3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Alpine Ale pours a clear, light golden color with a thin white foam.
S: The aroma is citrus hops and sweet, bready malt. I was expecting a bit more from an Alpine beer, but it’s alright.
T: The taste is quite balanced. The beer has nice citrus and pine hop components, and a sweet malt character that takes over dominates most of the sip. The finish is crisp and bitter.
M: The body is medium and there is a moderate level of carbonation. Definitely fitting for the beer.
D: This is pretty much what I expect from a pale ale. A nice malt component and some hops to balance things out without being overly bitter. A solid beer, but it’s a bit pricey for an APA bomber.
