Drifter Pale Ale (Widmer)

Drifter Pale Ale (Widmer Brothers)

Ratebeer 3.46 82nd percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +3

There was more aromatic hops than one would expect from a box pale ale. Excellent balance of grapefruit/pine and vanilla hops with the minor malt sweetness.

Aftertaste +1

Since this beer is not a super heavyweight in the hops department, the hops bitterness fades clean after about 20 seconds.

Alcohol Content 0 5.7%
Value +1

This was a great Pale Ale. It came in the Widmer Bro mixer pack that I picked up at Costco for $22 for 24 bottles.

Ingame Enhancement +1

I was soooo happy I convinced by father not to buy the Amber Bock big box. It is going to be a good week; at least as far as beer goes.

Overall 6/10

Everything Widmer brothers makes is golden. This beer is no exception.
