How can you not love the name of Starr Hill's latest beer?
It's fantastic on a number of levels (and the can is awesome too).
Look-A pale yellow in the glass. Clear. I thought it'd be darker...but it's cool that it's not.
Smell-Light citrus, hops, and really hint of caramel aroma. The hops are very pleasant on the nose.
Taste-For me, the piney hops are the first taste on my tongue. It's a pale ale so it's not a hop explosion like an IPA....which is a good thing.
Mouth-Light bodied. Dry and crisp.
Overall-For 4.7% ABV this is bursting with flavor. Usually you have to go for a lager to get this kind of flavor at this ABV. Doing it Pale Ale style gets the hop that you won't get in a lager. This is a strong session beer.
About Grateful Pale Ale:
Grateful creates a fresh spin on the American Pale Ale tradition. A strong citrusy, resinous aroma from the American hops leads into a light body with subtle malt flavor. Grateful is a sessionable brew at 4.7% abv.
