The Bad Tattoo Brewing has brewed up a tongue-in-cheek Pale Ale called the Tramp Stamp with the curious moniker “What’s up down Under” printed on the label. This 5.3% alcohol beer comes in bomber bottles and is available in Penticton and select BC craft beer retailers. From the bottle the Tramp Stamp pours an amber colour with two fingers of head which settles at a moderate pace leaving light lacing behind on the glass. An aroma of malt, caramel and pacific-style hops gives the beer a light sweetness alongside a classic BC-styled Pale Ale nose. The citrus, and pineapple hop tones give an additional sweetness and lightness to the aroma. Tasting the beer it is a fairly classically styled American Pale Ale with a nice balance of hop tones and malted smoothness. The flavour is not as intense with fruit notes as the aroma but remains light, sessionable and easy drinking with a delicious Pale Ale flavour profile. The beer may not blow your socks off but that was intentional. This classic beer is extremely drinkable and has a nice, sessionable characteristic that is great time, and time again.
