June Pale

36062614433_95e2a50b3c_cThis pale is pretty solid.

First, the visual of it is something I feel really accomplished about. So long as I decant the ale gently into the glass, the sediment at the bottom stays out so I get something that looks really good, given my equipment and skill set. I’m happy about that!

I don’t get much of a nose though. I’m less pleased about this. Maybe a very faint grassy whiff but nothing that really helps convey hops.

Still, it’s not too intense; neither the malt or bitterness on the finish being overmuch. I think I’d like another shot at this beer though, just to see if I can get a little more hoppiness on the nose.
