BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Peak Organic Brewing Company
Maine, United States
peakbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Pale Ale is a complex hybrid between a West-Coast Pale Ale and a British-Style Pale Ale. An abundance of Cascade Hops gives this beer a citrusy, floral nose. We use a high percentage of Caramel Malt to provide a stark contrast to the hoppy front palate, giving our pale ale a smooth, malty finish.

Poured it. Got a small head. Pours light gold in color with some carbonation. Smelled really good, citrus smell and I almost got a hint of pineapple or something that reminded me of it with the citrus/sweet smell. The taste is a little hoppy. Definitely some citrus and grapefruit stand out right away with a subtle sweetness that lingers in there. Clean and refreshing taste. Overall it's pretty good beer

Appearance - Pours a gold with two fingers of bubbly effervescent head.

Smell - adjunct aromas, biscuity malts, leafy hops, slight hint of lemon, hay.

Taste - Predominately malt based followed by the leafy hops. The adjunct aromas are there but not as potent as in the aroma.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with very high carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall - A lackluster APA that needs a lot of tweaking. A better substitute for a macro type beer but nothing worth seeking out for.

Amber, lightly oranged. Lightly hazy. Not so beautiful foam, off-white.
Light smell, malty, biscuit hint, light hop.
Light taste, same malty and biscuity notes. Il slips away, leaving almost anythng in the aftertaste.
Just a bit of hop.
Nothing remarkable.

I agree with A bros and consensus views on Peak and on their Pale Ale.

A: Flattish - Pours a clear golden color that behaves like a mass made beer with a modest head that retains and laces only a little.

S: Toffee, sweet butter, plus earthy hop. Again sweet buttery like mass made.

T: The best part. Follows smell with biscuity, toffee flavor that flows into an earthy, grassy hop finish. Nice finish, but bland and light.

F: Light body with mid carbonation, thin.

O - Nice organic, sessionable, but vanilla pale ale.

Pours a semi hazy straw color with a slight light orange tint. Minimal head quickly recedes and leaves a thin collar.
Citrusy twang in the aroma with a light herbal hops complimenting it.
Clean and dry in the palate. Medium mouthfeel with a lightness that is drinkable. Crisp bite from the carbonation. The hops pack a modest punch that is citrusy-grapefruit like- semi sharp pine and moderately bitter yet accessible.
A decent APA that is easy to drink and mild. Not as flavorful or complex as other offerings, but nevertheless a good alternative.

Very disappointing. Pale yellow in color. Smell is similar to sweaty clothing stuck in a gym bag for a few days. Taste is slightly better but I am not impressed with the Peak Organic mix pack (IPA, Pale, Summer Session and Nut Brown).
