Good Mood Brewery Harvest Pale Ale – American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV

Good Mood Brewery Harvest Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV (C$2.21 at Collective, 355 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 17-Nov-2018, reviewed 19-Nov-2018)

Appearance: clear medium amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: floral, caramel, stone fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter, mild spice. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter mildly spicy finish. (3/5)

Decent enough if you think of it as an EPA, even though it’s a style I don’t generally prefer. (Though, I guess technically the bitterness is out of spec as an English.) Definite bonus points for the peel-and-stick moustaches in honour of M/November and the associated donation to Prostate Cancer research! (14/20)
