Bear Republic Grand Am Review

Name: Bear Republic Grand Am
Style: American Pale Ale
ABV: 6%

IBUs: 50

Moving on with my Bear Republic beers, for this review we have Grand Am, which is the brewery's American Pale Ale. Taking it's name from the Pontiac Grand Am, it's a name that makes total sense because the "Am" in Grand Am stands for American and this is an American Pale Ale.

Appearance - Cloudy dark orange color with a mild amount of visible carbonation. The head is pretty thin for the most part but the lacing left behind is abundant.

Aroma - Getting some yeasts and potent floral hops upfront with some cracker notes and just a hint of bitter hoppiness accented by some light toffee malts.

Taste - Floral hops, yeast & cracker notes upfront with some bitter hops in the middle. Towards the back I'm getting more of those bitter hops and a good amount of toffee maltiness to help balance it out. The aftertaste is fairly dry save for some very light bitter hops.

Overall, it's a pretty good pale ale. Nothing I haven't seen but it's a great beer nevertheless. If you so happen to come across this, it's certainly worth a look!

Bear Republic Grand Am - 8.5/10
