While we were in P-Town, we went to a place called Canteen. It’s a fast casual place with an amazing lobster roll and was listed as a must stop on a travel article I read while planning where we would go. Their beer selection was limited, but had two offerings from Aeronaut.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Sitting in a cervois, this beer has a glowing golden cloudy hue that’s highlighted by a bright white head. At first taste you take in a smooth and subtle bitterness letting through a pleasing malt bill. Using only bare bones base malts and some slight accompanying specialty malts to spice it up, this malt profile shines through a very light smooth bitterness. Pleasant grain flavors gently subside to a bath of hoppy citrus and fresh cut grass flavor. Tongue coating and rich, Citra and Mosaic jump off the page leaving the palate poised for more. Emerging from the golden depths, cascades of bubbles endlessly waft notes of grapefruit, melon, and tropical fruit. The end result, a very drinkable and refreshing pale ale with mild bitterness and bustling aroma.”
Random: This beer comes in at 42.2 IBUs. Very specific.
Unfortunately, they did not have glasses at this particular establishment, so I drank this beer out of the can. The nose on it, from what I could pick out, was mostly grassy with a touch of lemon rind. The taste had a bit more than the nose. There was a lot of grapefruit rind and quickly went into light pine and grass. There was a touch of apricot and honeydew melon. There was very little malt at the end of the sip. The body was light and crisp with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with grass and melon. I enjoyed this beer a lot and it paired well with my grilled cheese. I would have this one again and I love the can art.
