Half Moon Bay Beer Co. Back In The Saddle (3.75%)

Back In The SaddleBack In The Saddle is a Session Rye Pale Ale that pours a deep amber and smells of nutty cereals and honey.
There’s a good toffee and pumpernickel malting, some bran flakes and a sprinkling of black pepper, and then the hops – Cascade and Centennial – provide some decent bitter lemon, peach, satsuma and pine needle sharpness that makes for a finish that’s crisp and fresh.
My only problem is that none of the above linger long enough.
This is crying out to be a little more hefty, a little less “Session”.
