New Belgium Hoptober Golden Ale


Hoptober is brewed with pale and wheat malts, and, well, a whole bunch of different kinds of hops.  Five kinds in fact, according to the bottle.   It resembles a pale ale, with a lot of hoppy bitterness, but a bit richer and smoother and bready, which I’m attributing to the wheat.  Medium body, good bitterness, this is a nice seasonal from New Belgium.

I give it a 3.8 out of 5.
