Summer is a great time of year for beer drinkers, bringing out some of the most refreshing drinks that go down cool in the heat. You’ll often see wheat beers a plenty, as well some great Kolsch beers and lagers.
Jailbreak Brewing — near Golf News Net headquarters in Maryland — has come out with a summer beer that’s meant to be refreshing and could be perfect for your next round.
It’s an amber ale called The 19th Tea, and it’s a play on the Arnold Palmer half-and-half. It’s a light amber ale brewed with black tea, then finished with lemon juice and more black tea. There’s a mild caramel aroma, as well the notes of the Arnold Palmer ingredients that go into a light drinking beer with a crisp finish.
The beer isn’t bitter at all, coming in at 19 IBUs (International Bitterness Units), but it does have a little punch behind it at 6.1 percent ABV (alcohol by volume).
Of course, this is region beer, so those of you outside the mid-Atlantic will be hard-pressed to find it. But that’s not our problem. Like Pokemon Go, we’re gonna catch ’em all.
