Four Winds Brewing – Pale Ale Review
In the continuing line of 4-pack beers from Four Winds Brewing out of Delta BC is the Pale Ale. This beer pours an amber colour topped with a single finger of slightly lacing head. Through the settling head comes a well hopped aroma along side caramel, tropical fruit and a smooth malt. The aroma screams west coast pale ale while remaining smooth, lightly sweet and very tempting. The taste starts off with a smooth texture and a light hop. The beer is lighter than expected with an airiness to it. The hop bitterness builds through the flavour profile along side a subdued caramel sweetness. Surprisingly the hop actually fades before the final notes leaving room for a subtle malted flavour to creep through into the mix. While this beer would at first glance seem rather hoppy that sense is short lived and leaves room for other more delicate flavours to be noticeable and enjoyed.
