Northbound Smokehouse Brewery, Minneapolis, MN, Light Rail Pale Ale. ABV…not sure…let's look it up…
Clear, bright peach-y appearance, with a slim, but staying slightly off-white head.
Aroma: Lightly bitter, herbal notes. bold citrus tones unfolding. A little floral. Not sure what hops are in this, or any of the ingredients, really, but it's nicely hopped.
Taste: Brash hop delivery at the fore, moderately bitter, but long lasting on the palate. Nice, herbal tone, with a crisp, graham cracker-y malt background. Bright, citrus-y, spicy, herbal hop character never quits, hangs in the back, front and sides.
Pale ales get a bad rap from beer geeks, but they've always been big with beer drinkers. One side demands higher hops and bigger booze, and the other just wants a tasty brew. This one is a great drinker that should please them both.
A perfect delight.

This beer arrives a hazy orange-amber color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes into a nice cap of lacing. The aroma is of mangoes, passion fruit, tangerines, and peaches. Its aromatics are quite unique. The taste is similar to the aroma with a nice dry bitterness in thd finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a smooth texture, and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a really well crafted pale ale. I can see myself drinking this regularly in the future.
