Beer Review #4
5% Alcohol/ Volume
Style: English India Pale Ale
Appearance: India Pale Ale indeed. Pale gold in color.
Clear yet plain, not overly pleasant but
not overly off putting either.
Taste: Comes off pleasant, not bitter and takes a wait for a mild aftertaste.
Has a slight oak taste.
Mouthfeel: Strong carbonation but not overpowering. Has mild bitterness a slight
aftertaste that is very acceptable
Beer Style: This style of beer was brewed in england and sent to the troops in
India, hence India pale ale. Traditionally it was brewed to about
9% and then watered down to give to the troops. Generally
tasted of malt and hops. Alexander Keith IPA does a decent
job of it.
Drinkability: Average beer that could be enjoyed all year round. Winter or
summer. I think it would be a 5 Point beer if it was either
brewed to a stronger alcohol content or maybe slightly
watered down, like the soldiers got.
Scoring 17/25 Slightly beer than average. It would be one i would try in larger
quantities, like at the lake or a sporting event.
