Maine, United States
baxterbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Year-round

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!

Misc.: N/A (couldn’t read BOD stamp)

Poured a yellow, golden, hazy color with four fingers of fluffy, white head, which overtook the glass. Very light bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Average amount of foamy lacing. Very good retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled very malty, getting earthy rye, caramel, Cascade, marmalade, sour fruit, peach, floral and apricot. (Smell - 3.50)

Taste followed the nose, getting those earthy, rye, sour fruit notes. Also marmalade jelly, juicy peach, dark apricot, lemon and more spoiled fruit. (Taste - 3.50)

Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50)

This was just an OK pale ale. I wouldn’t have it again on purpose. (Overall - 3.50)

Look: Golden towards yellow in color; completely transparent. Lots of medium bubbles visible. Pours was a large 3 finger head that dies down leaving an uneven thin layer of foam on the surface of the beer. Some lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Not much in terms of aroma; mild grassy - malt scent.

Taste: Malt, mild grain flavor, extremely mild hoppy taste. Tastes like a good quality commercial light ale; similar to a lager in taste. Not bad, but nothing spectacular.

Feel: Thinner body. Mild carbonation provides a slight fizzy sensation. Mild, dry finish but not overly dry; refreshing.

Overall: A decent lighter-bodied ale, but nothing special. Would be good on a hot day. I would drink again, but probably will not purchase again only because there are so many better beers out there.
