“West Coast Pale Ale w/ Incognito Mosaic”. Nice easy drinking Pale, with a pleasant aroma. The name is maybe a bit on the nose, though, because the flavour is a little bit lacking – sort of like answering the phone and getting dial tone… I don’t know quite why they called it a “WC” Pale, either, because the little bit of pine is pretty far in the background. Still and all, I like it, even without the usual “for such a low ABV” qualifier. Good one for a sunny patio. (15/20)
This will be my 5,219th unique Untappd check-in.
