Review: Hoppin' Mad Trout Ale

Hoppin' Mad Trout Ale from Trout River Brewing Company
Rating: C

Thanks to barleywinebrewer for shipping this my way in the Little Guy BIF. Rather fruity label.

Appearance: More golden/yellow than the orange/amber I was expecting. Smallish head, exhibiting little retention. Hazy.

Smell: Strong berry-like fruit/yeast aroma. Slight herbal hoppy note.

Taste: That same berry flavor dominates. Bitterness shows up in the finish, but that's the only hint that this is a pale ale. Hop character is all very subdued. Unimpressive, on the whole.

Mouthfeel: Light mouthfeel, good carbonation.

Drinkability: Low. A bit disappointed in this one.

Serving type: bottle
