Ten Hills Pale Ale by Goose Island

12 pk for $13.97

 

Beer Style: Pale Ale – originated in England.  The American versions of this style vary greatly from brewery to brewery.  They are typically less hoppier than IPAs with balanced hops and malt.

 

Appearance: Dark copper in color - 3/4” inch head

Smell: Floral hops and malt

Taste: Lots of floral hops at the beginning with solid malt backbone to follow.  It finished bitter and dry.  I also tasted caramel.

Mouth-feel: Nice body, smooth, and somewhat creamy

Overall: Since the sale of Goose Island to Anheuser Busch, I have been very critical of this brewery.  I must admit that I really do like this beer.  I thought that the floral hop flavor is fairly unique and it balances well with the malt profile.  It is also quite sessionable with 6.2% ABV.

 

Cheers,

Beer Guy
