Light and crisp, Meadowbrook Farm Ale tastes like the good late summer beer that it obviously is. By mid-October, the Sno Falls Brewery was on its last tank (“for now,” server Bridgette Kane assures) of the brew made with the wild hops that were once grown on Meadowbrook Farm.

The kolsch-style beer is lightly carbonated, pale yellow and has a noticeable scent of hops, mainly orange citrus and sweet floral notes. The hop flavors are prominent with the first sniff and sip, but slowly fade to give the tasty ale a smooth finish, neither bitter nor sweet.
