Full Sail "Pale Ale"
Full Sail Brewing Company - Hood River, Oregon USA
Pale Ale (ABV 5.4%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a crystal clear sparkling light to medium amber with a slight yellow hue and a head that was average sized (1-2 finger), fizzy and white and had fair lacing.

The aroma was kind of mild of a grain malt, a citrus hop and a musty scented yeast with a hint of caramel and grapefruit.

The taste was just a tad sweet and acidic with a mild caramel note at first and then became a little bitterer and a touch hoppy with a definite note of citrus (grapefruit) at the end. The flavor hung around for a little while after the swallow leaving a bit of bitterness to linger on.

Mouthfeel was a shade or two above light in body and dry but also watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation.

Overall a decent Pale Ale, one that goes down easy and finishes nice...
