Brasserie McAuslan St-Ambroise Session IPA – Session IPA at 4.5% ABV

Brasserie McAuslan St-Ambroise Session IPA Session IPA at 4.5% ABV (C$3.99 at Marché Cosmopolitain, 473 ml, bottle date 2-Jun-2016, best before 2-Nov-2016, acquired 27-Aug-2016, reviewed 27-Aug-2016)

Appearance: slightly hazy straw with one finger of rocky white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus, pine, grainy caramel. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry shortish bitter finish. (3/5)

A fairly unremarkable SIPA. Threatens to drop off to a watery finish but doesn’t, quite. Maintains a fairly good bitterness throughout, but ultimately ends up being fairly mediocre overall. On the up side, the Citra doesn’t come through as catty or oniony. Decent enough thirst quencher, I guess. (12/20)
