BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Empyrean Brewing Company
Nebraska, United States
empyreanbrewingco.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Easy drinking with hints of sweet corn, bread and caramel, finishing with a blast of citrus hop character and just enough crisp to balance the sweet. It's a toast to rolling surf, Baja hoodies, beach BBQs and the elusive green flash.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a snifter via a friend from work----Thanks Randy
This summer ale pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate head of white foam that dissipates to a thin ring, thin layer, and light lacing. Nose of lemon zest, fresh spicy hops, light grain notes, and moderate sweet malts. Flavors follow the nose with sweet caramel and a cereal grain note on the front and sides, followed by light sweet malts and fading on the back to a spicy and zesty hop presence and light lemon notes. Good carbonation keeps this one lively with a dry finish. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste and a light grain note on the end.
A decent brew with good sessionability.

Cheers
