Tonight’s beverage of choice is a Frosty Knuckle Ale straight from the Mercury Brewing company in Ipswich, MA. My brother-in-law brought this over for me to try tonight as we watch the Bruins knock Montreal out of the playoffs. I’m always down for a local brew, and even better…a FREE local beer!
The Frosty Knuckle is a light beer. 5% ABV, although it goes down more like 4% or less. Nothing fancy with this beer. Comparable to many light beers out there.
Orange/golden amber color. Very little head. What head there was, settled pretty quick. Still a fair amount of carbonation on the tongue. Typical light beer taste. Kinda dry on the finish.
Overall, I’d give this one a C+. It’s a decent beer, but ultimately a light beer clone. Great if you want to pound-away some brews with your buddies, and you want to support a micro-brewer rather than a giant conglomerate.
