Lot 306

Tangerine and dark yellow made cloudy by countless tiny drifting specks of sediment. The head is thin and soapy. Decent lace.

Typical IPA-lite aromas - grassy hops and spicy citric notes. Grapefruit and orange. Cracker and biscuit; the pils malt is always a nice touch.

The taste isn't nearly as expressive as the aroma and is rather bitter. More grassy than anything. The citrus is stunted; only mildly zesty. Not much interference from the malts. Hints of cracker.

The body is light and carbonation is on the low side. It's to be expected, but the overall feel is on the thin side. Bitter finish.

Bitterness is not as harsh as it is with Chinookie, but it does hamper ease of drinkability.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber color with a thick white head. The head has wonderful retention and fades very slowly over time to give a great amount of lacing and a very persistent film on the top of the brew.

Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of sweet malt and fruit as well as hop. A caramel and tangerine aroma create the sweet aromas while the hop aromas are a mix of earthy and light floral aromas.

Taste – The taste starts out of a lightly roasted/bready malt flavor mixed with bitter earthy and pine hop flavors. All these flavors create a base for the brew. Toward the middle, the pine retains its strength, but the earthy flavors increase with the beer getting less bready and a little more roasty. A dry and bitter earthy flavor are left at the end and leaves a somewhat unpleasant dirty aftertaste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – Not too surprisingly, at only 4 % abv the body of the beer is quite thin. The thinness really does not suit the hop or the malt flavors. The carbonation level is rather average, and while it does some to complement the thin body, overall the mouthfeel could use some work.

Overall – From the initial experiences (appearance and smell) I had high hopes. Unfortunately the taste and mouthfeel were rather poor, creating a not too tasty beer. One I will not go to again.

Single from Abe's.

An interesting idea, a session single hop pale ale, with the single hop changing with each batch. Which means these reviews will have limited use. I went to their website, as the bottle suggests, to learn what hop was used in this batch, but found no info.

Dark amber body, deep haze, topped by a hefty four fingers of off-white rocky foam. Good lacing.

Earthy aroma with a bit of citrus.

Very earthy, almost musty tasty. Big bitterness. Long lingering bitterness. Very static taste throughout.

Light-plus mouthfeel. Session like but with some chew.

Not a beer I'll be looking to revisit.

Full Pint : Hobnobber

LOOK: Pours a light amber, good clarity. Soapy white head forms and leaves behind a web of lace.

SMELL: Malty almost wort-like aroma with some citrus and herbal hops.

TASTE: Citrus, herb and pine, mellow toffee like malt. Pretty straight forward, light malt bill and lets the hop stand out.

FEEL: Light to medium bodied, well carbonated.

OVERALL: The bottle states the hop used will change in every batch. As it is, not bad, but I would love to see what Citra would be like.
