Appearance

The ale pours a crystal-clear gold with nearly an inch-thick cap of bubbly, white foam that persists briefly. A few scant dots of residue are left behind.

Aroma

Aroma is pleasant with a scent that’s piney and floral, spiced with pepper, and backed by a hint of grain.

Flavor

The clean palate is hop forward with a taste that’s spicy, herbal, and resinous. Finishes with a bitter citrus note of grapefruit and a lingering taste of lemon juice. An undercurrent of tropical fruit and cracker malt does little to balance the flavor.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry with a medium body and ample carbonation.

Overall

As is the case with many sessionable beers, absent malt skews the taste towards being decidedly bitter. Which makes this brew more akin to a Session IPA than a pale. That’s likely welcomed by hopheads, to be sure. That being said, the N/E Auburn Pale Ale does make for a nice refresher and it’s a good candidate for that lawnmower beer.
