Brew Review: Two Brothers Cane and Ebel
This beer was a great surprise. I had heard good things about Two Brothers, and this one definitely did not disappoint.
Brewed with Thai palm sugar (Cane), the Two (Ebel) Brothers put together a red rye beer that explodes out of the gate. It’s reddish brown in color with a big floral hop aroma, much more than you’d expect with any rye beer. The flavor I found very interesting. It has a nice smooth sweet malty flavor, but it’s quickly overcome by a spicy, almost ginger taste that carries you into an almost tangy citrusy hop finish.
It’s very tasty and Two Brothers’ little step away from the norm was well worth it.
Was a hit for me at Savor. Was a hit for a few #DCBrews peeps who tried it when I brought some over to a get together this weekend. I love the huge rye presence from the malts. They blended beautifully with the bright hints of grapfruit hoppiness.
