The Beer Report: Giddy Up!

Continuing our “99 Bottles of Beer” blog series, let’s try out a Giddy Up!, from New Belgium:


It’s a dark brown color, with hints of amber. It has a minimal amount of head and is mildly carbonated.


Definitely has a good coffee smell going on. Very aromatic!


A bit on the heavier side, and a bit of a thick taste. A minimal coffee aftertaste is present as well.


Neither overly carbonated nor flat. Easy to drink in moderation, and surprisingly smooth.


A delicious beer! I paired this one off with a bowl of chili macaroni, which the beer performed very well with. The cofee notes also make it nice for an after-dinner beer as well, so give it a try!
