St. Terese's Pale Ale
St. Terese's Pale Ale is a product of Asheville, North Carolina's Highland Brewing Company. Sold in 355mL bottles, the alcohol content isn't listed, though Highland's website tells me that it contains 5.1% alcohol and 24 IBUs. Additionally, the website explains that the beer is named after the patron saint of headaches.
St. Terese's is a sunny golden ale topped with an almost white head. My bottle poured with a tiny amount of floating sediment. There is a healthy aroma of citrus hops, wearing a malt scarf. A coppery malt flavour recedes into a tangy citrus bitterness. The finish is quite satisfying and refreshing.
This is a very easy drinking and enjoyable pale ale; however it's a little bit on the thin-bodied side for me. For a beer with 5.1% alcohol, it's quite sessionable. Pleasant, though less robust than I was hoping for.
Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
