Just like you, but different
The brewers, concerned, send me a replacement for the beer that I had, and some others, which was beyond what I’d expect. so, in short order, I revisit the scene of the crime….
Beyond the Pale, Beyond Music, Beyond numbers and one step too far with friends.
“… won a bronze medal once…”
This the is a unique style, the TPA, the Taupo Pale Ale.
Refreshing and hoppy, yet with sufficient supporting malt.
Heady aroma of Citrus and Passionfruit on the nose Those fruit flavour blend with a soft silky malt and end wit ha bitterness that lingers on.
What could possibly go wrong with that? Especially the 2nd time around.
Lovely hope fresh aroma.
Smallest of heads on the pour, and it fades to a film.
Carbonation is decent, this has that full bubble mouthfeel.
Nice caramel warm middle and a zing of bitter over the top.
I was pretty scathing of this last time I drank it, not a few beers ago. This time there is no mistake in the beer, it is clean and refreshing and has interaction in it with the taste buds. Enjoyable without being too dry, and without an overly long linger, it’s a decent drinking beer.
I can now see how it won a medal, it’s very good for the style with a subtle and welcome tweak in it.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as a 7 of its things from the thing. Second time around this is a lovely drinking beer, it isn’t polished and is a slightly jangly around a couple of the notes but this makes it interactive and pleasant to drink in my mind. I think this also would make a decent beer to go with some foods.
The double dip review
Got to go with something new, so for musics. “Early Winters” who began as an informal afternoon of writing between friends and blossomed into an expansive musical partnership. Based betweenLos Angeles and Toronto.
This is “Vanishing Act”
Just the thing to calm the nerves.
American Pale Ales are light in color, ranging from golden to a light copper color. The style of this beer is defined by the American hops used. American hops typically have high bitterness and aroma.This is a perfect beer for big fare like grilled burgers or combination pizzas, as well as lighter fare like sushi and green salads
