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 courtesy of Prufrockstar, thanks! Hazy golden color, fluffy white head, delicate lacing. Wow, aroma is like a fresh meadow breeze, flowers, haystacks. Taste has earthy lemon, light scallions, freshly cut hay. Delicious.

jbruner (3545) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Can in trade with Mr 5000, thanks Andre! Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with fluffy white head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aroma of big resinous new world type hops, tropical fruits, stone fruit, and berry notes. Taste is less hoppy, but still huge. Mild bitterness, soft carbonation, clean and easy, very nice.

BillKismet (3659) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Bronzed body with just a touch of haze and a decent head. For a 4.5% ABV brew, this one has a surprisingly vivacious floral hop character with splendid doses of pine and perhaps just a an earthy touch and some grass. Delightfully quaffable body. Medium to light bodied mouthfeel with a splendid waterfall of floral hopping. Deliciously clean pinyness. Exceptional balance and unsurpassed freshness. I had this one on tap, but just grabbed some cans so will have to see if the canned version holds up. In the running for the most sessionable APA on the market.

12oz can poured into keg shaped glass. Slightly hazy dark golden color, light honey color. Dated August 12 and consumed August 29, pretty damn fresh. Big head fades into surface covering lacing and lots of soapy bubbles on the side of the glass. Aroma has moderate hop bitterness and hoppy herbal, cedar, and light lemon with some fresh peeled grapefruit skin. A very nice hoppy aroma but the beer really shines in the flavor. Despite bitter smell the flavor is remarkably smooth and low on bitterness. The hops turn into hop juice with a light grapefruit and light malt biscuit. The hops are very lean with light bitterness at the end of the aftertaste. I have had this before and itís super enjoyable every time, the best hop centric beer in Washington. At the abv itís amazing in so many ways.

On tap @ Seattle Tap Room. Hazed orange colored beer with white foam. Pretty nice combination of bready malts and some orange rind. Big time citrus sweetness to this one. Thereís a lot of grassy hop character, too, particularly to the flavor. Slight lemon tang and a fairly strong bitterness. Nice bready malt flavor and sweetness though. Kind of a more old school pale ale, but not caramel water so it works just fine for me.
