As the weather warms the importance of quenching people’s thirsts likewise rises. To that end, Baird Brewing gladly announces the debut of a brand new Baird Classic Beer Series seasonal brew -- Fuggle Summer Ale. "Fuggle" is the name of a traditional British hop and as Baird Fuggle Summer Ale is hopped solely with Fuggle, hence the beer’s name. Fuggle Summer Ale is brewed stylistically in the tradition of English summer ales. In addition to Maris Otter pale ale malt, twenty percent of the grist bill derives from malted English wheat which lends a crisp and tartly refreshing quality to the brew. Fuggle Summer Ale greets the imbiber in deep tones of amber gold. The color enjoys a good clarity which hints at the beer’s refreshing character. In the glass, Fuggle Summer Ale is richly aromatic. We detect notes of honeyed fruit with hints of lemon. In the mouth, the medium body belies the robustness of flavor. The finish is sprite, dry and cleansingly bitter. ABV is approximately 4.7%.

on cask at the nakameguro taproom, tokyo. amber with no head but some light lacing, earthy, doughy aroma with some wet hay character, hints of doughy caramel, modest bitterness, a good interpretation of the style but a bit bland compared to some of their other offerings

KyotoLefty (8121) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2008
On tap at Nakameguro. Maris Otter, wheat, amber, crystal malts. Real ale. 28 IBU. Light Amber color with lace head. Huge fuggles aroma with a touch of malt. Flavor of hops, with a medium malt, caramel, a touch of wheat, chocolate and citrus fruit. Caramel chocolate finish with decent malt and a lot of hops. The hops dominate, but nicely balanced. Good, delicate malt character. Smooth, and served in the good temperature. A bit too light flavored, but a nice summer drink.

Light amber color. Citrusy nose with some apple characteristics, plus some subtle winey notes. Light, hoppy body. Fruity aggressive bitter finish. Nice and refreshing, with some character.
