Share This Review

Rock ’N’ Roll is an American-style Pale Ale brewed by Birrificio Le Baladin, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a stange from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a cloudy gold and is topped by a thick cap of mousse-like white foam that shows excellent retention. Ample sediment is visibly afloat in the glass white a smattering of lace clings to its sides.

Aroma

The aroma is pleasant with a scent that’s lightly spiced with yeast and grain.

Flavor

A smooth bready draw turns herbal, transitioning to a bite of floral hops, citrus, coriander, and pepper. A base of doughy bread and yeast tie the palate together.

Mouthfeel

Its feel has a smooth draw that becomes somewhat grainy on the backend. It finishes dry and astringent with a boozy warming sensation.

Overall

The Rock ’N’ Roll has an excellent appearance. Its ABV is high for the style and its warmth can easily be felt. Otherwise, the alcohol has a negligible impact. While its aroma and palate are nice, they’re not really in line with an American Pale. Rock ’N’ Roll makes prominent use of spices and yeast that are out of place for the style. This brew is better categorized as a Spiced Beer or perhaps a Belgian Pale. And if that’s of interest, give this brew a try. Otherwise, if you’re craving an American Pale, this one may disappoint.
