Dead Frog Brewery Rocket Man Pale Ale – American Pale Ale at 5% ABV | 24 IBU

Dead Frog Brewery Rocket Man Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 5% ABV | 24 IBU (C$3.00 at Oak & Vine, 341 ml, no bottle date or best before, acquired 27-Mar-2017, reviewed 31-Mar-2017)

Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of fluffy ivory head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel, citrus, floral, vegetal. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

Definitely heading in the wrong direction with tonight’s Pale Ales. The label claims “A crisp and refreshing pale ale with smooth malt flavours and a tropical citrus aroma”. Well… no. There’s malt, sure – but other than that, nah, swing and a miss. (11/20)

5.5/10 #ryansbooze
