Grain Bin Brewing Company Bring Back Summer American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV (C$8.05 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 28-May-2019, reviewed 3-Jun-2019)

Appearance: clear pale amber with two fat fingers of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: citrus, resiny pine, bready malt. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium bitter finish. (4/5)

Very nice. Nothing particularly outstanding (other than the pretty much perfect appearance) but everything is just done right. In fact, it’s so much by the numbers that it’s in danger of becoming boring – but the nicely balanced citrus and resiny pine aroma definitely keeps that from actually happening. (16/20)
