Ninkasi Commonwealth Ale


Brewed by Ninkasi Brewing Company
Eugene, Oregon USA
Style: Amber Ale | Ratings: 1 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.1%
On the bottle: Commonwealth Ale is a flavorful session ale brewed in honor of the historic orientation toward beer as food. We added Amaranth, Millet and Teff-grains that nourished the earliest civilizations-and Tamalpais Barley grown and malted in the Willamette Valley. Tasting Notes: A medium light bodied ale with mild nutty character, Commonwealth is balanced by earthy and grassy hop aromas and flavors. Enjoy this easy to drink malty delight, while supporting the arts and helping feed those less fortunate. Commonwealth satisfies the body and soul! Enjoy! Malty notes up front. Bready, toasted, slightly nutty malt flavor from the Tamalpais and other specialty malts. Very mild hop balance that is a bit earthy and grassy. Pleasant medium light body that finished crisp and easy.
