Real Ale Signature Hop Pale Ale ....

Saturday night beer is a Brewers' Cut Signature Hop Pale Ale from Real Ale Brewing Company.  It is a limited edition.  Twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows 5.1% ABV and 45 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thick, fluffy, off white head.  Beer color is a slightly hazy, golden yellow.  The aroma is fairly mild, with hops being the main note.  I am not getting a lot of citrus or pine, it's more grassy and herbaceous.  The taste is similar.  Grassy, herbaceous hops but there is a little citrus and pine.  There is some bitterness, but it is not overly sharp.  Some grainy malt to balance things out.  Somewhat foamy mouth feel, with a slightly dry finish.  The aftertaste leaves you with just a little bitter/sour.  Overall, an enjoyable, crisp and herbaceous pale ale.
