3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2009 Appearance: Lightly hazy golden body with a sudsy white head.
Smell: Light, sweet-smelling grain aroma with just a kiss of floral hops.
Taste: Soft, sweet grainy flavor with a floral hop bitterness, all of it reasonably light as expected.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.
Drinkability: It was a true joy to gulp down a few of these after the obnoxious, vulgar expletive-filled day I had yesterday.
Rainwater Cask ƙ/15/08): Golden Number Ale was selected to be the first beer brewed entirely with collected (and filtered) rainwater. A viciously rainy day often makes me want to stay indoors and drink beer, so coming out on a rainy Tuesday evening and a cask of rainwater beer was an easy sell for me!
Appearance: Drawn via a hand-pump by Crawford himself and passed along by the dear bartender, the beer displayed a hazed, flaxen-toned body layered with a two inch-high, dense, white head.
Smell: Crisped pale maltiness paired with some soft, though notable floral notes, a hint of fruitiness, and vague spiciness.
Taste: Light pale malts with a mild, congenial amount of sweetness contained within. Blips from a fruity ester or two lazily glide past the tongue. Floral, faintly spicy hop character with a low bitterness. The beer finishes nicely dry and oh-so soft.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation. Truly, this beer exhibits an exceptionally soft, smooth body.
Drinkability: I’m over here basking in the softness! For me, the combination of mellow flavors and uber-softness makes for a supremely drinkable beer as this was world’s first rainwater beer and I was the first guy to greedily gulp it down and request a second helping.
