As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m in my old college town of Columbia, Missouri for a fraternity alumni golf tournament. Our foursome actually tied for first place (supposedly, but I played with 3 lawyers, so if you don’t believe our score, try suing us). After a looong day on the golf course, drinking a lot of Bud Light and some O’Fallon Wheach (both to be reviewed later), we headed out for the evening. I had heard there was a new brew pub in Columbia called Broadway Brewery, so that was our first stop of the night.
I ordered the American Pale ale, which was a dark orange color and had a thick, creamy head, with soap-like bubbles. It had a light citrusy and a bit floral hop aroma.
It had a creamy mouthfeel, but had a fairly light body. It had a nice head, but there didn’t seem to be much carbonation in the beer, making it very drinkable and smooth. There was a very slight malt flavor followed by a nice big floral and citrusy hop flavor. The finish was dry, leaving a nice hop flavor sticking around in my mouth.
Overall, this was a pretty good beer with a good hop flavor and a bit of maltiness. It was very drinkable, making it a good beer to pair with just about any type of food, including the pizzas, sandwiches, and burgers on the menu. I hope to get back to Columbia again this fall for a football game and hope to be able to stop by the Broadway Brewery to try a few more of their beers.
