Peak Organic Pale Ale
Peak Organic Pale Ale, 5.05% from Portland, ME.
Our local beer place was running a crazy sale on a mixed 12 pack...$7.99? Sure, I'll try them. First up is the pale ale. It pours a nice golden brown, with a nice head. I wasn't expecting this to be bottle-finished, so I accidentally muddied an otherwise clear beer with the yeast in the bottom of the bottle.
It smells sweet, slightly herbal...the taste is fairly light, with sweetness followed by a nice hop punch and slightly citrus notes.
It's an easy drinking little number, with a nice hop presence.
