We can’t promise inner peace, but our Full Moon pale ale definitely has a zen-like balance of smooth body and light carbonation.

Full Moon is a West Coast style pale ale that is both kettle hopped and dry hopped with Centennial and Cascades. The hops provide this ale with a nice citrus-like taste to balance out the caramel malts.

West Coast style pale ales are from a larger category of brews called American Pale Ale (APA). The APA is a cleaner and slightly hoppier version of British Pale Ales using North American hop varieties but everything else remains the same, right down to the balance between malts and hops to the medium body. With the additional hops APA tends to produce nice fruit-like flavours while balancing out the bitterness from the hops used in the process. 12.2°

Weaker aroma of citrus annd hops. Small white head that dissipates into a thin ring. Orangy brown pour. Nice citrusy and spicy hop combination. Cascade definetly stands out. Very delicious aftertaste. An ipa for the newbies or for those that dont want to much hop in their glass.

West coast pale ale....ummmm, not in this bottle. Tinges of citrus, pale, yeasty malts. Nothing very impressive, and quite boring. Run of the mill pale ale.

On tap at Sugarbowl. A decent APA but I guess I was a bit disappointed in this. Would have like a bit more assertiveness in the hops, but still a decent beverage. The first time I’ve had an Edmonton beer in Edmonton.

Pours a deep, clear copper. Minimal white head with lacing. Tastes of pale, citrus-ey hops with a great smooth flavor. Alley Kat is local for me and I love all of their offerings!
