Excelsior White Gold (8% alcohol): This Rustic Pale Wheat Ale from Ithaca Brewing Company in New York is exquisite. White Gold pours a hazy pastel yellow with a thick cream-colored head that has good retention and lacing. The aroma is earthy with hints of malt, citrus and a slight fruitiness. Intricate flavors continue to surprise with each sip. A variety of flavors including tart citrus, breadiness and fruity sweetness balanced out by a subtle peppery spiciness and a fair a amount of carbonation take over your taste buds. White Gold is refreshing and satisfying. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and would gladly purchase again for $10.
