Blindman Brewing New England-Style Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV | 35 IBU (C$3.98 at Liquor Crossing Red Deer, 473 ml, best before 11-Aug-2017, acquired 27-May-2017, reviewed 27-May-2017)

Appearance: opaque deep gold with two fingers of rocky ivory head diminishing gradually to a loose cap, moderate patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy citrus, tropical fruit, oats and wheat malt, hint of pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, soft to moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter finish. (4/5)

Oh hell yes. I keep wanting to say there’s a creamy lactose sweetness in there because it looks like a creamsicle, but I don’t think there actually is – it’s probably actually the oats. Either way, this thing is juicy and fresh, refreshing and easy drinking. I’ll have another 3 or 4 of these, please. Hell, just keep bringing them every 10 minutes or so till I’m under the table… then keep bringing them every 20 minutes or so… (16/20)
