How have I never rated this? From the bottle into a Sierra Nevada shaker glass. Medium amber color with a cream-colored head. Aroma of bready and caramel malt and floral hops. Flavor matches the aroma well with light sweetness and a nice hoppy finish. Medium bodied with mild astringent. A classic that’s always good and a common go to at restaurants

Una Pale ale dalla luppolatura americana, classico del suo stile, una birra purtroppo troppo blasonata, dalla quale ci si aspetta molto, ma che alla fine lascia con l’amaro in bocca (in tutti i sensi)... deludente e sopravvalutata.

Lele (113) - Padova, ITALY - SEP 19, 2014
Rinfrescante American Pale Ale. Dal colore ambrato chiaro, limpido. Schiuma lievemente giallognolo crema, abbastanza fitta, abbondante e persistente. L’aroma non è fortissimo: si avverte soprattutto del netto luppolato e dell’erbaceo. Anche il gusto tende al luppolato, ai frutti tropicali e soprattutto all’erbaceo (si avvertono molto sentori di paglia). Amaro inizialmente non accentuato, ma si avverte soprattutto nel lungo e persistente retrogusto, soprattutto nella parte posteriore e laterale della lingua e nel palato. Leggero acidulo e mieloso. Carbonizzazione media. Corpo tra leggero e medio. Bevibilissima e molto dissetante.
