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 whiff was a light coffee one with a light sweetness just behind, but you could tell there was something goid on it's way. My following swig was a thick coffee and chocolate taste that you could tell was just packed and full with quality. At the end was a sweet berry finish that just took the edge of the stout being too heavy and balanced...a perfect touch.

First smell is that classic floral and feint tropical one, very light. The following swig had that nice fruity flavour on a very lightly hopped delivery, but I just didn't get that blueberry hit. There was a subtle dab at the back of the mouth, but I could really barely notice it and was expecting a lot more punch. I'm not a huge blueberry fan, however I was interested to see what this can would offer....unfortunately, I'll be waiting for that blueberry beer experience.

The can has the classic Polly's drip on top of a luscious flowery background. First smell is a rich coffee and almost chocolatey vibe with a tantalising raspberry essence to finish. The following taste was a lot lighter than I expected, but still had a certain fullness to it...the bonus was a lot stronger raspberry hit that was really well balanced.
