Beer Advent Calendar: Day 13

Shmaltz Brewing Company Hebrew Genesis Ale
5.4% alc (thanks to Zac at Shmaltz Brewing)

Tagged as a "Smooth and Distinctive Light Brown Ale."

And they are correct! A very nice light brown ale, which is something I think I've discovered I enjoy. It is much hoppier on the front end, and has a less nutty middle. By the way, you said nutty middle. Great smooth finish, that is still hoppier than a typical brown has any right to be.

A nice surprise.

Hey Chris. This is Zak from Shmaltz Brewing. I'm really glad you enjoyed Genesis. As our first creation it holds a special place in our hearts. By the way, the alcohol content is right around 5.4%. Have a great holiday. L'Chaim!! ~Zak
