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.

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 (3863) - 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 (7024) - 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.

sonnycheeba (3789) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Tap. Pours slightly hazy gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is very muted; straw and cereal malt, citrus fruit, and grassy hops. Flavor is malt forward with supporting fruit esters and hops (light bitterness); bland finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

60minuteman (867) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Bottle. Solid smell of roast hops and some spice. Roast, pine, and spice flavor. Slightly sweet and bitter at the same time. Taste fades rather abruptly but gets more consistent as you drink it.
