Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

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!

pours a shade darker than straw gold. close to gold with a solid white head and constant bubbles from carbonation. nucleated glasses really show that off.

smells like malt and hops, very plain aroma.

taste is clean, slight sweetness from the hops as well. goes down smooth, easy drinker for sure.

definitely not an "Xtra Pale Ale", its a small pale ale. if not for the full(er) body i would think it's a pale lager. a small yet clean pale ale. wouldn't search this out but good for a variety pack. the Baxter variety pack has been good so far

12 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and some fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal hops dominate the palate while bready malt and ripe fruit provide support. Finish is long and very bitter. Nice, hoppy brew.
