Vee's Pale Ale
The second will be Caught Off Guarde and the third will be Essence of Skank. Yes this is a little like Back to the Future!
This afternoon I'm drinking Vee's Pale Ale home brewed by Vanessa from the Potables and Edibles Blog. This is an American Pale Ale brewed by an Australian. Go figure. LOL. Identifying cap says V 6/17.
Big cap pop and ginormous head. My photos are only 9 ouncers because, well, the head was already taking over the glass! Sharp lemon rind and citrus aroma, quite enticing! Lemon and citrus flavors dominate too. Dry and astringent, not that there's anything wrong with that. Earthy, yet slightly bland beyond the bitter. The 6.8% alcohol was a drying factor toward the end. Very refreshing, not overly bitter while this beer certainly leans that way. Fairly one-dimensional, though it is so totally awesome that one of my friends brewed this beer!!!

Oh No! Don't go over the edge! Very clever with the V marking for Vanessa's Vee.
