Ale review: Gin Lane, Brains Craft Brewery

If pale ale was a perfume…

Honestly? I was a little disappointed by this. But only because Brains Craft Brewery usually knocks my socks off, and the name of this beer built a little too much anticipation.

I was hoping the juniper notes would add depth, but in reality the botanicals added too much sweetness, and all in all I found this just a bit too safe. There was a bit too much orange for my taste. I think I would have liked it a whole lot more if it was cold and on keg (and it takes a LOT for me to say that). Think I’ll be sticking to the darker Brains Craft Brewery cask stuff in the future.
