Powell Street Craft Brewery – Old Jalopy Pale Ale Review

Powell St. Brewery is the new kid on the block for BC breweries. Calling the new “Brewery District” of East Vancouver home the Old Jalopy is a Pale Ale in their fresh lineup. The bottle is adorned with a beautiful label that is both classy and artistic. The beer is a cloudy, amber colour with two fingers of head. The head settles at a moderate pace leaving a thick film on the glass. Smelling this beer it has notes of florality and citrus that run along side a piney, northwest style hop. A mid-bitter hop is paired with a citrus flavour that contrasts quite nicely in a smooth and well balanced beer. A slightly smoked finish balances with the hop bitterness to give another level of uniqueness to the flavour profile. Overall this is a nice tasting pale ale that plays tribute to traditional brewing techniques. It is easy to drink and tastes great; if you can make your way down to the brewery pick up a bottle and you won’t be disappointed.
