Ninkasi ReNewAle 2012

CIMG5150

This is the new ReNewAle. Last years was an Irish Red, and this year is Porter. This beer features 2-row, Chocolate, Carapils, Carahell, Carafa III, Crisp 77, with Flaked and Roasted Barley. The hops include German Northern Brewer, Horizon, and Sterling.

Stats:
American Porter. 5.9% ABV. 38 IBUs. Oregon. Available January-March

Dark brown to dark ruby in color. Has a decent off-white head.

The nose is a bit grainy and sweet smelling. There is a bit of chocolate. It actually smells a lot like Guinness.

Mouthfeel is not bad. Medium body, higher level of carbonation.

Sweet grainy flavor meets an anise and chocolate component. It’s actually got a hint of tang and has a considerable hop backend and a grainy finish.

It’s a decent beer, but it’s awfully light, and the hops do pop, giving it medium bitterness. 84 points
