Review: Jackman's American Pale Ale

Jackman's American Pale Ale from Left Hand Brewing Company
Rating: B+

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a SA Boston Lager pint glass.

Appearance: An appealing orange color, clear, decent sized head, moderate lacing.

Smell: Surprisingly sweet, some biscuit & breadiness. Hops not as intense as I was expecting, but present: floral, some citrus.

Taste: More or less matches the aroma profile. Biscuit shows up at the swallow. Hop character is more subdued than I prefer in the style, and more floral than intense citrus. Bitterness is solid.

Mouthfeel: light-medium body, smooth & creamy, good carbonation.

Drinkability: Very drinkable, I was just expecting a bit more hop flavor.

Serving type: bottle
