COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogwood Pale Ale is an English-style pale ale, well attenuated with fruity, estery overtones. A blending of three hop varieties in three separate additions provides a clean bitterness. Whole leaf Cascade hops are added directly into the fermentation tank called "dry-hopping" in order to achieve a floral aroma. It is naturally carbonated for a smooth finish.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2003 Gusher, I hate when that happens. Once the head settles, it pours a cloudy copper color with an off-white head. The aroma is hoppy and strongly sour and fruity. Ugh...I got a bad bottle...the carbonation is way too high and the flavor is very sour and astringent. This one is undrinkable, but it was clearly a bad bottle. I'll rerate if i get it on tap or try a better bottle.

Your typical pale ale. I like this beer though another great addition from Dogwood.

The appearance isn’t much -- the head is sluggish and fast-fading. Body is just what you’d expect from a Pale Ale. the aroma is slightly citrusy hops. The flavor is nice, however. Toasty malt, caramel and a bit of chocolate that does more to mellow the character than to be a prominent aspect of the flavor. Surprisingly crips. Hops are subdued (despite being the biggest part of the aroma). There’s a slight tea-like aspect to the flavor. Great drinkability, good session beer.

On tap at the Bistro, T gates, Atlanta’s Hartsfield airport. My first beer on this Georgia (ahem) business trip. Really nice and sweet, very little hop character, a truly fine example of an EPA. Very fresh, lively.

You notice the dry hopping but not over done. I would disagree with the "english styling" in that it seems to me be more in the American tradition.

Blah...that’s fow I feel about this beer. Average American ale, nothing to say about it really...

After I got over the ridiculous amount of foam - a Dogwood trade I guess - this proved to be a sweet tasting pale ale with just enough hoppiness to keep it honest. The appearance is nice and cloudy and no bitter aftertaste. Detect a slight citrus aroma.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2004 Re-Rate 5/1/04 - Tried this beer again and liked it even more so I'm increasing my scores. A great beer for relaxing after a long, hot summer day. Cloudy, orange color with light carbonation. Floral hop aroma and bitterness with a balanced flavor.

A decent effort with a floral nose, light malt backbone and fruity notes with a touch of citrus from the hops.

Re-Rate 06/10/02: This ’puppy’ has been a ’Fermentin’, as it just did the ’Fizzy’ pour, and the additional ’Yeasty’ tones in the nose gives it away. Cloudy orange in color, beige head, decent lace. Nose is malt, sweet, and a tad ’earthy’ from the yeast, citrus also noted. Front sweet, top light, the finish is dry, acidic, nicely hopped.
