Cricket Hill Reserve Ale “No.3 Barleywine”

While I love trying tasty brews from all around the country and the world, I try not to forget there is great beer in my own state! New Jersey has really begun to boom with quality craft beer over the past few years! If you don’t believe me check out New Jersey Craft Beer.com. Not only are new breweries popping up, but establishments are also starting to recognize the craft beer community and adding these delicious local brews to their taps! If you find yourself in the Garden State be sure and sample some of the local beer options. I recently picked up a brew from Fairfield, NJ
Cricket Hill Brewery’sReserve Ale No. 3 Barleywine” availability is limited and only comes in a 22oz bottle. It pours a hazy amber color upon which a thin, tight white head sits. The aroma is sweet with fresh caramel, malt, bread, tropical fruits, and a slight nuttiness. The taste brings on big malt and fruit juice flavors upfront, followed by vanilla and sticky caramel. The mouthfeel is full and juicy. The finish is wet, hoppy, and warm from the 8.5% abv. This is a very tasty and fruity barleywine. I imagine this might do very well in the cellar for a few years. Much Love to Cricket Hill for pumping out tasty big beer in NJ! Support your local brewery no matter where you live! Here’s to Good Beers!
