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: very mild, forgettable beer. Too much like a lager for me, but not bad if youíre looking for a lighter beer with a little more flavor.

On tap at Seattle Taproom. Pours a clear gold with a white head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has a great citrus note with a light bitterness and grains supporting. Flavor is full of citrus with a slight grapefruit bite and some light grains underlying.

12 oz. can shared by Prufrockstar - thanks again, Chris! Pours a clear, bright, light gold with a small white head that settles into a thick ring and wispy film. Clean throughout - straw, lemon, grass, pale malts, florals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Nice. I donít have any previous experience with this brewery, but based on this APA, Iíd like some more.

This is a hidden gem of absolute loveliness. By far the best BB has put out, what an absolute find. Explosion of happiness.

Clear light yellow with white head. Aroma is beautiful citra? Taste is dry and drinkable, but doesn't have a ton of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can pours out hazy copper topped with a sand head. nose is great lots of fresh hops a nice mix of pine and citrus a light malty sweetness. Taste is more of the well balanced hop with a nice malt backbone. Very enjoyable I sure hope they make distro to boise.
