Daisy Cutter Pale Ale (Half Acre Beer Company)

Half Acre Beer Company became known to me a few years ago due to their amazing label art. I’ve admitted before that I’ve been known to judge a beer by its cover, and Half Acre has some of the best in the business. Just check out their website and try to tell me I’m wrong (http://halfacrebeer.com/beer/). It also doesn’t hurt that their flagship beer is consider one of the best in its style. Which brings us to today’s review.

Citywalk Pale Ale (Karl Strauss Brewery)

Ever since I moved out of North Hollywood I don’t go to Karl Strauss Brewery as often as I’d like. Once in a while I’ll make my way back to Citywalk with hopes of trying a new beer or two. I found myself at Karl Strauss this past Wednesday and they had a couple of beers on tap that caught my eye. There was a couple big guys on the beer board, so I decided to start it simple and go with a Pale Ale.

Pants Optional Pale Ale (Port Brewing/Pizza Port)

Pale Ales are always a good way to kick off a night of drinking. They’re usually flavorful, but not too big. Have just enough booze, without getting you drunk after one beer.

Pants Optional is an American Pale Ale with a 6.6% ABV.
