Hey everybody, hope all is swimmingly great! Maltese has released Brass Coupling version 2.0. Kentucky Common was a beer made in the 1850′s that was brewed quickly and put into serving containers while the beer was still fermenting. This means the beer would change rapidly during it’s time at the saloon, and was known by many as a dark cream beer.
Brass Coupling follows the pattern of a fast fermentation. It was in the fermenter for only 6 days. The only difference from this beer and the original 1850′s version was that Maltese brought the temp to serving temperature quickly, cleaning it up more effectively.
As far as flavors, you’re going to detect a lot of bready and cracker notes at the very beginning, a middling body, and a slightly sweet finish. You will notice a malty aroma, with a possibility of cigar tobacco, depending on your nose.
This is still a quick drinker, and it tastes “older” than you’d think for drinker, as those beers usually age for a time. See what you think, you can buy a couple and share with friends.
Enjoy and see you at Maltese!
First of all, hello! My name is Jeffrey Trigger. I like to drink Maltese beer. About me, I am a beer lover of all styles, enjoy brewing at the homebrew level, and good conversation about beer. The folks at Maltese were kind enough to have me write about their beer. They did give me one caveat, and that was to write it so all could understand what I’m talking about. So you have it on my honor, I’ll write this to the best of my ability without sounding like a snob.
