Ricohet Biscuit West Coast Pale Ale (The Wee Beer Shop) By @SpectreUK

Ricohet Biscuit West Coast Pale Ale

I have a favourite meal of mine tonight, and no, it's not a takeaway. I have schnitzels tonight, with Smily Face potatoes and a bowl full of salad. I used to have them around Christmas time, or on Christmas Day. Then we changed to three in one bird, and now to my ultimate favourite, Pork Belly with crackling. So, now I have schnitzels whenever, or once a blue moon, which we did have one this week.

Produced by Pomona Island Brew Co., this 5.2% in volume Ricohet Biscuit West Coast Pale Ale should go rather well washing down my schnitzels. Dry-hopped with Citra and Azacca hops, Ricohet Biscuit should have a strong sharp citrus bitterness, with notes of mango, pineapple, tangerine and a little pine and spiciness. I'm looking forward to this West Coast Pale Ale just on making notes about it.

On opening the can there was quite an excitable pop and froth, but I promise I didn't lose more than a couple of drops on the floor. This deep golden in colour West Coast Pale Ale certainly had a fruity aroma of mango and tangerine, with a touch of citrus, pine and spices.

On taste Ricohet Biscuit had a sharp citrus bitterness to begin with, mixed with a little woodiness and warming spices. There was fruitiness here too with notes of mango, tangerine and even a touch of pineapple, just before the sweetness of pale malts took my mouthwatering tastebuds off into the aftertaste. Perfect with my schnitzels, I would definitely have another Ricohet Biscuit again, but preferably before the next blue moon.
