Butte Creek Organic Pale Ale

Butte Creek Organic Pale Ale

Tomorrow my wife and I are going skydiving.  I’m pretty excited, and a bit nervous too I suppose.  I’ll make sure to tell you all about it on Sunday or Monday.

Tonight I’m wrapping up the poker night beer reviews with this Butte Creek Pale Ale.  Below are the thoughts from those who tried it:

  • Al:  “Getting nothing but hops.”
  • Darryl:  “Nice balance, piney bitter, American hops.”
  • Marc: “Not a lot of aroma.  A little bit more carbonation than I like.  Hoppy aftertaste.”

My thoughts:  Smells grassy.  Flightly floral flavors mixed with citrus.  I personally though it was unbalanced, flopping heavily over to the hop side.  That said, I thought it was an OK beer.

Next week I’ll be reviewing remainder of the beers I got from the Beer of the Month Club, as we only got through half of them during poker night.
