COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Description
Full Moon is a West Coast style pale ale that is both kettle hopped and dry hopped with Centennial and Cascades. The hops provide this ale with a nice citrus-like taste to balance out the caramel malts.

Notes
West Coast style pale ales are from a larger category of brews called American Pale Ale (APA). The APA is a cleaner and slightly hoppier version of British Pale Ales using North American hop varieties but everything else remains the same, right down to the balance between malts and hops to the medium body. With the additional hops APA tends to produce nice fruit-like flavours while balancing out the bitterness from the hops used in the process. 12.2°

Bottled. Sweet and highly hopped aroma. Classic copper pale ale colour with a reasonable white head. Highly hopped flavour with some biscuity notes. A underlying bitterness continues to the finish - a superb pale ale.

Appearance: Pours a gorgeous orange body with a decent white head floating on top. Lots of lacing left on the sides.

Smell: A good piney hop aroma with some solid malt. More on the dry side.

Taste: At first i thought it was a little off but as it warms it does get better. More malt-driven that hops though the flavor of the hops (grapefruit) are quite present with a present but not overdone bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Dry and a tiny bit metallic. As it warms it gets smoother but feels a little bit thin and light. Carbonation is spot on but something about the mouthfeel keeps it at average.

341ml bottle. Pours a clear gold-amber with a medium, mostly lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, bread, floral, citrus and grass. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, lemon, grapefruit, floral and grass with a dry, mildly bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with a thin texture and soft carbonation.

Light pepper and citrus. Clear amber pour with decent head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Drinks easy like wide mouth cans. Bottle.

It’s back! Poured a clear bronze colour with a finger of head that didn’t stick around. Nice lacing that stayed. Taste is of citrus apricots and breadiness to start and then semi-bitter hops at first and then a nice malt ending. Pretty good.

West coast pale ale....ummmm, not in this bottle. Tinges of citrus, pale, yeasty malts. Nothing very impressive, and quite boring. Run of the mill pale ale.

Yellow orange colour (copper) with a foamy white head. Transparent clarity. Aroma of yeast and hops. Taste is smooth with slightly bitter hoppy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Reilly’s Taphouse, Itaewon. Clear copper. Fruity toffee throughout. Nothing special.

On tap at Sugarbowl. A decent APA but I guess I was a bit disappointed in this. Would have like a bit more assertiveness in the hops, but still a decent beverage. The first time I’ve had an Edmonton beer in Edmonton.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a deep, clear copper. Minimal white head with lacing. Tastes of pale, citrus-ey hops with a great smooth flavor. Alley Kat is local for me and I love all of their offerings!

Pours clear copper, very nice nose. Light carbonation, and really great hop palate. Quite good
