Russian River Brewing Velvet Glow

What the brewers say

“Bright straw color, aromas and flavors of bread crust and biscuit.”

What our panel thought

“Grainy-sweet aroma, touch of floral hops. Corn-like, doughy malt sweetness outshines subtle lemon-floral hops. Spritzy across the palate. On the lighter side of complexity and body—somewhat flabby and sweet on the finish. Could be drier.”

What our editors thought

“Generally light, floral nose with confident malt note of heather honey. The sip offers just enough floral bitterness to keep it clean. Light malt, vivid effervescence.”
