6/3/12 Beer of the Day - Lancaster Brewing Company Amish Four Grain Pale Ale

The beer of the day was Lancaster Brewing Company Amish Four Grain Pale Ale. I wanted to start refining my beer drinking skills and knowledge so I have been reading more and learning more about this concoction we call beer. I never knew the importance of glass and temperature but after reading different articles I decided that I should start trying to pay more attention and do more research before I try a beer. So before I had this beer I researched proper glassware for American Pale Ale. I had two choices either mug or pint. I chose pint because it holds more beer than my mug and I was in a pint kinda mood. As for temperature my quick research yielded very little so I decided just to have it at whatever it came out the fridge so I would say it was nicely chilled. I first sampled and spelled the aroma out of a small snifter before pouring into a pint to get a better feel for the aroma. The temperature was at 39.7 degrees with a small 1/2' head and a foamy off white appearance. The head lacing was fair and it dissipated quickly. The carbonation was lively with a hazy clarity and a copper color. The taste and aroma reminded me of the sweetness of butterscotch with a moderate flavor. The finish length was average with a watery mouth feel and a back tongue hit. There was virtually no body lacing and overall this was just a good to great beer that me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.
