Pair 2: Hunter's Brews

The second pair of 4.5 oz pours Mr. K and I shared at Hunter's Brewing were Porter County Porter and Progressive American Pale Ale. They were both very good. Both of them had complex flavors; they were more than your standard brews.

Porter County
Robust Porter | ABV: 5.7%
Look and Smell: This black brew had a coffee-colored head. A ring stuck around until the end. I could smell the bitter roast over the crowd.

Taste: It was just like coffee, good coffee. I tasted little sugar sweetness. Not sure if that touch of creaminess was in my head, filling in the rest of that coffee-ness.

American Pale Ale | ABV: 6.7%
Look and Smell: This gold ale had a white head. It smelled slightly like sweet malt.

Taste: It had a strong pithy bitterness. The sweet malt balanced it out. It was a well-balanced brew. It was a good example of an APA.
