Real Ale Brewing Company
Texas, United States
realalebrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally brewed to celebrate the brewery’s 16th anniversary, and wildly popular as a seasonal release, Four Squared lives on in our year round lineup to quench the thirst of both the hop beginners and the most ardent hop heads. Lighter bodied and not too bitter, the balance of Four Squared leans heavily towards its dry hop component, a combination of Crystal, Amarillo and Mosaic hops that brings a brightness to the hop flavor and won't weigh you down. Save the resin and dank for your IPA, this beer is all about the tropical, juicy citrus that grabs you from the first sip. Dry and refreshing, bright and fruity, Four Squared keeps you coming back for more.

Pours a hazy golden color with a finger width 1/2 foamy, 1/2 carbonated head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is decent. Very nice citrus, piney resin aroma. Citrus taste predominates. Nice piney hop at the end. Very minimal astringency to aftertaste. Light bodied. A little watered down but is still a good beer.

Serving: 355 mL can (stamped "best by 05/05/15") poured into a 7 oz Libbey Gibraltar glass.

Appearance: Almost clear, light gold with a frothy, bubbly white head and patchy lace.

Smell: Floral and herbal hops with a light malt sweetness.

Taste: Biscuit malt, slightly sweet, with citrus rind and floral hops. Nice, crisp bitterness throughout.

Mouthfeel: Moderate to light body, smooth feel and good, visible carbonation.

Overall: Light and refreshing, but with some nice hops to add character and crispness.
