On tap at Imbibe. Hazy amber. Mild but pleasant fruity aroma. Sweet fruity taste, with a bitter finish. Some grainy bready notes in there too. Good body and carbonation. I enjoyed this one; Nickelbrook seems to be getting American Pale Ales right recently.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Imbibe. Hazy gold with a large white head. The aroma is alright, some nice piney hops covering up a weak malt character, as well as some yeast. Flavour wise it was a bit two-dimensional, decent hop presence flavour and bitterness-wise, but the malt body just isn’t there for any balance and the dry yeast adds to the rather abrasive feel I get from it. On the bright side it hides its booze quite well. Not a bad effort at all, but maybe not my hoppy cup of tea.
