Name: 21st Amendment Brewery Bitter American
Location: San Francisco, CA
Type: Extra Pale Ale
Availability: The can says seasonal release, but the website says year-round
Price: $7.49/six pack, found it at Whole Foods on sale for $6.99/six pack! yay!
Aroma: bitter hops
Appearance: Deep gold, clear, small head retention, great lacing.
Body & Texture: Smooth, little bite, light-medium bodied. Not overly carbonated but just enough.
Aftertaste: Clean light bitterness, slight malt flavor, and a little pine.
This is the ultimate summer beer. Cans make it easy to bring along to the pool, river, beach, lake, camping, anywhere you can think of! No need to look down on the can, cans can help keep beer fresh by not allowing any light to touch the beer. One of the best aspects of Bitter American is its low abv, making it a perfect session beer. Your six pack of Bitter American most likely won't last long. David calls it his "studying" beer, because it's light enough for him to drink while doing his calculus homework. Bitter American quickly became one of mine and David's favorite beers this summer. I definitely recommend it!
