Blue Pants Brewery "Spare Pair"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "BORN ON" date not legible... looks like 1 or 2/9/2015.
$1.50 @ Trader Joe's #664, Nashville, TN

Appearance: Cloudy deep copper - unfiltered. Creamy off white head holds well and leaves some very nice lacing.

Aroma: Caramelish malt, pine, tropical fruit.

Flavor: Malty, caramelish, fruity. Solidly bitter. Pine and light citrus in the finish with a dollop of medium caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a dextrinous edge, and gently crisp with a carbonation level of around 2.35 volumes CO2/Liter.

Overall: A solid American pale ale with a bit of an English bent in its caramel maltiness. Nothing eye-opening, but more importantly, nicely balanced and rounded. Drinkable.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, some pine. Taste is piney, citrus, some malts, light bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and quality beer.

12 ounce bottle -> snifter

A - amber gold pour with a big fluffy overflowing head, world class retention and world class lacing.

S - BIG pine smell with a touch of citrus

T - This is a big tasting pale ale. It has all the usual notes (sweet caramel malts) and finishes with a bitter lemon taste and also has some roasted flavors.

M - decent carbonation but there is a bit of a lingering aftertaste that is a bit off putting.

O - I loved this. Another good offering from an up and coming Alabama brewery.
