Karl Strauss Full Suit Belgian-Style Brown Ale
From Karl Strauss Brewing – A quality session this time of year calls for a Fullsuit. The frigid North Pacific Current rolls in, generating first-class swells and mild hypothermia. While a few brave souls zip up and paddle out with no hesitation, most of us stay on dry land and salute their commitment with a winter warmer of a different kind.
Karl Strauss Brewing – Full Suit Belgian-Style Brown Ale – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 6.3% abv.
Appearance: Pours a clear dark amber brown with a white pin stripe for head.
Aroma: Fruity Belgian yeast,dry bready malt and a slight sweet cherry note.
Taste: Bread crust, fruity yeast, both of which remind me of a doppelbock. Finishes bitter.
Mouthfeel: Low to medium carbonation. Medium bodied.
Overall: A nice new beer from Karl Strauss. If you were bummed years ago on Red Trolley or Endless Summer Light, its time to revisit the folks who are now making this and Tower 10 IPA.
