New Belgium "Dig"
New Belgium Brewing Company - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
American Pale Ale (ABV 5.6%) (IBU 36)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was an orangey copper with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that diminished rapidly down to a large collar and a light residue left floating on top that allowed for some excellent sticky lacing.

The aroma was of a straw malt, a grassy hop and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange and lemon).

The taste was very mildly malty and a tad bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel from the start with the finish being a good bit bitterer with a big note of citrus at the end. The flavor was short lived and with an almost tasteless ending.

Mouthfeel was just a shade above light in body with a nice dry texture and a semi-fizzy carbonation.

Overall a brew with a refreshing citrusy fruity taste and had a really nice springtime feel to it...
