3.98/5  rDev +22.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: Vintage style 9.3 oz brown bottle with a red plastic tapered top with cork inset.

Appearance: Slightly hazy orange copper with a thin bubbly bone coloured lace.

Smell: Grapefruit and pineapple in the nose from the alcoholic esters. Mild earth aroma from the hops.

Taste: Crisp mouthfeel with a light snappy carbonation, medium to full in body and a touch of slickness in the mouth feel. Juicy fruit all around of citrius and apples that leaves a faint tart twang throughout. Biscuit like malt flavours are an even match for the earthy hops that still have a small kick of bitterness. Warming sensation from the alcohol becomes more evident towards the middle of the glass. A pretty clean finish with few remains of grain and hop.

Notes: Could use additional months of maturation to meld flavours together. Still a brew to reckon with and a brew to respect, boasts a 9.0% abv. Well built and just enough hops to malt for a good balance.

Ok, I'm not that into Gale beer mostly because I do not like the vinous character most of them have. This one on the other hand didn't (at least not the one I had) and over all a very enjoyable beer. It is was it bills itself as and that is a 9% pale ale. This was nice beer but until Gale moves to a flared cork or cork and cap I am always going to be rather skittish about buying thier beers.

Another intersting brew from Gale's. They say it's a "Pale Ale" but at 9%, I don't think so ... perhaps in colour, but that's it. It's a Strong Ale.

Comes in a stubby, long neck with cork and seal. Cork smells cidery. Beer is near flat with a rich golden colour. A bottled-conditioned, so I pour slowly. Smell is cidery and musty. Flavour is quite tart at first with distinct apple flavours, including apple skin tannins and musty flavours. Hint of ginger/spice. There's some medicinal flavours, too. The 9% alcohol is not detectable in flavour, but you can feel it warm the body. Sweetness is low. Bitterness is not from an discernable hop variety, but probably from long aging and funky bacterias.

Hey, if I wanted a cider!! ... just kidding. I'm always amazed at the depth of character with beers. This Strong Pale Ale is very much like an aged wine, or a cider.
