Beer Review: Central Waters Happy Heron Pale Ale

Yes, the beer reviews are back. I had a brief stint a while back writing reviews for a local newspaper. Shockingly, people actually want to read this crap. It's been a while, so here goes nothing. Tonight's selection is the Happy Heron Pale Ale from Amherst, Wisconsin's own Central Waters Brewing Company. I've never had a Central Waters beer before, so the pressure is on to wow me, fellas. The first thing that I notice is the thick, frothy head. I've never seen a headier beer (and I did properly pour it). The beer has a bright orange-golden color to it, not surprising for an American Pale Ale. The aroma is zesty and citrusy, balanced with a hint of graininess. It's an interesting blend. The beer itself is surprisingly light and easy to drink. It's not heavy at all. Since it is a Pale Ale, there is a hop kick to it. The bitterness of the hops doesn't hit you until the very end, but it's a nice jolt. It hits you on the back of your tongue. Overall, this is a crisp and refreshing beer. I only bought a single bottle of it, but I would definitely pick up a six pack in the future.

But the real question is, which beer is best to drink at the office?

Damn you! Now I have to try it! Boy, you're pissing me off! LOL

I aim to please.

I first stumbled across Heron about 2 years ago - great smoky tinge to it. I believe the Churchkey in Madison has it on tap now. Good stuff.

I'll be honest. I only bought it for two reasons. 1. It's a WI brewery that I hadn't tried yet. 2. The heron on the bottle looked so damn happy.

But it was great, so Happy Steve in the end.

Thanks for the info. Also please visit this site www.heatingairconditionrepair.com
