Nothing flashy or fantastic about this beer. It's like a dependable domestic partner. A decent pale ale that does the trick. Will pick it up again. Looking forward to visiting the brewery.

Just had Whale’s Tale at a hotel bar in Boston. It had a copper color and a thin white head. Modest aroma and a bready malt taste with citrus, caramel and mild bitterness. A bit light in my opinion but OK.

Pour - Pours semi transparent copper color very thin white head that dissipates quickly some lacing.

Smell - sweet malts and bread not getting much else.

Taste - slight citrus pale malts very little bitterness.

Feel - Very light feel very smooth.

Overall - A good pale ale I would have again.
