Bought this 5.5 % Verdant Brewing Co. Headband Pale Ale for the pretty can and funky name, but it really delivered. The radiant orange American pale style brew is ripe with flavour, from tropical and citrus fruits to “stinky” cheese and caramel, all working together in perfect harmony with the Headband’s crystal and Munich malts.
It’s bitter. It’s sweet. It’s dank. And it’s juicy. The hops pop and the texture’s thick, rich and delicious. The smooth, low carbonation also adds to the beer’s potency, making sure it’s refreshing, delectable and moreish.
