Bear Republic Brewing Company Grand-Am American Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Bear Republic Brewing Company Grand-Am American Pale Ale.
From the Bear Republic Brewing Company website: “Inspired by our team’s passion for racing, Grand-Am™ is an American Pale Ale worthy of the “Racer” family. True to our roots, this sessionable yet assertive ale balances both classic and new American hop varieties with a distinct malt backbone. Start your engines…”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a golden orange color with a creamy off-white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrus hops – grapefruit, lemon and orange with bready pale and sweet malts.
Taste: Flavors follow the nose – citrus hops, toasted pale malts and a certain honey sweetness.
Overall: Crisp and balanced, Bear Republic Brewing Company Grand-Am American Pale Ale is a fantastic Pale Ale. This 6.5% ABV offering is extremely drinkable and something I plan to keep around in the beer fridge. Highly recommended!!!
