COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
¿Queˊ Beck? is the next release of the Brewer’s Select Series. As you know, the naming system for the BSS is based on the NATO phonetic alphabet. You may not know that the TTB will not allow a brewery to name a beer the name of an existing place if the beer is not made there. So Quebec (pronounced “ka-bec” by the locals there) is out and ¿Queˊ Beck? is in. Its a nice summer refresher with a crackin’ hop character. Its 5.5% ABV and around 20 IBU. It’ll be finished with Cascade and Sorachi Ace hops which will deliver a nice citrus, lemon character.

Tap->honker: pours a medium white head that exhibits great lacing atop a clear, yellow body. Aroma of citrus and straw. Somewhat milky on the palate, moderately bitter, finishing astringently. Not bad, but not great either.

mansquito (3385) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2011
R.F.D. DC tap ($4hh): Pours a orange-gold color with a white head. Aroma was in my opinion the weakest aspect of this beer. It kind of had a sewery smell above the citrus hops. I don’t know it was kind of weird. Taste was moderately bitter, with sharp feeling hops. Aspects of citrus and something I thought might have been pine. In any case, it was drinkable and plenty enjoyable, but nothing to relish for its craft or sophistication.

(bottle, direct from brewery) Mild hop charactor with a taste of lemon. An average session ale for summer.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Draft at London Grill. Pours a clear dark golden orange color with golden tangerine hues and a frothy two finger soap head. Excellent retention, slowly fading into lasting cap that leaves the glass coated with chunks, ring and streaks of soapy lace. Slightly earthy aroma with dry floral hops and faint citrus notes. Mostly lemon peel. Strong malt presence. Kind of bland. Medium bodied and a bit fuller than expects with a dry, slightly bitter hop presence up front that is countered by a subtle pale malt backbone. Hints of alcohol phenols, straw and light fruit. Tastes more like a pale ale. Too malty and and not very citrusy sweet. Pretty bland and disappointing.

dmac (4004) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Draft at Jose Pistolas shared with Dean during RBSG 2011. Poured an okay looking clear golden/orange with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of slight lemons, grass and dry hops. Thin bodied with strong carbonation, pretty much a glass of seltzer. Flavor was just gross, it was like grass and butter. If there was a drain close by this would have went down it. Two sips and gave the rest of the pint to Dean, how he drank this I will never understand.

Clear pale golden color thin white head light sticky lacing .... aroma of sweet malts and light floral hops .... citrusy bitter and floral sorachi hop flavor, little lemon and sweet malts with a bitter floral hop that lingers into a dry hop finish .... a nice sessionable pale ale with balanced subtle flavors

Light citrus hops aroma for this hazy amber pour. Love the Sorachi hops which made this nice and light and sweet. A good refreshing beer.

Draft at Jose Pistoles. Pours out a mostly clear amber with a slight white head. Aroma is of some light lemon, herbs, and some slight sweetness. Taste is lemon, odd herbal notes, maybe parsley, some fresh clipped grass and some other citrus notes.
