The first known recorded beer was brewed roughly three thousand years before the founding of New Paltz. The town may have changed, but this fine lager never will. This beer is brewed for those ready to plunge into a fuller flavor style of craft beer. The crimson color is from caramel malt, which imparts a sweet malt flavor that balances the domestic and imported hops.

Draft at the brewpub. Malty aroma. Amber colour and later leaving lace, malty aroma. Drinkable and about right for the style.Carbonation suitable. Now this is a transition beer.

j12601 (9562) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Pours a coppery brown. Aroma is rather laid back and hard to detect much of anything going on. Malty and light bodied leads into a strong bitter finish.

Banal pale fruit floating in dry resin canals...Paltry bitterness ignorant of sultry visions...Their weakest offering that evening...

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 4, 2012
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a clear deep amber with a thin tan head that faded to a film by the second sip and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and not much else. The flavor is malt along with dried grass. Dries out fairly quickly on the palate with the dryness lingering for about thrity seconds. Kind of an oddball lager.
