Speakeasy Untouchable Pale Ale

One of the things that obviously drew me to this beer was the label design. I've always liked the style of that era, from clothing, to cars, and the music. I even recall the time when the Dick Tracy movie came out in 1990 and there were all these toys and promo items related to it. I'm thinking back to the details when trading cards were huge in the 90's, with special cards tucked into packs randomly and when toys were ripe with jagged edges and not rounded like the ones today. Those were some seriously good times for toys where action figures ruled and comic books were found in newstands all over. I really do miss 90's, long before the internet, the vast amount of misinformation and the mobs of anonymous internet banter.

The one thing the beer bottle reminded me of was this No Fear logo from the 90's:

This American pale ale is heavy without a bitter bite, and is not overly carbonated. There is less of a bite than Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but there is no less flavor to it. It is a bit on the sweeter side without leaving too much of an aftertaste. This is the type of beer to drink one or two of at once and that is it, it's carbonated and on the heavy side and doesn't leave room for much else.
