Notes/Commercial Description:
Brilliant clarity, bright golden in color. Pamola Pours with a nice creamy head and subtle malt and hop aroma. Crisp, clean, effervescent start with a touch of malt character and a balanced bitterness. Hop flavors linger nicely. Finishes clean, crisp and dry with a light body. Pamola is brewed with pure, soft Maine water from Lake Auburn; three different hop varieties, plus domestic and imported “Character” malts provide complexity, color and body while making use of a clean, well attenuating, top-fermenting American ale yeast. The beer is then cold conditioned for a smooth, clean and crisp flavor. This one is extremely drinkable!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. can poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden straw with a big white head. Moderate lacing and heavy carbonation. Paler than I'd expected - looks sort of lager-like.

Aroma: Smells of lemongrass, biscuit, grapefruit, citrus, and some sweet malt.

Taste: The taste follows the nose, with citrus taking the lead. This is somewhat like a cream ale/pale ale hybrid, with the heft of the former and bitter bite of the latter. I like it. Nice malt backbone, too.

Mouthfeel: Nice drinkable depth. Good session beer.

Overall: A nice offering from Baxter that offers folks some good versatility. It's complex enough to pair with a good meal, but also fine for cookouts or just hanging around. I'd have another.

Pours a light yellow with almost no head. Nice and easy to drink. Not too complicated. A nice touch of malt and almost grassy if that makes any sense. I could drink several of these on a hot day.


Wife's Review: "It's good. Simple and easy to drink. Give me more."
