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 from DeLaurenti, Seattle
Hazy golden color. It has a lean and nice malt profile, with a toffee accent; the hopping is pleasant and moderately citrusy. Dry.
Good example of the style, highly drinkable.

12oz can, received as an extra in trade, thanks Ben. Pours a clear, light amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, orange, grapefruit, some pine. Medium on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bread, cereal, pine hops, some grapefruit, with a crisp, bitter finish. Very nice.

12oz can Aroma: grapefruit citrus and piney resinous hop up front with faint fruity ale esters in the background. Appearance: slightly hazy light gold with lots of pinpoint bubbles rising to a creamy white head that disipates slowly to a thin layer and lacing Flavor: very much like the aroma, no surprises. Starts with a grapefruit zest and pith hop bite that is well supported by a rich unkilned maltiness. Some sweetness perceived but its quickly wiped away by carbonation and firm hop bitterness. Aftertaste is quite pleasant and similar to the first tast. Mouthfeel: medium bodied and silky like it might have some oats in it. Carbonation is toward the high end but its not gassy or acidic. Finishes crisp and clean without any slickness or stickiness. Overall: a very drinkable old school PNW APA. No fancy tricks like "new improved tropical hops". Just a very well made standard old fashioned good pale.

Can: † Very soft Pale Ale. &nbps A little touch of graininess to it. † Otherwise soft citrus peel and pith. † Not terribly bitter, which is fine. † Doesnít linger long. † Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. † Finishes with no a lot of hop bitterness, but what I consider citrus bitterness. † Seems clean, not as grainy as when it first started. † Fairly good example.
