Kirkland Pale Ale
Costco. The beer pours an amber color with bubbly cream colored head that doesn’t leave any lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of caramel, pine hops, and lemon. The taste is big on caramel with some toffee as well. There is a hop presence to the effect of some pine and lemon, but it mostly impacts the beer with its bitter finish. The alcohol content is 5.4% ABV. I’d say this was quite an easy drinking pale ale that is pretty solid. While it isn’t a world changer, it is a nice beer to have or share with friends, especially for the price.
