Zeke’s Pale Ale

Old Zeke, is not a remarkable man, but he makes his way through the world in a different manner.  He is not quite unique, but enough so to stand out from the cookie cutter universe he inhabits.  He is not someone you would go out of your way to spend time with but are always happy to stumble upon while mingling at a party.  His sense of humor is not shocking or caustic, but his delivery of old jokes always seems to produce a chuckle from the two or three listeners standing near.

Zeke’s Pale Ale has a nice citrusy hop nose.  Its flavor on the other hand leaves much to be desired.  I can hardly taste any hops at all.  Far from tasty like a pale ale, its dark coloration is also strange for a beer in this style.  This beer isn’t bad but it isn’t great or even good for that matter.  There is something lacking, which causes the aftertaste to be more than a bit off.  This pale ale is better than your run of the mill big brewery beer, but that’s not saying much, especially since it’s coming from a craft beer brewery.  If given a choice I would definitely reach for some other American Pale Ale.

Zeke’s Pale Ale was first released in February of this year, 2014.  It’s the first year round brew that O’Fallon brewery has introduced in 4 years (Hemp Hop Rye being released in 2010, is no longer the youngest).

I haven’t struggled to reach my word limit minimum in quite awhile.  This brew is making me resort to meta-filler, which you are reading now.  I wish I had more to say but this beer has left me lacking in flavor satisfaction and words.

One thought on “Zeke’s Pale Ale

  1. BRANDON,

    WHEN I SAW YOUR REVIEW OF THIS BEER I IMMEDIATELY THOUGHT OF UNCLE RICHIE’S DOG ZACHARY. HE USED TO SIT IN FRONT OF THE SPEAKER AND WHEN WE PLAYED SUPERTRAMP’S “TAKE THE LONG ROAD HOME”, WITH THE HARMONICA AT THE BEGINNING, ZACHARY WOULD SING ALONG WITH THE HARMONICA. AND SHINER IS STILL THE “NATIONAL BEER OF TEXAS”
