Common Ales: Ecliptic Quasar

Ecliptic Quasar pale aleThe cans have all been particularly foamy! But it pours into a class nicely enough.

The nose is strong and up front; I get the mosaic, I think; grassy, a little citrus there.

The flavors pick up in the drink too: fresh cut grass, a little lemon. I like it quite a bit and I want hot dogs on a picnic day with this. The finishing bitterness has a slightly drying effect, but it isn’t too strong and it doesn’t linger. I really dig on this-there’s a sweetness in the first phase of the beer that really helps brighten the rest of it up, keeping it from tasting one note and being too sharp. Well done.
