Anderson Valley Brewing Keebarlin' Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Anderson Valley Brewing Keebarlin' Pale Ale.
From the Anderson Valley Brewing website: “Brewed with 100% Columbus hops and loaded with hop flavor and aroma, Keebarlin’ Pale Ale takes aim at what a session beer should be. The use of Caracrystal® Wheat malt imparts subtle caramel and smooth dark toast flavors to perfectly balance the earthy, herbal hop profile.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a large white head and lots of lacing.
Aroma: Citrus – grapefruit, orange and lemon, floral, sweet bready and light caramel malts.
Taste: Caramel malt and bready backbone supported nicely by citrus (grapefruit, lemon, orange), floral and grassy hop notes.
Overall: Crisp and balanced, Anderson Valley Brewing Keebarlin' Pale Ale is a nice session Pale Ale. At 4.2% ABV this is an easy to drink beverage. I like it!
