  • Style: American Pale Ale
  • Taste: Crisp resiny hopped bitter metallic toasted barley malt
  • Where I got it : Traded with my brother
  • How much: priceless, sometime in 2015
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: nope

Visual: Pours clear brown-amber without much of a head, a thin layer of retention, clusters of steady streams.

Nose: sweet light toasted barley malt (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: quenching crisp bite

Mid-palate: immediate resiny bitter hops, smooth tingly CO2, (lvl-3-sweetness), bittersweet metallic toasted barley malt

Finish: hints of grassiness, residual grainy dry malt

Summary: Rather simple, short length and quenching mouthfeel – not terribly interesting. A bit above average but not worth seeking out.
