Jailhouse Brewing Reprieve French-style Ale
Another bottle I received in a trade with Lance Martin (Beers of the Night) and Alfred Hugh Leonard III was Jailhouse Brewing Reprieve French-style Ale. The beer pours a straw yellow color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma consists of lemon grass, earthy notes, hay, cream, and has some floral hops as well. The mouth feel is very carbonated with the taste consisting of lemon, hay,grass, and lemon. It has somewhat of a barnyard flavor to it before bits of cream come out on the finish. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. The Reprieve is a delicious beer that is light on the tongue, prefect for drinking in the summertime months.
