My local brewery have taken a recent departure from their single-hop series to create some multi-hopped beers. The first one I’m trying is this pale ale hopped with Sabro, Mosaic and Idaho-7. I’m told it’s the first time they’ve used Sabro and that they were excited to brew with it. It comes in at a light and sessionable 4.5% ABV.
The beer pours a gorgeous, hazy, cloudy apple or pear juice colour with a light white head. The beer has a rather creamy aroma to it with the addition of pineapple and peaches as well. The flavour is very solid. Loads of coconut on the front end before moving into a juicier, more tropical flavour. It rounds off on a hoppier note, with a soft, moreish bitterness. On the whole very drinkable.
A quick note on the can art: The recent releases have moved on from the Jackson Pollock paint splats to this confetti style. I think the purple works very well, however, I might be biased as it is my favourite colour.
This is probably one of my favourite beers from the guys and gals at Pretty Decent. My first sip of the beer was pretty unremarkable but once I’d tipped the whole can in the dynamics changed a lot. Loads more coconut on the front end and a fuller body. Goes to show the importance of pouring in a glass and putting it all in! I’ve been a little aprehensive of PDBC beers recently as I’ve found some of them to be a little too green for my tastes. However, this was right up my alley and I’m looking forward to trying their other new release soon.
Thanks for reading! Cheers!
