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".

Clear in appearance. Golden in color with a frothy white head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass. Citrusy aroma. There is a hint of peach in the aroma. Smells of fresh hops. Orange in the taste. Very mild hop flavor. Thin texture with medium carbonation. Starts off citrusy and finishes abruptly. Bale breaker is never a let down. Enjoyed this beverage.

Can at the 7th Tasting in Belgrade-Serbia, a very rare and fresh gift from luttonm to whom goes our perpetual gratitude. Pours pale golden semi-filtered appearance, white medium head. Nose: fresh grassy feel, some floral notes, mild aroma. Mouth: extremely easy drinking, fantastic and balanced bitterness, grassy essence but mild. A gem!

Theydon_Bois (11550) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Can at Endoís, thanks to Mini and Bird, 11/11/14. Very lightly hazed golden with a decent white covering that retains well. Nose is pine, pissy tinge, sticky hops, citric rind, skunked essence, orange pith, straw. Taste comprises skunky hop, pine, orange pith, dank notes, tangerine, mandarin. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a skunky hop wash. Solid dank hop bastard - could fill my fridge with this bugger.

38 IBU. 05.01.14 label date. Poured from a can into a tumbler on 06.27.14. A: Grapefruit. I could smell it when opening the can. It has a malt base. A: 1/2 finger head. See through yellow body. Nice lacing. T: Flower and tangerine dominate. Pine, and malt as a base are subtle. P: Crisp and bubbly enough. O: This has a nice balance and is very sessionable at 4.5%. There is a nice lingering bitterness that mixes in with sweetness. Itís surprising how hoppy this is for 38 IBU. I feel that there are better session pales out there though and would not go out of the way to find this one.
