In this beer blog, we are going to get deeper into my beer trade. This time, the beer is from The Brewer’s Art and it is Ozzy Ale, which is a BPA (Belgian Pale Ale). The Brewer’s Art open their doors in 1996 in Baltimore, Maryland. They brew several different beers. In the early part of 2014, Ozzy Osbourne, who is a famous Metal Lead Singer of Black Sabbath, issued cease and desist order against The Brewer’s Art on this beer. Stop the use of the name and packaging. Let us get into this BPA.
It has a cloudy golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has lemon citrus to spicy Belgian notes. The taste has a refreshing Belgian spices with a nice lemon citrus note finish for the aftertaste. It is a pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.thebrewersart.com):
Our answer to the Belgian «devil» beers (i.e. Lucifer, Duvel, etc.). Both rich and dry, this beer is all too easy to consume in large quantities. Hopped with Styrian Goldings.7.25%ab

In closing, I am pretty upset that they might have to change the name of this brew and packaging. I do understand why it is the case. I really did enjoy drinking this beer and I will have to do some more trades to get this great brew. I love the spicy notes from the yeast and kick from the hops. It is a pretty drinkable and lives up the classic beer styles. Brewer’s Art did a great designing the recipe of this beer. I highly recommend this beer and saving the can because the name might change along with the packaging. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
