Common Roots Brewing Company Time – American Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV (C$7.95 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 17-Apr-2023, acquired 4-Jul-2023, reviewed 7-Jul-2023)
Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fat fingers of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone fruit, citrus, cereal grains. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: smooth medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, short duration off-dry slightly astringent finish. (3/5)
Brewer notes call this an “exploration of the Galaxy hop”, so I assume it’s a single-hop – but they don’t actually specify whether that is in fact the case. Not a lot of depth or complexity here. I mean, it’s fine, but it’s not very exciting, and there’s actually a tiny bit of astringency in the finish that isn’t exactly on-spec. (14/20)
This will be my 5,598th unique Untappd check-in.
