12 oz bottle poured into an MKE tulip.
5% ABV,

A - This faintly hazed golden pale ale pours with a small white head that disappears into the dormant brew almost immediately but leaves a little ring of foam left clinging to the glass.

S - The aromatic hop blend of Cascade and East Kent Goldings gushes fourth from the pour. Citrus grapefruit and light orange tease with a kiss of pine and a floral/herbal notes. Give the beer a swirl and you'll awaken traces of resiny plastic which aren't entirely pleasant but quickly fade into it's light malt backbone.

T - A hop-smack in the mouth, Pull Chain debuts with the blend of herbal citrus and floral notes the aroma foreshadowed, all tightly packed. Individual nuances are less called out but grapefruit rind is one of the more prominent characteristics that rests on the subdued pale malt base.

M - Citrus notes the hops offer aid in making Pull Chain feel like a lighter bodied pale with nice dryness. It's quite crisp and refreshing, finishing with a light touch of grapefruit bitterness for a nice-bodied pale!

O - Strong drinkability emanates from Pull Chain due to it's careful balance of mild maltiness balancing out forward hoppiness in aroma, flavor, and moderate bitterness. Pull Chain Pale Ale is a very solid go-to brew from the guys at MKE. (1,306 characters)

Bottle pour from brewery into a snifter glass. Orange amber, 2 finger head with excellent lacing. Pours and looks awesome.

Aroma more subdued with hops. Very earthy, lemon, grass and nice malt backbone.

Taste is very much like the aroma. Less floral overtones than other types for this style. It's more subtle. Less pine, more balanced.

Very drinkable, with a bit of hop bitterness on the back end that lingers.

Thought this beer is a solid offering. Ok, it's not 3F zombie dust or daisy cutter but a nice everyday beer that you can drink with friends and come back to. Should get more credit then some of the reviews here. (630 characters)

Pours deep golden amber with a thin, creamy head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of citric and floral notes with caramelized bread.

The taste of citric and hop bitterness is balanced by caramelized malt sweetness and a touch of plastic-like resin through the middle. Bready and hoppy dryness in the finish.

It has medium carbonation with a lighter side of medium body.

A bitter-leaning pale ale, but still easy enough to drink. Not a bad brew! (451 characters)
