Well, today is my Sunday. The beauty of working in the home delivery field. I don’t have a huge amount of plans today. I’ve been watching the World Baseball Classic lately. I can’t believe how well Italy has done. I’d like to see them go a little bit further. Anyways, here’s a review from last week…
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A medium-bodied pale with moderate bitterness, slight caramel malt flavor, and citrusy hop aroma. This is a good beer to start with when building up the courage for the stronger beers.”
Random: My cat sleeps about 18 hours. I wish I had his life.
This one poured with a half a finger of cream-colored head that dissipated quickly. It left a limited amount of lacing on the glass. The body was a very hazy bright orange with limited carbonation visible throughout. The nose was huge. It was filled with stinky, earthy hops and old grapefruit. I literally smelled it as I opened the bottle. Bready malt came through on the nose after a few minutes. The taste started with the same stinky hops that were apparent in the nose. Then, I got grass and grapefruit pith. For a pale ale, this was incredibly bitter. After a few sips, I got some bread and a touch of almond. This beer was definitely not balanced. At the end of the sip, this medicinal taste overwhelms the palate. The body was thick with medium carbonation. The finish was long with grapefruit pith and that medicinal taste I mentioned. This brew was straight out rough and unpolished. It was flat out awful. A definite drainpour. Avoid. I guess I know why this one was on sale at Spirits.
