Alley Time Pale Ale


Smuggled back by a friend from their recent visit to Chicago, and Spiteful Brewing.  A single hop American pale ale using Simcoe.  Enjoyed straight from the can…well, until I poured into a coffee cup so I could go for a walk.   Nice strong floral and citrus hop aroma when first opened,  but dissipates quickly.  Lighter flavor and less malty, than I expected from the nose.  Would have guessed less than the 6% ABV listed on the can.  Mild hop bitterness, clean finish.  Very sessionable.

So, what do you think ?
