Red Racer Pale Ale
(Central City Brewing)

We absolutely love Central City's almighty Red Racer IPA so their Pale Ale was definitely on the radar. These guys up in BC really know how to use their hops and we're hoping to see more of their beers here in the US soon!

From the Central City site:

"The beer lover's pale ale. Big and bold with lots of flavour from the use of crystal malt and hops from the Yakima Valley in Washington State. A good pairing with pizza, prime rib, steaks, burgers and chicken."

Here we go...

Pour - medium golden in color, bubbly goodness with a very thick, fluffy head that leaves tons of lacing on the inside of the glass. Good stuff!

Aroma - good amount of hoppy goodness in the nose. Citrus combines nicely with the malt back to this pale ale. All is as it should be. Spot on for an American, or Canadian as it may be, Pale Ale (APA). 

Taste - lemon and orange citrus flavors, floral hoppiness and a good deal of malt sweetness to even things out quite well. Nothing fancy as far as taste goes but this is one very drinkable pale ale. Plenty of fresh hop flavor packed into this one. 

Overall - I'd have to say it win's out over quite a few Pale Ales in my opinion. It's balanced and has a certain quality to it that really does it for me. Easy drinking and portable. Perfect for any outdoor adventure. 

Note - After checking the Central City website it appears that they offer quite a few canned craft beers. They include their IPA, Pale Ale, Lager, White Ale, Pumpkin Ale, Winter Ale and now an ESB.
