“An exceptionally easy drinking light bodied ale. A smooth refreshing blonde, flavored with wild flower honey to enhance your drinking pleasure.” 5.5% ABV
Poured from a 22 oz bomber into my nonic glass. Sancha is a golden-yellow in color and pretty translucent; just a bit of light haze. The head pours very thin, nearly white, and dissipates to nearly nothing quickly. Minimal carbonation, as well as little lacing, is shown on the glass.
The only scent I get is of light, honey-citrus hops with a hint of sweet malts.
Medium-thin bodied, going down smooth and a bit watery. The initial flavor is of the very light hopiness offered in the nose. After it goes down, it gives off a faint municipal water supply flavor, before giving way to a generic grainy aftertaste.
To me, Sancha appears to be a beer made to appeal to the masses. Light on flavor with nothing offensive, and can be easily sessioned at just 5.5% abv. I definitely prefer a beer that has more flavor. I didn’t think it is a terrible beer, but I also would’t call it a good beer, just drinkable. 5/10.
