Style: Belgian Style Golden Ale
Field Report Location: Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal
Tasting Notes: Recently I came across a local beer store that had a handful of beers by Bruton in stock at a reasonable price for a rarer beer (at least for me), so I grabbed a few. They term their Stone R ale as an Italian Special Golden Ale, but its definitely a Belgian. The Belgian yeast dominate the light hop bill (in a good way) and your left with a soft clove taste on a semi-malty palate. Not a ton going on here for the price, but a bronze-worthy Belgian, from Italy nonetheless.
