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.

Iphonephan (6046) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
On draft at the Gaithersburg brew house. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Mildly spicy nose. Very thin mouthfeel. Not one of DFHs most memorable brews.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap at the Falls Church ale house. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Slick palate, fairly sweet. Not bad.

It pours a nice copper with a thick white head that leaves moderate lacing. The aroma is rather bland with nothing at all really standing out. The taste is clean but fairly watery. Very un-DFH like. Dull & uninteresting. Bleh.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2012
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 (1508) - 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 (4039) - 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.
