Name: E.S. Bam
Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
Brewery: Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales website
Region: Dexter, Michigan
ABV: 4.7% Abv
How served: 750 ml capped bottle poured into a Kastaar tulip.
I paired this beer with: Orecchiette con Melannane. This was a very good pairing
Tasted on: Monday January 24th, 2011
Note: This beer poured a deep opaque brown/copper with a 2 finger tan head which left a fairly thin lacing on the glass. The nose was mildly funky, earthy and of dried grass. In the initial taste I got hit with lightly smoked wood and a very mild funkiness , then a mild malt sweetness which ended dry with some mild bitterness of the hops. The underlining theme was light & mild. The mouthfeel was thin with a medium to high level of carbonation. The drinkability was excellent and refreshing.
On the Label: Batch 288/289. Hoppy Farmhouse Ale. Bottle Conditioned
Bam is an Extra Special dog. After surviving being struck by a car, he daily somehow manages to avoid being carried away by the largish birds of prey gliding overhead, riding unseen thermals.
Bam’s tenacity seems only to be surpassed by his oversized personality. Join us in this celebration of his excess. More malt, more hops, same vivacious personality.
Cheers & Mahalo plenty!
