Year of New Beer: Hop Manna, Shmaltz Brewing (NY)

Written By: Dion on 02/15/2014

With the full launch of Shmaltz in KY coming next week, I was privileged to meet the brewery owner last night. The nose is subdued initially, with citrus notes and a light caramel malt coming out with warming. The citrus bitterness is more pronounced on the tongue but is kept in check by malty sweetness. Very smooth and easy drinking.
