BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Peak Organic Brewing Company
Maine, United States

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.

Great bubbly aroma and visual appearance and very crisp taste, however didn't excite me as much as I had hoped though it's flavor intrigued me to want to taste more of the flavor! I really respect a crisp taste on a beer even though it is not their most well known beer, so I will definitely try their stronger IPA next, good things expected. This one was a little disappointing especially living so close to the city

I decided to give Peak Organic a try and I was not disappointed. I snagged a 12 pack sampler for 14.99 and all four offerings were enjoyable. The pale ale poured in to a pint glass had a decent head and not overpowering aroma. This beer was tasty and affordable which in these rough economic times is exactly what I am looking for!

On-tap 6/23/2013 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, caramelized malts and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a hearty malt character followed by a quick burst of caramel and citrus sweetness. The hops presence is strong but not over-powering and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.
