In case you weren’t aware, June is Pride Month! To help kick the festivities off in style, Everett’s Bone Up Brewing Company unveiled a new beer and merch this past weekend to help raise money for the folks at GLAD (GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders).
Beer Name: P.R.I.D.E.
Brewery: Bone Up Brewing Company (Everett, MA)
Style: Pale Ale
Description: A specially brewed pale ale featuring Pacifica, Rakau, Idaho 7, El Dorado, and Empire hops. More specs here.
Appearance: Juice-like, orange and gold body with a thin layer of white foam across the top.
Smell: Light citrus and pale malts.
Taste: It had a smooth light orange, melon, and citrus rind sweetness that sat atop a subtle base of pale/biscuity malt. There was a mild bitterness on the end with a touch more sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Soft, roughly medium body with fairly light carbonation.
Hype: As a testament to their belief in this cause, the brewery definitely made sure their social media followers knew this hitting the taps. I don’t know about any additional hype necessarily, but people did seem pretty enthusiastic about this.
Overall: Fresh, easy drinking, and very refreshing. It had a nice sweetness and mouthfeel that made it the perfect beer to sit outside with on a warm day. Happy Pride you all!
