Had on tap at the MN Craft Brewers Guild Autumn Brew Review 2011 in Minneapolis at the historic Grain Belt Complex. For me this was the best new beer that I had at the fest. Delicous pale ale. The brewer even put a fresh hop cone right into the brew. By far the best Pale Ale I have had to date! if you ever get the chance do not pass this one up!

Fitger's Starfire Pale Ale, #3 in a series of 4 growlers from the Brewhouse.

Big, blooming head, clear, light amber color...let's call it apricot.

Lightly hoppy aroma, little bitterness, but a lot of fruit. Citrus is taken care of, but we get peach and apricot, as well.

Taste: finally, bitterness comes in, right at the first swallow, and linger on lightly in this medium-bodied ale. Small astringency on the palate, light malt body, easy-drinking and mellow, with no hindrance to consumption and enjoyment. Unless, that is, you are impervious to the pleasures of hops on the tongue.

An utterly delightful pale ale, that I hope to send down my throat again, without too much delay.

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

White head with nice lace. Color is a clear golden orange.

Aroma: pale bready malts with some orange citrus. Grassy and floral hops.

Taste: much hoppier than the nose. Lots of sticky and floral hops. Grapefruit and orange peel. Hop resiny.

Mouthfeel. Sticky and bitter. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, a solid pale ale. Tons of hops. I like it.

Serving type: on-tap
