Snake Lake Brewing Company Drink Easy Lo-Cal SIPA – Session IPA at 3.9% ABV | 10 IBU (C$3.85 at Collective, 355 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 10-Feb-2021, reviewed 1-Mar-2021)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fat fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, citrus, pale malt. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, low bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration slightly tart finish. (3/5)

This one definitely has a light body, but I wouldn’t necessarily call it watery, and it’s quite refreshing and just as easy to drink as the name promises. On the other hand, it might be pleasant enough on the front end, but there’s a little something in the finish that isn’t really working for me – I hesitate to call it astringency, but it’s definitely got a little edge. Not bad overall, even without making allowances for its super light strength. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
