November Gale Pale Ale is translucent with a bright, glowing sunset orange body and mild haze. A modest antique white, soapy cap covers the body while large carbonation rushes to the surface. Some nice patchy lacing clings to the glass. Good looking beer.

Citric hoppiness leads the way in the nose, orange and grapefruit in that order of intensity. The orange is sweet and the grapefruit is just kind of there. The malt profile shows clean graininess, a touch of caramel, and some dry white toast. Not bad, but a little ho hum.

The flavor is similiar to the aroma, a little more robust even. The orange brightens up and is on the sweet side as the sugared grapefruit becomes more pronounced and less muddled than in the nose. Malt profile runs the same, clean graininess, soft caramel, and a little toast.

The weight is on the lower side of moderate and, while this is very minor, it actually feels to light at times. The bitterness is on the low end of the spectrum and the drinkability is sky high.

Overall, November Gale is a solid, no brainer pale ale. This beer won't knock your socks off or wow your friends but it is a sturdy choice as an activity beer whether that's keeping busy on the grill, doing yardwork, or hanging out at a party. I could see myself picking this up again, especially at $7.99 a 6-pack.

3.73/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- big 2 fingers of light beige head that dissipates slowly, good amount of swirling carbonation, light amber

Smell- Decent amount of floral hops with some light toffee sweetness, some breadiness as well with a bit of grain, not much in terms of bite to the hops

Taste- The front is light and sweet while the mid-mouth holds most of the flavor, grains and some slight hop bitter on the back

Mouthfeel- light/medium, not as heavy as an amber but not as light as a pilsner, halfway between water and milk, seems about right

Overall- this is a pale ale, plain and simple, it does the trick as a beer you can have after some strenuous work and most definitely sessionable. I'd get another 6-pack.
