PalCabral (156) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle from COOP in Trysil. The beer pours deep golden with a big frothy head that sits down and leaves a nice scum head on the beer. It’s surprisingly pale for a pale ale. The aroma is the nicest thing with the beer, flowery english hops (East Kent Goldings?) and vague caramel dominate. The taste is also dominated by flowery hops but where did the caramel go? The taste is watery and not enough malt to balance the hops, which makes the beer come across one-dimensional. It needs 1% more ABV and a lot more crystal malt, IMO.
