Auburn AleHouse Fool's Gold Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Auburn AleHouse Fool's Gold Pale Ale. I had the chance to try a number of their beers on tap a year ago and was happy to find a few bottles to bring home recently (strictly for review purposes).
From the Auburn AleHouse website: “The Pale that Packs a punch!
Foolish amounts of North America’s finest pale malted barley infused with a ton of Pacific Northwest hops sets this west coast strong pale ale apart from others. Our pale pours bright golden in color with a fragrant, dense, foamy head. Sharp, yet well balanced on the palate, Fool’s Gold is not your ordinary Pale Ale. Don’t let the golden color fool you, this nugget weighs in at 7.8% abv.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a golden orange color with a nice off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma: Pine, citrus, biscuit and toasted malts.
Taste: Pine and citrus hops, biscuit and toasted malts and a slight caramel malt sweetness.
Overall: Drinkable and delicious, Auburn AleHouse Fool's Gold Pale Ale has great flavor and drinks more like an IPA than a Pale Ale. I recommend this 7.8% offering. Well done!
