Beer Review: GoodLife Brewing Sweet As! Pacific Ale

Ah, good life, indeed.

Style: American Pale Ale
ABV: 6%

Fun Fact About the Brewery:

Hailing from Oregon's other craft beer mecca, Bend, GoodLife Brewing increased their output by over 60% in January 2013 and also began canning a few of their beers. I'm a sucker for pale ales and good beer in cans, so here we are!

Thoughts: Well, since summer is pretty much over at this point, might as well review one more pale ale for old time's sake. This is one fantastically unfiltered and slightly fruity pale ale that just hits your taste buds in all the right spots. Fruity might not be the right word as there's no actual fruit in it, but something about it smells tropical to me. I actually wish the ABV was around 4.5 or 5 because this is the kind of beer that leaves you wanting like 4 or 5 more. It has a lightly bitter, but refreshing finish. Don't let the dumb name throw you, this is a great pale ale. Nice can design and color scheme, too. Grab some for Labor Day and enjoy the last bits of summer before the Northwest grey comes for us all.

Rating: 4.25/5
