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!
