Postmark Brewing Belgian Red – Belgian Ale at 5.8% ABV | 23 IBU

Postmark Brewing Belgian Red Belgian Ale at 5.8% ABV | 23 IBU (C$6.50 at NLC Howley Estates, 650 ml, packaged on 1-Mar-2018, acquired 28-Mar-2018, reviewed 9-May-2018)

Appearance: slightly hazy reddish amber with thick fluffy beige head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel, banana, bready yeast, spice, light funk. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light spice. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration mildly spicy finish. (3/5)

Serviceable, I suppose, but nothing all that exciting. Of course, that’s hardly hardly surprising, considering about half of the dozen or so beers I’ve had from this brewery have gotten exactly this score. Mediocrity appears to be the name of the game here. (13/20)
