Steven’s Point Brewery Point Pale Ale (5.4%)

Point Pale AleWhat a bright sunny beer this is.
It pours a shining gold with only the merest hint of a head, but it fizzes with life as it sits in your glass.
The smell is a soft woody caramel with a little splash of apple juice.
Point Pale Ale is a very easy drinking beer, its malts have a light biscuit crunch with honey and caramel sweetness and a dab of wood resin right at the back.
The Cascade hops are pin sharp but not overly bitter.
Instead of turning your face inside out as many US Pale Ales can do, this one gently pokes you with the pointy end of a sharpened hop bine.
There’s lemon and grapefruit and a nice dry leafiness that leaves a long sappy maple syrup finish.
