Cocoa Beach "Pale Ale"
Cocoa Beach Brewing Company - Cocoa Beach, Florida USA
American Pale Ale (ABV 6.6%)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a light reddish hue and a small (1 finger or less) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, eventually receding down to a thin film and possessed some good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).

The taste was lightly malty and bitter sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset, progressing with a mild citrus sweetness and a bitter hop finish. The flavor lasted an average duration with a fruity hoppy taste settling in on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body, watery and a tad dry in texture with a lively carbonation.

Overall a very good Pale Ale, which possessed a decent hoppiness that was set off slightly by a mild citrus sweetness...
