A wonderful deep golden color, a light bodied brew with little head formation and retention when poured into a glass. With an ABV level of 5.4% and an IBU rate of 20 it presents drinkability with a smooth, crisp finish. The smell of fresh baked rye bread and honey with a touch of lemon emit from the glass. Hints of floral hops, grass, banana and clove all show up as well with an overall aroma reminiscent to that of honey nut cheerios.
The baked rye bread flavor is instant with the first sip along with a slight honey sweetness and lemongrass zest. Herbal hop bitterness and a sesame seed character are present with a bit of a spicy finish that simmers on the palates. A dry, smooth and crisp finish round out the overall feel providing a refreshing and cleansing sensation that is great on warm days.
Four Corners Brewing Company is located in Dallas, Texas with free brewery tours and tastings every Saturday with reservations. The Local Buzz is brewed with local honey and rye malts and can be found at a store near you. A great food pairing option would be a some grilled lemon peppered chicken with steamed vegetables and a caramelized dessert of your choice.
