21st Amendment Brewery Bitter American Extra Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is 21st Amendment Brewery Bitter American Extra Pale Ale.
From the 21st Amendment Brewery website: “If you’d been rocketed into space against your will, you might be a little bitter too. Bitter American is our long-overdue tribute to unsung, unwitting heroes everywhere. This American session ale packs a lot of hop and malt flavor into a refreshingly lower-alcohol brew, making it the perfect beer to have on hand when you have a little history to make.
Bitter American is available year-round, in six pack cans and on draft. This extra pale session ale has lower alcohol but all the flavor and hop aroma you expect from a much bigger beer. Give one, or three, a try.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a copper color with a nice white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong citrus and pine hop scents mixed with sweet and biscuit malts.
Taste: Great citrus and pine hop flavor balanced with caramel and biscuit malts.
Overall: Incredibly drinkable and tasty, 21st Amendment Brewery Bitter American Extra Pale Ale is highly sessionable at 4.4% ABV. The great hop profile and slightly sweet malt finish makes this a really nice beer to drink several of.
