Sunday Pizza Apologies and a Double Brew Review from Buzzards Bay

First, a quick apology for the absence of a Sunday pizza review.  My pizza partner, aka my husband, was out of town, and didn’t want to miss out on any of the places on our list, but it will resume shortly….we promise.

Upon D.Jones’ return from out of town, he brought with him a mind-blowing assortment of various brews from around the country that we intend to try in short order…beginning tonight with two selections from Buzzards Bay Brewing in Westport, MA.   This place was a recommendation from a friend in Boston so we were eager to open ’em up and check ’em out.

First up was their Pilsner, which poured light golden and well carbonated with a nice head.

It’s hoppier than a traditional pilsner which gives a nice bite at the back of the tongue, and finishes dry.   This beer is not particularly complex, but offers more of a bitterness than may be expected from a traditional pilsner.   It’s drinkable and the A.B.V.  of only 5.1% includes it in the “session beer” category for the hopheads amongst us.

Next up we poured the Gold Medal Lager…

This one also poured light golden and highly carbonated.   Their website describes this beer as a “hearty, easy drinking brewski” and we would concur.  D.Jones called it thicker and almost creamy, which I guess I can see a little bit.  The very end offers perhaps a hint of caramel and overall it has a good mouth feel to it, for what is essentially their self-proclaimed session beer.  A.B.V. is 5.4%.

Two thumbs up for both of our first selections from Buzzards Bay!
