Beer Review #27
American Pale Ale
Appearance: Hits the glass a rich copper color,with a thin lasting ring of head. A nice clear beer. Smells like something sweet, but cant exactly identify what.
Taste: The first taste is sweet but fleeting, works to a buttery and smooth beer. Overall it is a fairly plain beer.
Mouthfeel: It is a nice soft, light beer. I like the fact that the beer doesn't finish super dry. I did find it a little bitter, but after the beer warms the bitterness leaves.
Beer Type: American Pale Ales are meant to have malt and hops in balance, with fruity esters all the while being a clean beer. Okanagan Springs Pale Ale is a fair representation of an average American Pale Ale.
Drinkability: I don think this one would be a permanent addition to my fridge. The flavor leaves too fast and the bitterness (while fading) was off putting.
Score 14/25 I really don't know what to say about this beer other than i hope the next Okanagan Springs offering is a little better than the last two.
