Weyerbacher Andromeda

June 12, 2013

Is there a better brewery from a more boring place than Weyerbacher? I do love talking about this brewery simply because it’s along I-78, a road you might travel along if you have to go to any place that could be described as a ‘one horse town.’ However, when you have nothing else to do, you have a lot of time to experiment and make interesting beers, hence why Weyerbacher makes delicious and intriguing stuff. Since spring is inevitably giving way to summer, and the temperatures rise, sometimes it’s important to get your hands on something light, and with its 4% ABV, the Andromeda certainly classifies as light.

The Andromeda is a clear red color with a little bit of a white head sitting atop it, not particularly fluffy but not a thin ring either, merely just right. The best way I could describe the scent was biscuity. As if you had just pulled a pan of biscuits out of the oven and then decided to coat them with sticky caramel and malt (which sounds delicious to me). As expected, the brew is light in body, with a very clean if slightly watery mouthfeel. Certainly something you can quaff without much thought.

In terms of taste, the beer closely follows its scent profile with few surprises. There’s a strong biscuit flavor with hints of caramel and malt. You also can pick up some sweet hints of vanilla as well. Finally, the Andromeda with a little hop tickle that really helps to balance things out. Overall, I’d say if you’re looking for a beer to drink on a hot day, give the Andromeda a try. It’s light, flavorful, and with its low ABV, it won’t knock you on your ass.
