Posted by Mike
2012 batch, from a 16 oz. can, served in a wheat glass
RateBeer: 61 / Beer Advocate: 76 / Untappd: 3 caps

LOOK

Light hazy golden color with about a half inch of head and moderate lacing.

SMELL

A light malty sweetness with a bready yeast aroma

FEEL

Moderate carbonation. A little creaminess.

TASTE

Very much the same as the aroma. Sweet at the start with a bready yeast finish.

OVERALL

A very solid blonde ale. Very light, drinkable and refreshing. Kyle and I had the pleasure of meeting the guys from Finch a few weeks ago at Dirty Frank’s here in Columbus. The Golden Wing that I had that night had a little more of a hop bite to it and less yeasty qualities which I think I preferred. This batch is a little more in category with a lower IBU and still very good. I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s next from these guys. I’d especially like to get my hands on some of their Imperial Red, “Fascist Pig.”
