Review – Erie Brewing Railbender Ale
Erie Brewing Railbender Ale
Pale mustard color with shades of copper and orange shining through. Moderate head with not much
Malty and biscuity with not much hop smell. The English yeast provides a faint smell of ripened fruits.
Complex malt flavor mingles nicely with the hops. A bit of a sweet taste at first, followed by a more mellow aftertaste.
Not much going on in the mouth. Slightly fizzy with a bit of bitterness on the inside of my cheeks and side of my tongue.
I first tried this beer at the Philly Beer Fest earlier this year and loved it. of all the beers that I tried that day, this one really stood out. I sought out the kind folks at Erie and they were nice enough to send me a few brews for sampling. I loved the Pils and even after knowing I’ve had this beer before, I was terribly excited to try it again with a clean palate and with pen and paper. It did not disappoint. Now, as I am sure was Erie’s intention, I have to head out and grab some to keep in the fridge. Kudos!
