I’ve never had a honey beer before…..until this one and hot damn was it good. Generally, I’m not a HUGE fan of Atlantic Brewing but the Bragget Honey Ale was awesome. Review below but this beer is worth grabbing if you see it….chilling and drinking.
Presentation: Beautiful golden brown color, I’m not sure the picture does it justice but it just looks like a beer. I’m not sure it’s even relevant but it’s kind of like what I imagine mead to look like in the Middle Ages. Seriously, if Sherman Williams made a “Honey Ale” paint color, I’d use it in my house.
Style: Bragget Ale (apparently from Wales)
Brewery: Atlantic Brewing
ABV: 11.8% (bring out the nukes!!)
Method: Poured into a tale glass (recurring vacation theme until I get to Maine when the method will be “Red Solo Cup”
Overall taste: Rich, rich rich….very full bodied and original. The honey flavor is subtle but there. In a lot of ways, this beer is what you wish a Bass Ale would have been….but isn’t. Honestly, this beer looked great and tasted great.
Recommended drinking location: Pub beer, I drank it outside which was fine but this is bar beer. Get this, with a plate of Shepard’s Pie or Fish-n-Chips and you’re in heaven….drunk, fat heaven.
Ideal consumption amount: One, maybe 2 if you are in the mood. At 11.8% this definitely can give you this feeling
Similar Beers: Haven’t had one, very unique….very good. Damn it, now I have to find more beers like this one. Pity me….
