Odd Company Brewing Strazzacca Pale – American Pale Ale at 5.3% ABV

Odd Company Brewing Strazzacca Pale – American Pale Ale at 5.3% ABV (C$8.82 at Collective, 500 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 10-Feb-2021, reviewed 20-Feb-2021)

Appearance: hazy straw with two fingers of pillowy white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: dank pine, mint, stone fruit, citrus, wheat. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium smooth body, moderate-low carbonation, medium duration slightly astringent finish. (3/5)

I assumed based upon the difficult-to-pronounce name, that this was hopped with Strata and Azacca (the extra “Z” notwithstanding). And yes, I sort of get both, but it’s really not all that emphatic or exciting. As well, there’s a hint of astringency in the finish that I don’t really appreciate. All in all, it’s OK, or maybe a little better, but that’s about it. (14/20)
