Ad Astra Ale

  • SRM Color : 20
  • Brewer: Free State Brewing Co.
  • Brewer's Description: This ale is the first brewed in Kansas since pioneering days. The name "Ad Astra comes from the Kansas State Motto - Ad Astra per Aspera, Latin words meaning "To the Stars through Difficulties". We've blended Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts for a rich amber beer. The hops balance this malty sweetness, and we've chosen Northern brewer and Fuggles hops for their flavor.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Conical Pint Glass
  • Russ' rating: 9 of 10
  • With the brew: The Cuban Pork Sandwich
  • Comments: Ad Astra is a rich Malty Beer. I was served the glass so I was not able to experience the pour, but the head was long lasting and Malty with a smaller than average bubble (< 0.5mm). There is only a hint of Hoppyness  in this delicious Brown Ale. What really makes this Beer special is the blend of Malts used to brew the beer. Its is a very smooth and easy to drink Beer with a wholesome nuttiness that was almost sweet. I was fortunate enough to have this beer at the Free State Brewing Company in Lawrence Kansas, but this beer and some others from this fine Brewer are avaialble regionally in bottles in the Midwest.
