Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 04-28-2002

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Sports a delightful malt smoothness and a playful hop bitterness. Dry hopping, the practice of adding additional hops to the aging vessel, provides an enticing fresh Cascade hop aroma.

On draught at MSBC, Wolf Spirit is sparking pale caramel with a small white collar leaving scattered lace.

Smell is wet malty grains (which is basically what beer is, but I mean this smells like a mash tun).

Taste is pretty mild, but enjoyable. A nice bready flavor is dominant, and there's a decent bitterness, with a touch of herbal woodiness.

Mouthfeel is very creamy, and medium light bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good, a tasty little pale ale if you're not just fixing for your hops. Not exciting, but that's not the point. Closer to British style then your average American pale ale these days, but still a little extra alcohol and hops.

This pale ale is true to style. I can;t really identify any unique flavor characteristics. Good on tap and from bottle. This is a great beer to stay with if you only want to stick to one beer style for an evening.
