Beer Wednesday – Resurrection Ale

Baltimore Beer Week, Baltimore, Heavy Seas, The Brewer's Art

Go on, Visit Baltimore Beer Week and decide to visit my neck of the woods.

Happy Beer Wednesday! To celebrate this week, which is Baltimore Beer Week, I thought that I would go ahead and pick up a beer by one of the sponsors, The Brewer’s Art.

An abbey ale in a can? I’m intrigued.

The Brewer’s Art’s signature brown ale, Resurrection is a beer that is light, and really easy to drink. With just a 7% ABV, and a beautiful head on the beer to go along with a delicious nose, I got caught a bit off-guard once I tasted it. Heavily malted, with a lightly toasted flavor, Resurrection reminded me more of a really good brown ale than an abbey dubbel.

Great head, great color, great nose on this brown ale.

It sort of threatened to taste much stronger than it did, and while I didn’t dislike it by any means (it was really drinkable) I wasn’t amazed by it. When I see the words “abbey” or “dubbel” on a can or bottle, I want to be wowed, and this beer was just OK for that.

Had it been labeled as a blonde or brown ale, I might have been really impressed, but as an abbey ale, it’s just fair.

Not to say mean things about the dead-and-resurrected yeast that makes this beer, if you find a can of this beer and are looking for a drinkable, tasty beer to put away a bunch of, well, you could do a whole lot worse than The Brewer’s Art. And, if you happen to be in Baltimore between 1019 and 10/29, swing into a few of the Baltimore Beer Week events, because, if I can mange it, you can be sure I’ll be there. . .
