SanTan American Idiot Ale
From SanTan Brewing – In celebration of the PROGRESSIVE® Broadway Across America – Arizona performances of AMERICAN IDIOT, SanTan Brewing Company and ASU Gammage have teamed up to define the flavor of a typical American idiot. From April 9-29, 2012 SanTan Brewing Company will offer theater and craft beer fans alike this limited edition AMERICAN IDIOT Ale.
SanTan Brewing – SanTan American Idiot Ale – 12 oz. can poured into a pint glass. 5.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours copper with visible rising carbonation. Small foamy tan head with foamy lacing.
Aroma: Classic cascade like dry hop aroma. A little fruity with very light caramel.
Taste: Hoppy bite out of the gate. Resinus pine and citrus combo. Dry pale malt, earthy notes. Finishes with quick bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, juicy. High side of medium carbonation.
Overall: A solid American Pale Ale, very close to a SNPA clone, which is nothing but a compliment. This was my first SanTan beer, and hope they have another Pale like this in regular rotation.
