Mikkeller Running Club Beer Mile – American Pale Ale at 5% ABV

Mikkeller Running Club Beer Mile American Pale Ale at 5% ABV (C$5.72 at Collective, 330 ml, best before 20-Jun-2019, acquired 17-Nov-2018, reviewed 23-Nov-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale straw with one finger of tight white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grainy malt, grapefruit zest, light stone fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter finish. (3/5)

So, this beer is specifically designed for the Beer Mile (pound a beer, run a quarter mile, repeat three more times, run a penalty lap if you puke). So, after smelling and a few preliminary sips, I pounded it. And yeah, I can see the point here: it’s easy drinking, with a somewhat light (but not actually watery) body, moderate carbonation that doesn’t get you too bloated, and restrained sweetness. And now, I didn’t run a quarter mile. Might run to the fridge for another beer, though… (14/20)
