COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shelter Pale Ale is brewed with premium barley and whole-leaf Willamette & Columbus Hops. Our pale ale has a strong malt backbone and a slightly nutty flavor.

brewpub tap. hazy amber with a small-bubbled beige head that slowly wanes to a crescent moon. Nose confuses immediately with synthetic milky desert notes, a spiced coffee or cocoa. Dry cedar emerges with warmth. Flavor is off with light bile, toast at the front with marshmallow creamy sweetness through the sugary finish. Gritty texture. A shotgun profile that misses the target. DFH.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours pale amber with a fruity aroma. Overly juicy for a pale ale. Like a very fruity pilsner more than a pale ale. Not much bitterness here. Definitely made for people who don’t know what else to get/are afraid of the rest of the offerings.

Yes it is a Pale Ale. Pours a amber color with decent grassy, earthy hop nose. On the matly side with a little bitterness. Good.

A solid malty balanced pale ale. Nice and refreshing good aroma and classic look!

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Draft at the Rehoboth Beach Brewpub. Served in a standard pint glass, clear amber color with minimal white head. Aroma is grain, some hops and some grass. Taste is maltier then expected, a little sweetness. Easy drinking.

Has a stale like scent, some wheat and grains. Taste is a lot of wheat and not much else, rather bland taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butters (3963) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Sampled at the alehouse in chantilly. Clear light amber pour with faint ring of khaki head. Maltier than I expected. But with a restrained hoppy fruitiness. Solid, but nothing crazy.

It lacks the pale ale hoppy aroma and bitterness I've come to expect from a pale ale. I would call this more of an American pale ale. The plus is the head retention and overall drinkability. It is not a bad beer by any means, but it could be so much more.

deyholla (8126) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap at the Gaithersburg location. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of grain and bread with just a hint a of backing grassiness. Flavor has a good amount of grain and grassiness with not much else. Bland.

Pours a golden honey with a two finger head that sticks around, great lacing throughout. Aroma of hops upfront with malts in the back, taste follows the nose, low hop profile compared to newer pale ales. Smooth and easy to drink. This beer doesn’t have the best ratings on here but I like it, it’s a great summer lawnmower beer and great beer to introduce others to craft.
