Brewed by:
Tuckerman Brewing Co.
New Hampshire, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our flagship Pale Ale, released in 1998, is brewed with specialty malts, some grown in Maine, and four types of hops. After fermentation, it is cold conditioned and dry-hopped in lagering tanks for maximum taste and quality. It is naturally carbonated in the bottle or keg using a German process called “krausening”, where a small amount of fresh fermenting wort is added. This produces a delicate carbonation and superior flavor. From the Mash Tun to store shelves is a 30 day process.

A - pours a rusty amber color with hints of gold towards the bottom of the glass and fairly thick white foam on top. Decent retention.

S - the aroma is faint. citrus zest and white grapes are most prominent. Hints of caramel and toasty grains in the background.

T - sweet caramel and toast flavors up front. Sweet and bitter collide in the center with notes of citrus and earthy bitterness while white grape juice flavors add more sweet character. Finish is snappy, quick and dry.

M - lighter side of medium bodied. Slightly watery texture. Carbonation is on the lower side.

O - alright pale ale. I like how crisp the finish is but the grape juice sweetness doesn't agree with me at all.

Crisp, refreshing with a nice hoppiness and clean malt taste. Well balanced, without much aftertaste. This is not a strong, flavorful brew, but would make an excellent session beer. This is a good one to take camping, or to throw in the cooler for a backyard barbecue.
