Hi folks! Just posting a little something from my summer backlog. Taking advantage of another beautiful late Summer afternoon, the family and I took a Sunday out to Appleton Farm in Ipswich, MA a couple of weeks ago. While there, we took in some beautiful scenery and enjoyed a couple of beverages from the folks at Great Marsh Brewing and their line of hard seltzers.
Brewery: Great Marsh Brewing Company (Essex, MA)
Style: Hard Seltzer
Description: For their line of seltzers, the brewers wanted to distinguish themselves from a crowded field of similar products. To do so they made efforts to capture the water profile of Selters, Germany and took the additional, and somewhat novel, step of not adding any additional sugar.
Appearance: I drank this one from the can, but I have sufficient reason to believe it was clear and bubbly.
Smell: Faint sweet notes of peach.
Taste: Light notes of ripe peach throughout. The finish was pulpy with faint alcohol notes.
Mouthfeel: Lightly carbonated and light-medium bodied.
Hype: None. I’m not exactly up on developments in the world of hard seltzer.
Overall: I really enjoyed this as an outdoor, warm weather beverage. Standout for me was the refreshing, light, and natural taste and (most importantly) the fact that it wasn’t as aggressively carbonated as a lot of other hard seltzer options I’ve come across.
