Modist Brewing Company Toats

When Modist first opened and unveiled their beers, I was a little disappointed in the names. "pHresh", is kind of clever, with the pH referring to acidity, but it also alludes, perhaps inadvertently, to "phat". Kind of tiresome. And called their 60% oat ale "toats" of course refers to the current colloquialism "totes" which is an abbreviation for "totally." Also annoying. The plain truth of the matter is that what youth culture finds hip and fresh I find tiresome and annoying. That's what happens when you get older.


But, you know what? I got over it.

Now, let's drink some beer.

Modist Toats. 4.8% ABV. 38 IBU.

Hazy, deep reddish brown, slim, off-white head, leaving lace.

Bold, bright and spicy aromatics. Mostly malty with citric hop essence popping through. Grassy & grapefruit-y.

In the mouth: Grassy, citrus-y, bittersweet hop flavor takes hold first, dominating the palate. Smooth & malty, with a never ending hoppy kick. Delicious.
Damn good beer, and you can drink it. I'd suggest that you do.




More yelling from their website:
THIS BEER IS MADE FROM AN UNHEARD OF 60% OATS. THE OATS CREATE A SLIGHTLY HAZY BEER WITH A BIG MOUTHFEEL, AND IT'S BACKED BY A CITRUSY HOP PROFILE THAT GIVE THE BEER A JUICY TANGERINE MARMALADE FLAVOR.

Hey Al - your autocorrect got you a couple of times - it's not Toast.

D'oh! Damn, you autocorrect! Sometime, as with all typos, I move my fingers too fast to notice that stuff.

But other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?
