The Brewing Projekt – The Stolen Mile

Golden Ale with Lemon, Basil, and Lemongrass
Brewed in: Eau Claire, Wisconsin
Special Ingredients: Lemon, Basil, and Lemongrass
Canned on / Best By Date: None Listed
Tasting on: 9/23/20
Glass: Tulip

Aroma: Moderate basil, light lemon, and low-moderate canned pineapple. Gives the impression of a pineapple pizza. 7/12

Appearance: Golden with excellent clarity. White head with small to medium bubbles and good retention. 3/3

Flavor: Light, neutral malt. Balance is toward the low-moderate hop bitterness. Light basil and pineapple. Well-attenuated with a clean, neutral fermentation. Light-moderate minty/woodsy character in the finish that clashes with the pineapple character. 12/20

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body with a hint of softness. Moderate carbonation. No hot alcohol. 4/5

Overall Impression: A light summertime beer that incorporates basil well. However, the minty/woodsy finish (whether from the basil, hops, or something else) is out of place and detracts. 6/10

Final Score: 32/50 B-
