Lake Placid Craft Brewing “Ubu Ale” Review (#085)

Lake Placid Craft Brewing
“Ubu Ale”

Lake Placid, New York

From The Brewery:

Named for a legendary chocolate lab, this ale features a smooth, rich maltiness complimented by the perfect amount of English hops.

Style: English Strong Ale
Color: Deep garnet red
ABV: 7.0%
Availability: Year round


Appearance: I enjoyed this beer in my Duvel tulip glass. I poured out this very dark reddish brown liquid, giving it a nice thick khaki colored head.

Smell: Yeast and malts is mostly what is coming off this beer, with a little bit of hops.

Taste: Sweet and malty, just like an English ale. It has a bit more complexity as it warms up, giving more fruity esters and a bit more English hops.

Mouthfeel: Rich and creamy. Not too heavy, but a present characteristic.

Drinkability/Palitability: Medium to high. This is a great beer to have 2 of.

Notes: What I enjoyed most about this beer is its finishing flavor. After it has progressed nicely over the pint, the last sip leaves you with a nice bready malt finish that was great.
