New Jersey Beer Co. 1787 Abbey Single Ale

Hey everyone!  Another beer I picked up while visiting NJ Beer Co. was their 1787 Abbey Single Ale.  At the brewery, they allow you to mix a 6 pack of their beers, and I picked up 2 of these.  There aren't many abbey singles that I see around, but I'm assuming it will be similar to a Belgian-style pale ale.  Let's check this beer out!

1787 Abbey Single Ale poured a light yellow/amber color with minimal head, no lacing on the glass, and visible, small carbonation bubbles.  The aroma is composed of lemon, yeast and a hint of earthiness.  The aroma is also full of citrus, mainly lemon.  As it warms up, a bit of clove and earthiness comes in to the flavor.  The beer started out with a high carbonation, but it quickly faded and flattened out.  It has a light body, and is quite drinkable.  There is also a sweet finish.

Overall:  Not bad, but not my favorite offering from NJ Beer Co.  Although, I remember liking it more out of the tap at the brewery.  On the plus side, it is highly drinkable, so you could likely share this one with some light lager drinking friends.
