Beer Gives You Wings

Beer #327 Golden Wing / Finch's Beer Company, Chicago, IL

Highlight of my day?  Got a new sweater, and the wrong color arrived.  Yep.  And it seems a foregone conclusion that my old man basketball team is going to get curb stomped tonight... again.  One of those days.

However, the show must go on, so tonight I'm reviewing Golden Wing, a blonde ale from Finch's Beer Company, which is based in Chicago.  In the glass, this beer is a hazy yellow color, with a fluffy white head.  You find aromas of citrus, yeast, and bread, and the taste has earthy and nutty notes, with a bit of fruit and and a dry, bitter finish.  Definitely worth a try if you find it near you.
Bird is the Word
Finch's is a relative newcomer to the scene, and the founding partners have backgrounds in art, design, and architecture.  Now you know!

Thing to Think About Today:
If these wings are golden, I'll stick with the theme and drop in some Golden Years by David Bowie.  My second place choice here tonight was going to be Broken Wings by Mr. Mister.  Maybe someone out there on the internet can mash the two together.  Anyone?
