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!

27.5 IBU

12oz, canned 7.7.11.

Pours a light amber, very clear. Head is creamy and white, but short-lived.

Aroma has a tiny whiff of earthy and citrusy hops, but it's kind of a tease.

Flavor has a nice biscuity malt character, very clean and refreshing. Spicy and earthy hops, but mainly malt. Bitter but balanced. Smooth and light mouthfeel with tasteful carbonation.

Subtle and solid pale ale. Really drinkable.

EDIT 2012: This beer is really all over the place. I've had some infected and oxidized cans since writing the above review. I am downgrading my scores accordingly.

Color is a thin yellow gold, just a shade darker than most macros. Smell of grass, stagnant water. Taste is decent though -- light and fizzy with a bit of a malty bite. Ideal for outdoors on a hot day. It's like what I wish a Miller Lite actually tasted like.

A pretty good brew. A good balance of malts and a bit of hops to add a little bitterness but nothing major. The smell was quite fruity so i was expecting more of a fruit flavor however any fruitiness is faint yet there is definitely some there. The mouth feel is quite good, with good carbonation and a pretty dry finish. Overall a pretty good pale ale, crisp and refreshing.
