At The Blind Tiger, NYC: hopefully I'm reviewing the correct beer, as the beer I had was 'Firestone Walker Nectar Pale Ale', but I don't see anything else on the list that resembles what I had. Anyway, this beer poured orange copper with a very thin white head and spotty lacing. The aroma was dominated by pine, with only feint hints of grass, lemon, and yellow grapefruit. The flavor was a nicely balanced mix of piney hops and malt throughout, with a smooth finish. Nice carbonated mouthfeel makes for a good session pale ale, but if this beer had a more varied flavor profile (e.g. more than just pine), it would be fantastic.

Serving type: on-tap
