REVIEW: Alcohol Free - Infinite Session - India Pale Ale

This is the first Infinite Session beer I have had - and its a good start, very solid for an alcohol free beer but comes up a bit short.

I have heard that the American Pale is better then the IPA - so I will be giving that a go next, but the IPA doesn't totally deliver in the taste category. This is definitely a beer that would benefit from tweaking the recipe over time, as for now its solid, just about "good" and does serve the purpose of converting the alcohol free non believers.

The taste is just ok - bitter hops come through at first, followed by a faint mellow tropical flavour that reaches for juicy then falls a bit flat leaving with you with more bitter. If it were a bit juicier it would have had a lot more going for it, and would have distinguished it from its other AF competitors, as a lot of these beers just blast you with bitter tasting water. Its certainly refreshing so it has that going for it - the only thing is very one dimensional. 

A lot of the alcohol frees out there right now have perfected the body and mouthfeel, but Infinite Session IPA comes out very thin and rather close to watery. They do use oats in the brew, which is always welcomed in an AF - but perhaps it could benefit from a bit of lactose to add to the mouthfeel?

Its a two hop brew as well which could potentially limit it.

This review sounds like I am putting the beer on blast - but overall I did enjoy it, itsoverall solid, nothing phenomenal and very far from bad, its more that it has the potential to be something really great.

On to the session pale next!
