Review: Capital City Pale Rider Ale

Capital City Pale Rider Ale from Capitol City Brewing
Rating: B-

Appearance: Very clear, gold amber. Nice head, some lacing.

Smell: Pleasant hops aroma, but no one characteristic really stands out. A little "twang" in the background.

Taste: Lots of bitterness, which is pleasant enough, but there's something in the finish that I'm not particularly fond of. It reminds me of a characteristic of an APA that I'd brewed from extract. I've heard people talk about an extract "twang" and I'm curious if that's what I'm tasting here, too. At least it finishes dry.

Mouthfeel & Drinkability: Nothing particularly notable. Above average, but not great.

Serving type: on-tap
