It’s nice to know there are still brewers making beer flavored beer. Baerlic Brewing recently celebrated four years of beery beer and opened a new location in Portland’s underbeered Rose City Park. To celebrate they released a new, get this, pale ale. American pale ale is an underappreciated beer style. You can do so much with a little golden malt and some good hops. Rose City Park, the pale ale, opens with a floral bouquet, like jasmine or lavender. The flavor starts with golden malt sweetness that is immediately eradicated by a bracing bitterness and a perfumed finish. Every sip invites another, the best possible compliment in a session beer.
