Snake Lake Brewing Company Prairie Dreams – American Pale Ale at 5.2% ABV | 28 IBU (C$4.18 at Collective, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 25-May-2021, reviewed 4-Jun-2021)

Appearance: hazy straw with two fingers of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thick persistent cap, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: mild, grapefruit, tropical fruit, melon, pale crackery malt, light earthy pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium finish. (4/5)

The label says it’s hopped with El Dorado, Citra, and Pahto, and that’s pretty much what I’m getting. It’s got a pleasant aroma, but not very emphatic – I was hoping for more, well, everything. The scoring could have gone a little either way here: higher, for the fact that the aroma was nice, or lower, because of how little of it there was. Bottom line, though, it was a little short of great, for me anyway. (15/20)
