Balter XPA (Extra Pale Ale)
Style: American Pale Ale
Format: 375ml Can
It might be pale but there's nothing weak about this bad boy. Tropical and floral aromatics set off a fruity palette that will punch your taste buds in the pleasure zone. Finished with a refreshing bitterness the XPA is tailored for those who enjoy a fully-hopped beer that's still easy to drink.
Note: Balter beers are canned with 6 month best before dates.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Old can unfortunately
The 2 cans I received were 10 months old, so unfortunately a lot of the flavour had disappeared, what was left was pretty bland, and I couldn't give it a fair go. The 3 star rating isn't a slight on the beer itself (which I can't fairly review), just the condition it was received in.
X. P. Awesome
If you are a fan of my reviews then you may start to see my love for the West Coast style of I.P.A and X.P.A over the East Coast and this beer is all about that. Filled with a golden floral/ fruitiness that ends with a nice bitterness its the perfect stable in my week that works with so many dishes. People have said its too sweet but I find this very similar yet infinitely better to a Stone and Wood Pacific ale.
Nice hit of citrus. You can easily have a session with this beer on a warm day
Could drink all day
A very solid beer with no flaws.
