Ernest (7284) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. About as stark and simple as a pale ale can get. Very little aroma, basically just grapefruit rind hops and little else. Quite thin and watery in the mouth, and the flavor balance is ok but veering towards bland. Depressingly dull.
