Sawdust City Brewing Company Golden Beach Pale Ale Session IPA at 4.5% ABV | 25 IBU (C$2.84 at NLC Howley Estates, 473 ml, packaged on 5-Apr-2017, acquired 26-Jun-2017, reviewed 27-Jun-2017)

Appearance: opaque straw with three fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and chunky, soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, tropical fruit, crackery wheat, light pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (8/10) Light body, moderate-lively carbonation, off-dry mild bitter finish. (4/5)

Really refreshing session ale that doesn’t sacrifice flavour. The bitterness seems quite mild at first, but the low sweetness prevents it from getting washed out, and it ends up finishing nicely balanced. So approachable, even for non beer geeks, that She Who Must Be Obeyed actually enjoyed it. (16/20)
