Rosenstadt Brewery LLC German-Hop Pale Ale

What the brewers say

German-grown Amarillo and Mandarina Bavaria hops create an unusual flavor profile with notes of tangerine and orange.

What our panel thought

Subtle, compelling aroma: peach, strawberry, grape candy coupled with earthy, floral, pine notes. Caramel malt flavor helps showcase floral-pine hops more than fruit; bitterness keeps the sweetness in check. Bitter, lightly dry finish, with lingering earthiness.

What our editors thought

Grape and red licorice in the nose—unexpected but joyful. In the sip, a pervasive sweetness highlights the licorice and candy notes, but the lilting earthy bitterness lends a disjointed element to it.
