YellowBelly Brewery Patrick’s Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 4.6% ABV | 50 IBU (C$10.08 at NLC Stavanger, 1 l, best before 23-Apr-2019, acquired 18-Mar-2019, reviewed 18-Mar-2019)

Appearance: clear medium gold with one finger of fine white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt, floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body tending slightly thin, moderate carbonation, medium duration bitter finish. (3/5)

The last version I had of this was 2017, hopped with Sorachi Ace. This year’s blend of Topaz, Nugget, and Cascade is a definite improvement, albeit pretty similar to the 2016, if I remember correctly. A significantly lighter ABV than previous revisions makes it just slightly thin, but not excessively so, and makes finishing off a couple of pints after a big supper less of a chore. (14/20)
