Orlando Brewing Certified Organic Beer Sampler at the Wave
Grabbed a quick lunch at the Wave in May and noticed that they had a beer sampler of 3 different 5oz samples of Orlando Brewing Organic Beer. Who am I to argue with trying 3 beers instead of 1?
The presentation was definitely nice, as seen in the photo. Underneath each glass was a brief description of the beer above so you can keep track of what you’re trying. I hate to say it but none of them were extremely memorable but I enjoyed them all!
From left to right….
Blonde Ale: The local favorite is a light bodied blonde ale with a subtle malt sweetness and a crisp, dry finish
Might be a local favorite but I barely remember it! I remember thinking it was slightly watery but that was also b/c I was comparing it to the pale and brown ales next to it. I know I didn’t hate it.
Pale Ale: An all American style amber gold pale ale that blends caramel malt flavor and zesty citrus-toned Cascade hops for the perfect balance
I think this one was my favorite. It was slightly fruity and malty….and not hoppy at all.
Brown Ale: Hop sharpness dominates the malty richness. The malt plays a supporting role with some toasty and caramel malt character
Second favorite of the bunch, slightly nutty and smooth.
I know I’ve seen Orlando Brewing on tap at a few other bars on property (Raglan Road maybe?) so give them a try if you see them!
