LoneRider "Peacemaker"
LoneRider Brewing Company - Raleigh, North Carolina USA
American Pale Ale (ABV 5.7)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear medium amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) off-white fluffy head that reduced to a few puddles and a medium collar of residue, producing some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was kind of light with a grain malt, floral hops and a mild earthy yeast and had notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was lightly bittersweet with a mild caramel note at first, then became intensely hoppy and quite bitter with a nice hint of citrus towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with the nice bitter hoppy taste left to linger.

Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a dry oily texture and a almost prickly carbonation.

Overall an impressive Pale Ale that had more of a hoppy flavor than I expected...
