Clown Shoes Beer Baked Goods – American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV

Clown Shoes Beer Baked Goods American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV (C$5.04 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 7-Nov-2011, acquired 31-Jan-2019, reviewed 5-Feb-2019)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of fluffy ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and ring, moderate spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, tropical fruit, vanilla, caramel, dank pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium slightly creamy body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter slightly resiny finish. (4/5)

Quite a bit better than their Bubble Farm IPA I had earlier, with much more flavour even though it’s got the much lighter ABV and malt bill you’d expect for an APA. This is more the speed I’d expect for Clown Shoes. (16/20)
