3fourths (9406) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Funny that it calls itself a Pale Ale, it’s not Pale at all, instead it’s amber-brown and would be classified as an Amber/Red Ale by a reasonable person. The aroma is strange presentation of nutty and apple-y malt with black cherry and grenadine, similar in character to an Old Fashioned cocktail. Medium-light bodied and sweet with a syrupy and gelatinous texture and considerable roughness. Pretty bad overall, with no authentic ingredient expression and poor flavor balance (sweet, goopy, under-attenuated). Even looks bad, pouring with no sustained head.
