Top 10 beers in the world media

28th May, 2014 by Lauren Eads

NJ 350 Anniversary Ale, Flying Fish, New Jersey

nj350-400Chris Morris, writing at New Jersey’s nj.com, recommended the anniversary ale of the Flying Fish brewery in New Jersey which he called an “impressive, malt-forward beer with an IPA taste.”

He said: “NJ350 pours a medium amber-orange with a solid fluffy white head. Retention was fine, but lacing was a bit lacking. The aroma is malt-forward. There’s sweet barley, reminiscent of a barleywine, but that quickly settles in with notes of toasted grain and molasses. Finally, Piney hops from the Simcoe and Centennial do a nice job of trying to balance it out. The taste seems much more in line with the “stock ale” description (another name for it is an old or strong ale. Think big, hearty, fruity ale). There’s still that big, thick body that comes from the barley and molasses, but the hops play a bigger role. A mix of fruity and piney notes come out to play, with a good bitterness, but not an overwhelming one, which is exactly what Cluster hops add to beer.”

English strong ale, 7.5%
