterness is produced by the use of German noble Hersbrucker hops, which add a subtle fresh piney or spicy note. The authentic Kölsch yeast produces a clean crisp beer with lager aroma notes. German malts provide the backbone.
Sideline announcers are the worst. Seriously, what do 99% of them bring to the table.
I'll answer that for you.
Here's exhibit Y on that theory as this asshat congratulates Matthew Perry for losing his job on the hit NBC show, Go On. Mistakes happen. I get that. But when Perry asks him if he's referring to the cancellation of his show, Asshat just nods furiously as if that's TOTALLY what he means.
BONUS: A jackass photo bombing the interview with his Flyers jersey. Sweet move since it's a playoff game that doesn't involve that team...but yeah...they're #1 dude. Sure.
I've never had anything but Blue Moon from Blue Moon (you know, the usual Blue Moon). I do not like Blue Moon but that's no reason to hold it against this beer.
Look-reddish brown. Not much of a head.
Smell-i get the malt and wheat. Not much orange in my nose.
Taste-a hint (a very small hint) of orange on the lips.
Mouth-very nice malt in the mouth with tasty caramel flavor. Medium bodied and very smooth (although I'm tasting this after an IPA so take that with a grain of salt).
Overall-i actually enjoyed this. Great malt taste in the mouth. I really liked the caramel taste. If it had a bit more orange peel flavor, it'd be very good. Give it a whirl.
About Valencia Grove Amber:
Maybe it’s not time to shed that winter coat just yet, but we’re hoping this beer gets you one step closer. Valencia Grove Amber is for all those in-between days when you try to coax spring out by wearing short sleeves or flip-flops. You’re still cold. We get it. Cozy up with roasted malts, Valencia orange peel, and a touch of wheat for a hint of citrus that’s ripe for the season.
Ummmm, dude...WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?!??!
