Spicy, fruity and smooth, this is a great blend of a Belgian Golden Ale and an American Pale Ale.

Aroma of spicy yeast, lemongrass, citrus and sweetness. Taste os spicy. Peppery and lightly bitter. Citrus and lemongrass with loads of spicy yeast. Light bodied with a thin and slick texture. Super fizzy carbonation and a decently long finish.

Draught from Earl’s in Harlem. Gold pour, mine was almost smokey/rauchy; hops, very drinkable overall.

I assume that this is similar if not the same to St. Gowanus so I’ll let a local admin alias it (it is listed as Belgian Pale Ale on Kelso’s website). On tap as Kelso Belgian Pale Ale (5.5%ABV). Pours with a hazed golden orange hued body with a thick, massive off-white head with good lace and retention. Aromas are of orange, very mild esters and phenols, musty, hay and a straw like malt profile. Kind of boring. Flavors are nicely phenolic yeast up front, sage, earthy, peppery and mildly hopy. Straw and grainy malt structure. Lively bubbles and dry. Interesting beer that is not distinctly any style (I wouldn’t call it a traditional Belgian Pale Ale). Good.
