Oldman River Brewing Oldman River Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 6% ABV | 40 IBU (C$3.95 at Andrew Hilton Wine & Spirits, 355 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 25-Mar-2019, reviewed 25-Mar-2019)

Appearance: slightly chill hazed pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: melon, caramel, citrus, stone fruit, hint of floral and pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium bitter finish tending slightly astringent. (3/5)

Down in the deep south (of Alberta) for work and trying to keep it local – and this is from Lundbreck, not far from Lethbridge, so close enough. No real off notes here, other than the slight astringency in the finish, but a bit lacking in the excitement department. Does the job as a thirst quencher after a tiring day of work, though, so it’s got that going for it. (13/20)
