Boombox Brewing Company Arcade Glow American Pale Ale at 5% ABV (C$3.28 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 16-Nov-2018, acquired 22-Feb-2019, reviewed 26-Feb-2019)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one fat finger of creamy white head, good retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus zest and flesh, grainy malt, pine, petrichor. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium bitter crisp finish. (4/5)

New (to me) contract brewer out of Parallel 49 in Vancouver. I like the way they went with this: highly attenuated so there’s lots of juice aroma but restrained sweetness, with an almost metallic minerality and crisp almost astringent finish. I could drink a lot of this. (16/20)
