Silver Branch Gilded Age (Belgian Strong Blond Ale - 4 Pack x 16 oz.) (MD)
Belgian Strong Blond Ale / Maryland / 9.2%
Golden Strong Ales were Belgium’s answer to beer drinkers’ increasing preference for golden lagers in the early 20th century. Lore has it that the brewer deemed his creation a “devil of a beer.” The folks at Silver Branch consider it devilish for its combination of easy drinkability yet substantial strength. Gilded Age is beautiful subtle—fruity apple and pear notes from the yeast and just a tad spicy from the Saaz hops with a bit of alcohol warmth in the finish.
