Needing something, hopefully, refreshing after yesterday’s exertions, it was time for a Pale Ale breakfast once again.
Taste: Quite mellow and medium bodied, the first impression of marmalade gives way to some pleasing hop bitterness. Easy drinking enough, but there’s not much else going on taste wise.
Finish: Very brief. Disappointing.
Conclusion: If this was 4.3% then it would be more impressive. But, although it doesn’t drink its strength, it simply hasn’t got enough going for it at 5.3%. There are several more impressive beers out there. One for your sister.
