Beer: The Bük
Brewer: Wormtown Brewing Co. / Bukowski Tavern
Rating: ** (6.9 of 10)
Comments: A special beer being offered by Bukowksi’s, one of my favorite beer bars in Boston & Cambridge. It’s a clear, golden-orange beer with a thin head. There are light, fruity aromas that oddly remind me of freshly-sharpened pencil shavings. The beer is well-balanced between hops & malt, sweet & bitter with hints of fruit and a basic earthiness. The head vanishes but leaves a light lacing on the glass. Overall this is a tasty & hearty, well-balanced brew. Nice job, Bukowski’s!
