An award winning classic London-styled Nut Brown Ale, this malty brew is balanced out nicely with Willamette and East Kent Goldings hops. Look for toffee, milk chocolate, notes of coffee, a bit of maple syrup, and a gentle hop spiciness on the nose. Caramel & toffee maltiness dominate the flavor profile, with nutty notes and an underlying smokiness that’s just barely perceptible. Finish begins with light bitterness and ends slightly sweet, with a walnut-like dryness. This extraordinarily well-balanced session beer will go well with roast beef or Camarones á la Diabla!
The U.S. microbrewery renaissance really picked up steam in the early to mid 1990s. For this reason, it’s not often we find microbrewed beers, particularly from the east coast, that were around in the 80s. The breweries that did kick things off were pioneers of sorts, laying the foundation for the tremendous selection of top notch microbrews we currently enjoy. One such brewery was the Wild Goose Brewing Company. As one of the first microbreweries on the East Coast, we owe them a debt of gratitude for being brave enough to challenge the mass produced macro-brewing Goliaths. Since firing up their brewkettle back in 1989, their traditional British-style beers have been recognized as some of the finest east of the Rockies. Over the years, they have gained the praise of beer lovers nationwide, and there’s good reason behind their success—what with their original brewmaster having been under the tutelage of industry legend Alan Pugsley, and having learned his trade at Peter Austin. For anyone who doesn’t know Alan Pugsley, he has helped design and set up some of the best microbreweries in the United States including Shipyard, Geary’s, and Old Nutfield, just to name a few. His attention to detail and obvious knowledge of hops and malts is clearly apparent to beer lovers and beer judges alike. Many of the original recipes created in those early days are still produced exactly the same way today, but they’re brewed by a new generation of microbrewing zealots; the entire Wild Goose beer line was ultimately acquired by a worthy successor: The Frederick Brewing Company in Frederick, MD. Named one of America’s Top 20 Breweries by Food & Wine magazine, they faithfully continue to brew the outstanding Wild Goose line in homage to the great beers that helped usher in a new era of beer drinking in the states.
