Bauhaus Brew Labs Wagon Party Review

Name: Bauhaus Brewlabs Wagon Party
Style: California Common
ABV: 5.4%

It's time to check out a couple more new offerings from Bauhaus Brew Labs, which opened for business this past summer in Minneapolis and is currently one of the newest breweries in Minnesota. For this review I have their Wagon Party, which is their California Common (Steam Beer). According to the brewery, it is listed as one of their year round offerings. Good news for me because the local California Common style lager(s) are strictly seasonals

Wagon Party pours a hazy orange color with a mild amount of visible carbonation. The head is pretty frothy and the lacing is abundant.

The nose has a nice floral hoppiness upfront with a solid toffee pale & maltiness with some lager yeasts on the end. A little more complex than what I'm used to seeing in this style of beer.

Flavor-wise, it's got some floral hops with some citra-hops hanging on the backend of the hop profile. There's also some nice light toffee malts but the pale malts are a little more prevalent. The back end of the flavor is mainly lager yeasts, light citrus hops and pale malts.

The body is pretty light both in terms of body, carbonation, and overall thickness. It goes without saying that this is very easy to drink.

Wagon Party is another solid offering from Bauhaus Brew Labs. Much like Sky-Five, it's got a great taste and a decent price to back it up. Be sure to check it out if you're ever in the area!

Bauhaus Brew Labs Wagon Party - 8.5/10
