Beer Review: Williamsburg Alewerks "400" Ale
OK, so I was going to go into all this stuff about how I am originally from Virginia and how Virginia is such an awesome state and talk about Jamestown and its 400th anniversary to lead up to this beer but I won't. This beer doesn't deserve it. I was SO disappointed with this beer I have given it a new rating that we haven't seen here before on The Beerbuddha: Drain Pour. For me to give it this rating is such a disappointment because I really looked forward to reviewing the beer and giving everyone the lowdown on this brewery out of my home state. Well, hopefully I will be able to with the other Williamsburg Alewerks brew I have. Well, until then here is my review of this beer.
Brewery: Williamsburg Alewerks
Beer: "400" Ale
Style: American Brown Ale
ABV: Not Listed
Recommended Glassware: Pint Glass
Serving Type: Pint Glass
Appearance- Nice dark, amber brown with little to no head and no lacing.
Smell-A nice nutty and sweet aroma. Nice hints of roasted malts and caramel.
Taste- Horrible! There is this bad sour taste that just ruins this beer. Ugh, this beer became a drain pour.
Mouthfeel- Medium body with very little carbonation.
Overall- A HUGE disappointment! I really hope the beer went bad and this taste wasn't intentional. Started off great but then went south! I don't even think the Jamestown colonists would have consumed this swill.
