Notes / Commercial Description:
Brilliant clarity, bright golden in color. Pamola Pours with a nice creamy head and subtle malt and hop aroma. Crisp, clean, effervescent start with a touch of malt character and a balanced bitterness. Hop flavors linger nicely. Finishes clean, crisp and dry with a light body. Pamola is brewed with pure, soft Maine water from Lake Auburn; three different hop varieties, plus domestic and imported “Character” malts provide complexity, color and body while making use of a clean, well attenuating, top-fermenting American ale yeast. The beer is then cold conditioned for a smooth, clean and crisp flavor. This one is extremely drinkable!

27.5 IBU

Poured from a 12oz. can into. Dogfish Head pint glass.

The color is hazy yellow/gold with a finger of foamy white head some thin lacing left on the glass.

The smell is bready with a dry biscuit aroma. There is a slight wheat aroma that comes out slightly with a small amount of grassy hop aroma.

The taste has an earthy grass flavor that is layered under a watery malt flavor. There is a slight spice flavor that is a little pepper-like. There is a slight citrus flavor comes out a way in the back and sometimes does not appear.

The feel of this beer is light with a nice smooth body. There is a good drinkable feel here that is pleasant and enjoyable.

An excellent example of an American Pale Ale. Clean, smooth, delicate and well balanced. Would rank it among the best.
Very impressed.
