North Coast Brewing Acme Pale Ale

For the past few days I have been attending my cousins lovely wedding in Shawnee, Kansas. While there we went to the nearby liquor store and I was pleasantly surprised by their selection. This beer chosen by my stepdad is brewed by North Coast Brewing from California; who in 1996 resurrected the Acme name originally from San Fransisco and continues to brew their Pale Ale and IPA in Fort Bragg, CA. This beer pours a deep hazy apricot color, certainly unfiltered. Smells of pale malt and quite a bit of citrus. Head is modest and white. Flavor is a bit sour but malty. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. This is a decent drinkable beer, but a little simple and pale for my tastes. I wouldn’t discourage anyone from trying this beer, but it is a bit sour.  If you like a citrus filled pale ale give it a shot and ride your bike.

  1. North Coast Brewery is my current favorite. If you can get their Brother Thelonious, Pranqster, Old Stock Ale and Le Meire, and pretty much everyone I have had from them have been smashing.

    Love your blog too, we need to meet again for some drinks and a ride.

  2. For sure man send me a PM sometime when your bored, I’m usually just riding in circles. Thanks for the suggestions, I always love trying new beer. Glad to hear good things about the company, from browsing their website they seem to be a pretty cool company. The Old Stock looks darn hardcore definitely have to give that one a shot first.

  3. […] I couldn’t help but give it a chance. I wasn’t the biggest fan of their Acme Pale Ale [review] because it had more pale malt and citrus flavors than I prefer but I’ve heard good things […]
