Yellow Belly Brewery Root Cellar (Parsnip Ale) – Pale Ale at 6% ABV

Yellow Belly Brewery Root Cellar (Parsnip Ale) Pale Ale at 6% ABV ($8.00 at Yellow Belly Brewery, pint on tap)

Pours cloudy pale gold with one finger of white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is pale malt, citrus and floral hops with slight spicy ginger. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet then moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, tart bitter finish. (4/5)

Interesting. I’m not entirely sure whether I’m getting any root vegetable tones from the beer, because they just tapped it today and I’m smelling a lot of yeast and associated aromas from the brew room. If there is any parsnip flavour, it’s mild and well-behaved, and mostly present in the aftertaste. There’s quite a bit of citrus from the Topaz, and a little bite from the ginger at the end. All things considered, it’s a thumbs-up. (16/20)
