Gloucester Brewery - American Pale Ale

Gloucester Brewery - American Pale Ale

Nice day of Web stuff where I managed to freshen up a major part of the sight and get the warm fuzzy marketing feeling I used to get inside. Conversely, 85% of my lunch break was spent in a queue at the post office where about 30 people were in line to see 2 servers. We even got a mild "Jerry, Jerry!" moment where two woman exchanged whether or not you should have a go at the servers....if they'd had bigger handbags I think some shit might have gone down!

So, we've got a text heavy white can with the red, white and blue pastille USA colours of the American pale ale.

First smell is a thick tropical one with strong pineapple and just buzzing away underneath. First taste was certainly a hoppy one, but in my opinion too much of one, couldn't really absorb it without readjusting the mouth. Flavours were punchy, full and provided a wake up call, but the slight bitter edge at the back wasn't really to my liking. Alot of oomph for a American pale ale which was a pleasant surprise, but just not quite balanced enough to the quality of ingredients used.

As always, I hope you enjoyed my personal review, but why not come into @beercraftbath and try it for yourself!...🍺🤓 Han

Fresh and citrusy smells fire out after the can opening, just what I needed. First swig doesn't have that hoppy punch you may expect from an IPA, but a creaminess contains those flavours and delivers them in a different way. The punchyness is there with that lactose mouthfeel that coats the tongue really nicely, which gives a smooth delivery of those beautifully balanced ingredients.

First smell is a solid stout one of coffee with a sweet background. The following swig delivers that beautiful sweetness that is certainly reminiscent of smooth syrup over pancakes, before that coffee taste comes in. Have to say that the more I hit it back, the more I liked it, as the balance of coffee and sugary syrup came into play.

First smell just tells you I'm an IPA with full fruity flavours bulking under the snout. The following swig just gives you an electric shock of powerful hops that are a real eye opener, then straight behind is that thick mouthfeel giving you tropical flavour. Each swig after packs a punch, but a more subtle peachy tone starts coming through to end the taste.
