I’m a big fan of Marshall Wharf beer but I don’t get to review many of them as I spend more time in Vermont than I do in Belfast but I do enjoy their beer at brewfests and restaurants whenever I see it. Fortunately they are canning some of their beer now starting with Can’t Dog then Ace Hole and I think I missed some cans of Sexy Chaos..
Tug is a low ABV beer for Marshall Wharf as many of their offerings are in the 8-11% range. This one clocks in at a very reasonable 5% and is a much more manageable four pack than Can’t Dog. The beer is a nice orange color with a fluffy white head full of big bubbles. Aroma is light with only a hint of hops. Taste follows the smell but does add a little extra kick of grassy hops.
Overall a nice pale ale and what I like most about their beer is the freshness even though it is coming from a can I know it has not been in there long.
