The Brewers’ Art

Solidarity Summer Ale was brewed with the intention of being an easy drinking ale suitable for the very hot summer months of DC. Upon taking a whiff the nose is greeted with nice mineral-like nose with hints of crackers. Appearance is a light, crisp pale straw hue. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing with minimal bitterness leaning more towards the light toasty malt notes of the brew. Flavors favor the malt and yeast on this one with mellow "cellar-like" notes contributed by the low fermentation temps employed make this one an easy drinker and a perfect quencher for the tropical-like summers we have here in the nations capital.
