Snowshoe Brewing Company Thompson Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Snowshoe Brewing Company Thompson Pale Ale.
From the Snowshoe Brewing Company website: “Snowshoe Thompson Pale Ale is a medium-bodied, copper-colored ale with malty nose and distinct hop finish. Fruity, hoppy, and refreshing. Very balanced and flavorful. Fresh, clean, and tasty.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head and streaks of lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, light tropical and some pine hop scents, caramel and toffee.
Taste: Sweet malts upfront, citrus and some pine hop bitterness, toffee, caramel and a slight bready aftertaste.
Overall: Easy drinking and crisp, Snowshoe Brewing Company Thompson Pale Ale is a nice Pale Ale. This 5.5% ABV offering is nicely balanced, sweet and mildly hoppy. I enjoyed it!
