Ruhstaller’s Gilt Edge Lager Beer (4.8%)

Gilt EdgeWow.
What a super beer this is.
Brewed with ingredients sourced from Ruhstaller’s own farm, its billowing head hangs like a summer cloud above a light straw beer with a big yeasty lemon spiced flower garden smell.
Gilt Edge feels beautifully sticky as you drink, its caramel and brioche malt fixing themselves to your tongue.
But just before everything becomes overpoweringly sweet, the hops kick you in the teeth with knife sharp lemon juice, green sapling wood, just a hint of pine resin (well, this is American “Craft” after all), and a big bunch of green herbal leaves.
The finish is lip witheringly dry and fresh.
Like I said, wow.
