While in Memphis for a Layover, we are going to try a beer from Ghost River. It is their Golden Ale. This is the first time on this blog that this brew and craft brewery. I cannot find any history on this craft brewery from Memphis. They have two all year-long brews and four seasonals. Let us get into this Golden Ale.
It has a slight cloudy golden color with small bubbles going up from the bottom of the glass. The head is a white and constant head. I am not picking up any aroma. The taste is a nice refreshing to lightly carbonated. It has nice lemon to citrus notes. The aftertaste has a light carbonated to citrus finish. It is pretty drinkable.
Here is a description from their website (www.ghostriverbrewing.com):
Munich and caramel malts and German variety hops,
mellow and refreshing
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Leaving Memphis, I was pretty excited to get to Memphis. I wanted to see what craft beers they had on draft at the airport. I have to be honest I was not impressed. There is very few bars in the airport or where I was at in the airport. I saw this one and ordered it. I was pretty excited because I usually like Golden Ales. I will say it is pretty drinkable and refreshing beer. It has a nice head and color to the beer. However, I was not too impressed with it, I just feel the money you invest in this beer. You are not getting your money worth. I just found this beer not that good. I can see people liking this beer and you might be one of them. I am glad I tried it but I will not buy it again. If I was you, I would pass on this one. Let me know what you think and please, try their other beers. Maybe it is just this brew. Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
