127. Rising Tide Ishmael

This is the first of three from Rising Tide that I will review this week. I enjoyed this beer but it took me close to 10 minutes to pour my first glass. You can see in this picture the extra large head and this was after 4-5 pours and sipping the foam away. Not sure if the combination of the glass and beer style or something else was causing this but it is the first time I have had an issue pouring a beer. After the first glass was done and I refilled it actually over flowed the glass causing quite a mess. Other than the excessive foam this is a quality beer; great color, minimal aroma and taste that is very well balanced. Easy to drink with low alcohol content. Looking forward to the next two from Rising Tide.

Brewers Description: Ishmael is our richly-flavored American copper ale. This American interpretation of the altbiers of Düsseldorf is brewed with continental Munich malt, American-grown hops, and a clean-fermenting ale yeast to produce a slightly sweet and malty beer balanced by a firm bitterness.
