While at Ashley’s Westland, it was the champion throw down and opening day for their patio. I had PhD Malt Liquor from Greenbush Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Greenbush Brewery. Let us get into this Malt Liquor.
It has a cloudy golden color with a constant white head. There is some smell but pretty fate. I cannot make it out. The taste has a sweet malty with a light carbonation corn frosted flake notes. The aftertaste is a slight alcohol bites but finish a little clean.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, yep, it is what you are reading. This is a craft brewery that made a malt liquor beer. I was pretty excited to try it. I drink every type of beer. I might not like it but I will try it at least once or twice. I have to say I was pretty impressed by it. This is a better version of the mainstream malt liquors like Colt 45 to Steel Reserve. I love how it is sweeter than the mainstream malt liquor. I bet I will not get the pounding headache like the mainstream ones give the beer drinker. I did like this beer but I could not finish. It was too much in a 16oz pour. I would have it again in a 10oz to 12oz pour. I believe you would have to make a trip to their brewpub to get this beer. I recommend it if you want something different. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
