Snake River Brewing Company Snake River Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Snake River Brewing Company Snake River Pale Ale. Here’s another beer I sourced from Creekside Meats Market & Deli in Jackson, WY (Yelp page here).
From the Snake River Brewing Company website: “Snake River Pale is an American pale brewed with domestic malt and plenty of Cascade hops. Golden in color, it has a citrusy hop flavor which is followed by a crisp, firmly bitter finish. Pale ale is a great foil to spicy ethnic foods and can also complement a salad well.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with a large foamy white head and foamy lacing.
Aroma: Light citrus, pine and tropical hops balanced nicely with bready and caramel malts.
Taste: Citrus hops up front followed by sweet caramel malt and a slight honey and toffee sweetness.
Overall: Extremely easy to drink and more sweet than bitter, Snake River Brewing Company Snake River Pale Ale is very enjoyable. Balanced and weighing in at 5.2% ABV I would most definitely have this beer again. Another solid offering from Snake River Brewing Company.
