612 Brew Gateway Park Review

Name: 612 Brew Gateway Park
Style: Pale Lager
ABV: 5.6%

I've got a first for this blog and that is a beer from 612 Brew, based out of Northeast Minneapolis. I've been to their taproom a couple of times and have had their offerings before but never had the chance to review any of their stuff. Today I've got their Gateway Park Prohibition Lager, which takes its name from the Gateway Park district in Downtown Minneapolis.

Appearance - Hazy yellow color with no visible carbonation to speak of. The head is quite thin yet foamy, though there isn't really any lacing to speak of.

Aroma - The nose starts off with some lager yeastiness, followed by some flaked corn, pale malts, and finally some mild floral hops in the back.

Taste - Very pale malt heavy on the front the palate followed by some flaked corn, moderate lager yeasts and light floral hops with a fairly bittersweet aftertaste. There's also a very light bitterness that encompasses the overall flavor.

If you're looking for an easy drinking yet great tasting lager, Gateway Park will satisfy both of those requirements. Right now they're only available in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area but I have faith that the availability on this will be more widely available in the future.

612 Brew Gateway Park - 8.5/10
