The Tipsy-Train Beer Blog with Tiny Rebel's Cali Pale

Tiny Rebel - Cali Pale

Sunny Sunday and I was off to bristol with my girlfriend for the open doors events. (Yes, incredibly someone currently likes to spend time with me!) Jumped on the train at Weston-super-Mare and had a Pale Ale to satiate me for the half hour journey.

The can is pretty eye catching with a turquoisey background with surf boards and palm trees on show...and of course the iconic Tiny Rebel teddy. Unfortunately, my idea of skillfully carrying my beer in my back pocket for a 20 minute walk resulted in reasonably explosive foaming, but my reward was a really light and tropical smell with a flowery background reaching my nose.

First sip had a small, pleasant hoppy hit to it before a full tropical flavour took over the mouth. From there on there was a sticky, but energising note to finish off the mouthful with a slight bitter after taste that isn't too overbearing.

This juicy pale ale comes in at 5% in a 330ml can and is a solidly enjoyable drink. It's not going to blow your doors off, but at the price and with the range of flavours you get, it's definitely worth a go.

All for now in this bonus Sunday edition blog, hope you and a great weekend and catch you tomorrow!

Cheers!

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
