Description 

Way to go, Boat Ramp Champ. Now the ramp is clogged and another truck is victim to Davy Jones’s Locker. We teamed up with our friends at Qualified Captain to bring you the perfect brew to crack open after a day on the open sea. This pale Helles Lager is crisp, clean, refreshing, and light -- the perfect beverage to complement your fresh catch. Be smart out there everyone, because before you know it you could be the next Qualified Captain. Hey, at least you tried! #qualified
Disclaimer: This brew is best enjoyed AFTER a day of boating. Please do not consume while operating a motorized sea vessel.

The following beer was reviewed using guidelines provided by the Beer Judge Certification Program under sub-heading 4A Munich Helles after being dispensed from a 16 ounce can into a Pilsner glass.

A fresh biscuit like malt aroma is immediately perceived upon initial pour. Hops add a delicate touch to the balance however assume a junior position. No off aromas.

Pale yellow and brilliantly clear with a fine bead and full white head.

Malt accented in a light and grainy fashion with an exceptionally clean fermentation that allows the base ingredients to manifest themselves and represent the style. Hops of a noble variety influence the flavor in a gentle way avoiding a cloying sweet perception.

The mouth feel is medium to light and smooth over the tongue and leads to a soft and lightly dry finish.

A very easy drinking example of the style and a nice break from over hopped IPA’s that flood the market.  

 

 

 

Brewery Introduction

Three guys and a beer — that’s how Cape May Brewing Company came to be. Back in 2011, Ryan, Hank, and Mop Man brewed their first batch of Cape May IPA, kegged it up, and sold it to a bar up the street…
