Beer: Upstate Brewing Company’s Common Sense Ale
Type: Kentucky Common Ale
Background: According the can, the beer is “based on a style that was popular before prohibition in the Louisville, KY area” that later fell out of favor. My deep research (the can) tells me the brewers discovered the variety in “an old book” about beer making and brought it back.
Taste: The can nails it (what a smart can), “A dark beer…with just a hint of hops.” Here’s my hint. If Guinness made an extra light beer, this would be it.
How much/Where I get it: $3.75/Beer carts at end of the upper level platforms
Grade: On our scale of 1 (blah) to 5 (I’ll have another) happy drinker guys or HDGs, I give it three HDGs.
