Review: Farnham 64 IPA Américaine
Let's try out Farnham Ale And Lager's IPA Américaine, which, as you probably guessed, is a take on American style IPAs, meant to be full on hops, sweet maltiness, light amount of citrus, and great for a patio quencher.
Appearance: I love Farnham's packaging as it reminds me of beer labels from the 1950s, very simple and straightforward yet incredibly catchy. The beer pours a light honey brown. Quite frothy, a creamy beige foam that slowly goes down.
Aroma: Notes of various hops including cascade, a bit of a brown sugar sweetness, light amount of citrus, a bit of pine sap and a hint of mint.
Taste: A bit of a watery mouth feel, not as bitter as most American-style IPAs. A bit of pine notes, sweet caramel malt, slightly nutty, light straw notes, not the best IPA I've had from Quebec unfortunately.
Overall Thoughts: It's alright, but not great, but at $2.99/can, you can't go wrong with that price. Much lighter than I expected, but very easy to drink, and still more bitter than a Keith's by far! 6.0% ABV.
