3.7/5 rDev +5.7%
Poured from a 12 oz can into an oversized wineglass. No freshness date present. Single purchased at Craft Beer Cellar (Waterbury, VT).
A: Crystal clear orange with 1.5 fingers of sticky, frothy beige head with good retention and lace formations up and down the glass (4.25).
S: Biscuit and bready malt aromas are most distinct with some orange marmalade and honeysuckle hops aromas. No yeast or alcohol are detectable. (3.5)
T: The flavor is varied and interesting without being overpowering. The maltiness is most upfront with biscuit, bread, soda cracker, and light and medium caramel flavors. This works well with the herbal, lightly grassy, floral hops character which is accented with heavy orange and lime flavors. Bitterness is light and pleasant. No yeast or alcohol character. (4.0)
M: The mouthfeel is light as planned with light-medium body and low carbonation, to enhance the impression of mouthfeel and keep it from seeming watery, which I think Baxter succeeded in doing pretty well. (3.75)
O: While nothing way out there, Pamola does a very good job of being a light yet memorable pale ale which provides a lot of flavor in a session ale package. I liked this beer and would go for it again. It provides a nice blend of premium English bitter with American pale ale (much like 21A Bitter American but with more malt-focus and less blasting away with hops).

3.4/5 rDev -2.9%
12oz can. Pours a translucent burnt orange with a half inch of head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is bready with some citrus and spicy hop notes. Taste is more of the bread and somewhat watery. Light hop spice, but not much flavor to this one. Finishes with bready malts. Not much of an alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is light and thin. Overall, instantly forgettable.
