Alaskan "Freeride Pale Ale"
Served on-draught into a pilsner glass at Oskar Blues Liquids and Solids. Reviewed from notes taken in summer 2012.
A: Pours a half beige somewhat thick head with some cream but of poor retention. Colour is a dull orange juice. Nontransparent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Orange peel citrus notes, orange juice, citrus ester hops, light clean bright malts. A mild strength aroma.
T: Orange peel citrus notes, murky malts, and distinct dull orange juice. A bit sour - in a bad sense - this tastes like off orange juice. Simple. Not at all subtle. Mediocre.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Imperfect carbonation. Off thickness. Hardly tailored to the flavour.
Dr: Drinkable but strange. Very much littered with off flavours, leaving me wondering if the tap line is clean. Off orange juice is distinct, even dominant. I wouldn't get this again. A huge disappointment from Alaskan.
Serving type: on-tap
