Osiris Pale Ale
If you lived with me, last night you might have found me drinking Osiris Pale Ale brewed by Sun King Brewery in Indianapolis, Indiana. This pounder comes in a can and says several times around the top rim, "A PINT IN EVERY CAN". Marathon Marie is responsible for me drinking this one. A story on the back talks a bit about the beer.
Malty and bready aroma with a little orange citrus and spice, nice but not too powerful. Citrus orange flavors kick things off, much fruitier than I expected. A spicy bready aspect is also there from the start. After the initial sweeter flavors, this beer went straight to the other end of the spectrum, becoming more and more bitter all along the way. The progression from some pine to a more citric lemon and grapefruit bitterness to an all-out astringent dry finish was rapid. A slight 5.6% alcohol and medicinal aftertaste lingered behind. Quite the hop-forward pale ale, which I certainly appreciate. Nice beer! Grab it next time you're at the Indy 500!
