Magic Rock Brewing – Tap Type American Pale Ale – 6.5%
From the guys at Magic Rock Brewing comes Tap Type American Pale Ale at 6.5%. A superb little American Pale Ale. The pour is ultra hazy, light bright and inviting. A thin white uneven skin dances on the beer top. The aroma is complex citrus, mango and peach. I’m so pleased about the mosaic hop presence in this beer, it really strikes through the flavours. There is little maltiness, and a moderate bitterness that builds as the brew goes on. Spicy citrus fruitiness is apparent with some sweetness that reinforces the base malt to produce something that is simply stunning. Light and breezy refreshing yet strong and punchy. Experimental and forward thinking as always from Magic Rock. I detect hints of chalky yeasty bitterness emerging at the end, a taste not too similar to drinking the bottle conditioned yeast from the dregs of the bottle. In my eyes. Excellent stuff.
