In this beer blog, Lake Placid Craft Brewing Ubu Ale is being featured on this posted. This is one of my brews from my latest Beer Of The Month. If you read my earlier beer blog on this brewery, you are up to speed with this brewery. If you have not read it, please, read that beer blog to get to know this great New York State brewery. Let us get into a beer that President Clinton use to order cases to the White House when he was in office.
It has a beautiful brown color without a head on this English Strong Ale. There is really no smell but maybe a strong malty to it. The taste is a carbonation sweet burn malty with dry aftertaste. This is a sipping beer to relax and watch television.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
The mountain village of Lake Placid was once home to a legendary chocolate lab named Ubu, the biggest dog you’ve ever seen with an uncanny nose for great beer. Deep garnet red in color this English-Style Ale is tribute to the legend of Ubu. It features a smooth, rich maltiness complemented by just the right amount of hops. Here’s to the legend!
Here is a description from their website (www.ubuale.com):

Closing out, the last time I had this brewery’s brews was from my Beer Of The Month that was months ago. When I did had them, I fall in love with their beers. I really wanted to try this brew and I was a little upset it was not part of my last Beer Of The Month. I was pretty happy to see their Amber and Ubu Ale in this Beer Of The Month. It has a great story with one of our presidents enjoying this beer while in office. I have to say this beer did not let me down. It has a nice malty snap but just enough hops to make it a great brew. If you are in New York area around Lake Placid, please go check this brewery out. Please, let me know what you think about this brewery and brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
