CAPTAIN LAWRENCE FRESHCHESTER PALE ALE 11/3/15

Yet another selection from the mixed sixpack I composed on a recent trip to NY state. Captain Lawrence products are not distributed in my state.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Lawson's stemmed tulip.

a: Clear copper with a finger and a half thick offwhite head which receded to mainly thin surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Alcohol with a few light fruit notes

t; Biscuit malt under slight plum notes, light to moderate hop bite balances the dry finish.

m; Light to medium, ok body, heavy carbonation tingle.

o; An easy drinking pale ale. More a dinner beer than a sipper.

Had on tap at the Wood'n'Tap bar in Wallingford. Decent craft selection there! Was a really nice APA, definitely an all-around balanced kind of beer, but when fresh it leans towards hoppy. Light on the body and very drinkable.
