Saint Archer Pale Ale

Published On August 27, 2015 | By Stephen Rubke | Anything Beer, Beer Reviews
Yet another brewery on the San Diego scene, Saint Archer distinguishes itself by maintaining a surprisingly limited line up of beers. While this culture of craft beer definitely values diversity, there’s nothing wrong with a brewer who’s dedicated to perfecting the beers that they do make before expanding their menu.

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.

i, I'm Stephen. I'm an airline pilot and reformed beer drinker. Born and raised in southern California and lived the last half of my life in the SF Bay Area. I like sports cars with clutch pedals, airplanes, and both college and pro football. I spent most of my 20's drinking High Life and Rolling Rock, but was shamed into beer snobbery by the woman who would become my wife. Currently I enjoy travelling around the country and searching out the local beers. Cheers!
