COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Donít be fooled by the powerful hop aroma of Field 41 Pale Ale. This perfectly sessionable, but generously dry-hopped, Pale Ale drinks easy with a smooth bitterness and is named for the hop field that is home to Bale Breaker Brewing Company. Light and refreshing, itís the perfect beer for a day on the river or afternoon on the slopes.

12oz can picked up from Brewforia Meridian for $2.... Poured into my tall goblet and it produces 1" of white foam that produces decent white lacing.. the brew is fairly clear golden. Good citrus hops with some background tropical fruity notes... lite pale maltiness that helps bloom the hops. Flavor mirrors the nose... but seems weak on the palate overall... A light body makes for a IMO a bit of a watery profile... Still very drinkable... sessionable even. My big bitch would be this seems like an old can.... I picked it up off of a shelf that was obviously room temperature... just seems a bit stale/old. I bet this would be great very fresh... and it is something that many breweries donít do... Low ABV/sessionable pale ales are great... this one just didnít seem "fresh".

Can at Ranch-a-Thon. Aroma is incredible. Fresh and juicy hop, pine, hay and some Christmas. Taste is a little thin but a very nice hop background and slight sweetness and assertiveness. Nice session ale for RATXV.

jbeatty (949) - New York, USA - APR 17, 2014
Can, 04/17/2014. Pours golden pale amber, white head with decent retention, medium sticky lacing around the glass. Aroma is floral, tropical citrus hops, resinous, mild pine. Taste is smooth, bright citrus hops, moderate pine, toasted caramel malts, nice lingering bitterness. Medium light body, drinks real easy. Very tasty.

Bacterial (1205) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2014
Can sent to me by Prufrockstar - thanks! Amber pour with a soft white head. Really nice nose on this one. Dank grassy hops. Easy to drink, low alcohol but still packing a ton of hop character, nice body and a refreshing bitterness in the finish. Really nice. Green opener tab against a gold can is also a nice touch.

nealblind (530) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2014
Orange pour rapidly disappearing white head. Grass pine malt aroma. Tastes like water compared to the aroma. A great beer for hop-macho guys who are actually wusses. At least the malt doesnít overwhelm. Seek new flavors boys.

Strykzone (4480) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2014
Sampled at rpeal. A rich malty and west coast hops aroma. Tropical fruit. The flavor matches. Grapefruit also. Biting bitterness but well controlled. Nicely done.

Zeswaft (1343) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2014
Can. Indeed a fantastic session beer. Gold color with some little yeast chunks. Lots of citrus hops, orange and grapefruit, and a little pine. Finish has a little kick of malt to balance. Once it warms up the flavors really open up but i canít drink it slow enough. $7.99 six pack makes this an awesome contender. Reminds me of two beers ISA.

12 oz can. These guys recently entered the Seattle market, and Iíve been looking forward to trying their stuff. Pours clear gold with white head, okay retention, irregular lacing. Aroma has a brighter hop profile than a lot of IPAs. Grassy with a healthy dose of citrus and pine. Taste: Very lightly sweet, with biscuit and grass, followed by a pronounced bitter finish that lingers nicely. Light body, average carbonation, very quaffable. Overall: Really flavorful, impressive brew, especially for 4.5% ABV.

Can. I can drink this all day. A lot of pine and hops on the aroma. Citrus taste of grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Has a hoppy, slightly bitter finish. Very easy to drink. Very refreshing. Love this beer.

Can. Light golden orange pour with a half-inch of sudsy foam. Plenty of floral hops, pine, grapefruit and orange peel in the aroma. Taste blends grassy hops and cereal malt sweetness with some tangerine and tropical fruit in there as well. Best hop heavy APA Iíve had in quite some time.
