Four Winds Brewing Co. Vélo American Pale Ale at 4.5% ABV | 45 IBU (C$4.00 at The Brewer’s Apprentice, 355 ml, packaged on 9-Dec-2018, acquired 7-Jan-2018, reviewed 7-Jan-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: lemon, green leaves, light brine, pale crackery malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (7/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry short lightly tart finish. (4/5)

Quite nice! Kind of a blend of Radler and Gose characters, with lemon figuring prominently and light brine bringing up the rear. Malt is almost non-existent, making this light and crisp. Definitely more-ish and refreshing. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
