Anderson Valley Bahl Hornin’ Wee Geech Pale Ale


Brewed by Anderson Valley Brewing Company
Boonville, California USA
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 43 | Series Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.4%
With Wee Geech, we aimed to satisfy the hop heads out there, while still offering a sessionable and balanced ale. We employed the use of some very characteristic late-hops to provide maximum flavor and aroma without a tongue-scraping bitterness. The aroma hops have a very piney, citrusy, and grassy element which we further emphasized by adding fresh cut lemongrass late in the kettle. It also imparts a spicy ginger character that you may not be able to put your finger on. The malt body was kept simple, clean, and slightly biscuity to let the hops shine through.
