Believe it or not, I didn’t pick this up on my last trip to New York. In fact, I found it in a beer store in Chelmsford, MA, with several other different types from the same brewery (which I will be reviewing at a later time). They all have freak-show or circus names, and anyone afraid of clowns won’t be attracted to some of their labeling.
The Albino Python is a “white lager brewed with spices” and probably just what I needed tonight after a long day, and a long month of trying lots of dark beer. This one pours and resembles a hefeweizen or wheat beer from its cloudiness. The smell has some citrus and spices, and a little bit of hops. It has a nice head, too, and works really well in a tulip glass.
