RE: Bale Breaker Field 41 Pale Ale: An Amateurish Beer Review

in #beer4 years ago (edited)

I have never tried a microbrew in a can.

Of all the pale ales I have sampled, I preferred the least hoppy of them all, Bass.

Mebbe you'll like it too.

Personally, I couldn't agree more regarding hops. While a bit of bitter is necessary to focus the mind on the other flavors present, it is all too common for (particularly young) breweries to think they're kicking the flavor up a notch while they're actually drowning it in hops.

As for ABV, I have not yet found a beer that exceeds my desired level. I've tried some belgian wheat beers with alcohol content in excess of 17%, and I could stand more.

I like wheat beer, too. Basically tasty alcohol you need to eat with a spoon, it's my second favorite, just ahead of Irish stouts, and just behind Bass Pale Ale.

Belgium and Germany especially revel in good beer.

Sort:  

Some beers need extra hops for the proper character. Pale ales are not among them.

I do tend to prefer stouts and porters myself, too.

EDIT

I wonder why no hipster microbreweries have pitched cans as "personal kegs" yet? Maybe they have and I missed it.
