The Grand Canyon Brewing Company Horseshoe Bend Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is The Grand Canyon Brewing Company Horseshoe Bend Pale Ale.
From The Grand Canyon Brewing Company website: “Our Pale Ale has a deep amber color and an exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. Large quantities of premium Cascade hops gives our Pale Ale its fragrant bouquet and spicy character.
The Grand Canyon’s burnt orange cliffs are stained with long curtains of dark desert varnish. These colors, along with the green river and blue sky – dazzle the senses, and the Colorado, itself shimmering in the sunlight 1,100 feet below the overlook is nothing short of hypnotic.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear orange color with a thin off-white head and sparse lacing.
Aroma: Light citrus and grassy hops and light caramel and biscuit malts.
Taste: Biscuit and caramel malts and light citrus, spicy and herbal/grassy hops.
Overall: Easy drinking and crisp, The Grand Canyon Brewing Company Horseshoe Bend Pale Ale is a malt forward American Pale Ale. At 5.5% ABV this beer is refreshing and worth a shot if you find yourself where this is available.
