Beer Review: Pelican Brewing Elemental Fresh Hop Ale


$6.50 for this at Bridgetown Beerhouse. Had to try it. Fresh hop beers are my most favorite, and one with this much Sterling hops? Had to try it..

Appearance: (4.0)
- Nice light clear copper orange/amber. Fluffy quickly dissipating head, leaves lacing all about the glass, and a thin pillow above the bubbling brew. Not bad.

Smell: (4.0)
- Very grassy, and light citrus hops. Zesty, and somewhat spicy. A bit biscuity, and lightly sweet. Certainly some interesting character here, and I can't quite pinpoint what else it is i am getting in the smell. Perhaps just an earthy robust wet hop.

Taste: (4.0)
- Certainly another winning fresh hop ale. Great zesty and grassy sterling hops. Light light lemon-like zing, rather bready malt base, and just more grassy hops. Certainly not an overly sweet beer by any means. You can tell the focus is on the hops. Lovely beer.

Mouth Feel: (4.0)
- Quite the bitter beer which leaves a cloying and dry feel in the mouth. It's a bubbly well-carbed brew which is rather light to medium bodied. Certainly full flavored. Supper nice bitter touch and finish.

Overall: (4.5)
- This is another one of those fresh hop beers to put at the top of the list. Very unique, tasty, and easy to drink. Certainly sitting up there with or next to number one so far this year for fresh hop beers.

A- / 4.1
