Drop Bear Beer – Yuzu Pale Ale Review

In this article Im reviewing the Yuzu Pale Ale from Drop Bear Beer. This brewery is starting to become quite well-known already on my site because so far I have reviewed several of their beers. The Yuzu Pale Ale is the 4th beer from Drop Bear on this site and previously I have reviewed the following:

I had enjoyed their previous beers quite a lot so I had high expectations of this beer. Luckily it did not disappoint and it might actually be my favourite of all the four beers.

Tasting Notes

The beer pours golden and the head disappears quite quickly. I really did not mind this because after my first sip, I realized that this is the kind of beer I want after a long day at work. The aroma might not have been that impressive because it is quite weak, but the taste is awesome. It is one of those non-alcoholic beers where you are actually doubting it is non-alcoholic – the old familiar “Did they mix up the beers?”.

The carbonation is quite high but on point and the flavour has a nice balance of malts and some citrus flavours from the yuzu. It is not a complex beer at all and it doesnt actually pack a lot of flavour. It is just a good-tasting beer that I could drink quite a few of at any time of the day.

Our Verdict of Yuzu Pale Ale from Drop Bear Beer

When drinking the Yuzu Pale Ale you will not experience an explosion of flavours. There is really not much happening either in the flavour or aroma. I still enjoyed this beer very much because of its solid and balanced flavour and how refreshing the beer is. It is a solid choice for a hot day, that is for sure, but I would drink this beer pretty much any time of the year.

Finally, Ill give this beer the same rating as the Bonfire Stout from the same brewery.

Our craft beer rating: 43/50
