Banff Ave Brewing Co. Norquay 95 Quality Time Session Ale – Session IPA at 4.6% ABV | 37 IBU

Banff Ave Brewing Co. Norquay 95 Quality Time Session Ale – Session IPA at 4.6% ABV | 37 IBU (C$4.50 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 9-Nov-2020, acquired 18-Nov-2020, reviewed 21-Nov-2020)

Appearance: clear pale gold with one fat finger of loose white head, good retention, minimal spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: herbal/grassy, plastic band-aid, pale malt, light stone fruit. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp mild bitter finish. (3/5)

Brewer notes say hopped with Galaxy and El Dorado, but I’m not getting any of the characteristics I normally associate with those varietals. In fact, on the nose  it’s predominantly grassy and plastic-y esters. Not a very impressive effort from a new-to-me local brewer. (11/20)

5.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
