Tried Back Forty Brewing Company’s Truck Stop this weekend.
I went to a local pub this past weekend. When I say pub, I mean your traditional American pub. With big private booths and a huge bar, dimly lit atmosphere. Luckily for me, they had just updated their beer menu. So I was able to check out their newest selections. I had a few good beers, but the one that stood out to me the most was Back Forty’s Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale. Brown Ales are by far one of my favorite styles of beer. They are not always the most popular style so when I actually see one on a beer menu, I’m not going to miss the opportunity to order a pint.
The Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale did not disappoint. It poured a light brown, lighter than expected. It was almost more of a dark amber color, probably coming in around 18-20 SRM. The head was thin, white and dissipated quickly. The beer smelled of honey and had sweet notes to it. Upon drinking the beer, caramel and sweet bread were prominent in the taste, with mild roasted notes and earthy hops present. The sweetness of the honey really helps this beer stand out to me, I think it compliments the beer’s other flavors very well. The body is thin, which I anticipated from the lighter coloring. Carbonation and mouthfeel were pleasant.
I really enjoyed this brown ale and would like to see it more places around Atlanta. Hopefully, I’ll find it at my local beer shop soon. To learn more about the Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale click here.
