Notes/Commercial Description:
Finch's Pale Ale is a refreshing experience from the pop of the top. Its fresh and hoppy taste with just enough supporting malt makes it easy to kick back more than just one. Our late kettle additions of American hop varieties and dry hopping techniques make this beer one of our favorites. The citrus hop character balanced with a malty backbone creates a delicious, accessible pale ale that is sure to satisfy with every sip. Enjoy this pale with just about any pairing of your choice.

16oz can, Pours a medium amber with a medium slowly fading white head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus and pine hops, pale malt. Taste the same as aroma with malt and bready notes, mild hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finish is pale malt, citrus with pine and citrus hops bitterness for balance. Overall a good drinking pale ale.

A: cloudy; burnt orange; with a fairly aggressive pour, got a 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a ring around the edge of the glass; nice lacing;

S: dank pine, earthiness; a little citrus in the background;

T: earthiness with a little citrus and a little minty herbalness; well balanced, but kind of weak; low to moderate bitterness with a bit of orange in the finish;

M: medium bodied; low to moderate carbonation;

O: an interesting take on the style; I expected, and would have preferred, more citrus in the flavor;
