Flossmoor Station

Recession is brought to the bar shining with a pale golden body and a very slight haziness. A couple streams of large carbonation bubbles explode to the surface to keep the micro bubbled, perfectly white head in place. Decent lace lines are left here and there down the glass after each gulp.

This low abv beer has a surprisingly hoppy nose to it. The hoppiness brings a touch of grass but it mostly leans toward the citric side of the spectrum with orange and grapefruit being the two most noticeable. A faint, crisp biscuity maltiness brings up the rear. The entire aroma is crisp, clear and refreshing. This beer smells like an IPA light and I'm really enjoying it when taking the abv into consideration.

The flavor is a nice surprise with the low abv. That same biscuity malt lines the tongue before a surprisingly present citric hoppiness rolls along. Orange and sweetened grapefruit play a nice roll without ever coming across too strong. Again, this is like an IPA light and is probably the best low abv beer I've ever drank.

The body is on the moderate side of light but a good slow rolling carbonation boosts the mouthfeel nicely. There's a touch of bitterness left behind after each sip.

Drinkability? This is a gulper without a doubt. As a matter of fact it's hard to drink this one slow. Each drink is so refreshing and enjoyably hoppy the glass barely touches the bar.

It would be great to see this beer become a mainstay at Flossmoor; it would make a great addition to their lineup. The hoppiness is fantastic and totally unexpected with the low abv. It's hard to believe they pulled such flavor from a brew this low in alcohol.
