Four Winds Pale Ale – American Pale Ale at 5.2% ABV

Four Winds Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 5.2% ABV (On tap at Craft Beer Market Calgary, reviewed 23-Feb-2016)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Aroma: bright citrus, stone fruit, pale malt, resiny pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry lightly bitter finish. (4/5)

The first whiff of the aroma reminded me of nothing so much as lemon Pledge. Not that it’s got a solvent edge – it doesn’t, not really – but the citrus is surprisingly bright. Hoppy, but well-balanced with pale malt. A quite enjoyable Pale. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
