It seems that Saint Archer is indeed focused on perfection. No goofy names. No wild label art. Just simple bottles and cans delivering a quality drink. The Pale Ale doesn’t disappoint.
It’s an interesting genre to find yourself so impressed. I’m of the opinion that the American Pale Ales have replaced lagers and pilsners as America’s go to beer. Well, at least among the snob class. It’s frequently lighter and more drinkable than some of the more “serious” beers that we’ve come to love.
Saint Archer’s effort here is impressively smooth, balanced and full of character. It’s an amazing everyday or any day beer. She’s not a supermodel, but she’s that really cool girl next door. 4/5.
