Iron Hill Maholo Apollo
While at Iron Hill in West Chester on my last visit, I ordered a glass of Maholo Apollo. The beer pours unfiltered yellow color with a bubbly white head. The aroma consists of lemongrass, wheat and thyme. The taste is sweet with lemon, wheat, and thyme and has a biscuit undertone. The beer has a pleasant rounded flavor that is easy drinking and smooth, but yet a light pepper finish. The alcohol content is 6.9% ABV. I really enjoyed the Maholo Apollo and will definitely order this beer on subsequent visits to Iron Hill. The twist for me was the thyme spice accent that really danced on the tongue.
