Beer #158 Jolly Pumpkin E.S. Bam

Jolly Pumpkin E.S. Bam

Name:  E.S. Bam

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale                  

Brewery: Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales  website

Country: USA

Region:  Dexter, Michigan

ABV: 4.7% Abv

How served:  750 ml capped  bottle poured into a Kastaar tulip.            

My Overall Opinion:  Good. 

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!
