Starr Hill Pale Ale

Brewery: Starr Hill Brewery
Style: Pale Ale
ABV: 5.5%
Country: USA, Virginia

Another beer from my Christmas gift pack. This is also a beer brewed Crozet Virginia which is about twenty minutes away from Charlottesville. I've had a few beers from them before with mixed results. I thought their IPA was good but their lager was not that great.

This one poured a bright, coppery amber. thin white head dissipates quickly. The aroma was the typical grapefruit hop aroma that is common in this style. The taste had some sweet base malts with biscuit flavors and some fruity hopiness mixed in. dry bitter finish that lingers a bit. Tilts a bit more toward the bitter end of the spectrum. Pretty simple overall, not too exciting. B-
