Well, we’re nearly at the end of this 24-day journey and I’m pleased to say that today’s beer looks pretty good. Another Blooming Craft Ale is the actual name of the beer and it’s a 3.8% ale with a rich amber look to it. The picture on the front looks like hops but I don’t really know that for sure.
The aroma is the honey note which I am getting used to with these hoppy beers. This one definitely has an edge to it, though, and that hoppy dryness is definitely there when tasting. It’s beautifully balanced and very drinkable. It leaves just enough weight on the palate to have a longish finish.
Really like this ale – I’m going to go so far as to give it an 8, the highest of the batch so far with only one to go.
It has a different smell. It actually tastes quite generic. From the smell I thought it was going to have a distinct taste – the smell is almost appley.
