On tap at the brewpub, served in a shaker pint. Billed as a "West Coast Amber Ale".

Bright copper color, sticky long lasting foam that creates a thick ring of drippy lacing. Bready aroma, specialty malt coming through with some earthy herbal spice. Very clean, light bodied and easily drinkable... sessionable even if I didn't already have stuff to do. A bit hoppier than Miner's Treasure, which they really need to ditch and brew this year round instead, if they had any idea about craft beer. Brewer here has some talent, let the guy brew already... please ditch the "pre-fab, mass appeal brewpub" template and get down to business.

Paradox pours slightly cloudy, with a deep amber color and a good head that nicely laces the pint glass.

The “paradox” of this beer is that while it’s a malty amber ale, it has a great hop presence that balances the beer out. You get the sweetness of the malt with a clean and bright finish that lingers pleasantly.

Paradox would pair well with spicy Oriental food as well as beef and chicken entrees.

Paradox is a seasonal beer available on draft only at Galena Brewing Company and area restaurants and bars.
