Beer Info:

Bottle Inspection: All Good
Bottle Comments:

Aroma:
Bready and toasty with slight notes of caramel malt take center stage over a fruit/citrus juice hop presence.
9 / 12

Appearance:
Medium amber/orange about 10 SRM. Moderate white head that dissipates quickly, leaving tight, white lacing behind in the glass. Slightly hazy.
2 / 3

Flavor:
Bready malt profile with more than enough bitterness to balance. On the more bitter side for a pale ale, but still within the guidelines. Fruity/citrus hop flavor that is a little less dominate than preferred. Clean finish.
16 / 20

Mouthfeel:
Medium body with medium-high carbonation.
5 / 5

Overall:
I would love to try a fresh version of this beer. The hop aromas and flavors seem to have dropped out, leaving only the bitterness behind. With some perceived hop sweetness, this beer would have the perfect balance.
