“Doesn’t live up to the aroma”

Pacer pale ale smells stronger and better than it tastes. It goes down easily and there is no lingering aftertaste but that might be because this beer doesn’t really taste like anything. It’s very thin and watery and after a couple I think I’d get sick of drinking it.

It would be nice on a hot day but there’s better beer out there that accomplishes the same thing.

Would I buy it again?
Probably not

I think this may just be water. And at 2.8%, I may just get a better buzz from water.

Would I buy it again?

“Can it be two from two?”

This is the second beer from Fortitude Brewing Company and boy was I excited to try it! Unfortunately, that excitement dissipated quickly when I took my first sip. Honestly, it smelt great but the flavour was minimal and when there was flavour, it was so boring. There was barely an aftertaste and it just left me wanting more. I’m not angry Fortitude, I’m just disappointed.

Would I buy it again?
Nah, there’s heaps of other pale ales that do it better.
