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.

Bottle acquired in trade with SpringsLicker (thanks!). Poured a medium to deeper and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of flowers and citrus. Tastes of oranges, citrus and very light caramel. Thinner body.

CaptainCougar (7128) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Pours a lightly hazy golden with plenty of carbonation and a big puffy white head. Fresh hoppy and fruity aroma. Mildly sweet and hoppy, but nothing spectacular. Dry grainy notes as well. Smooth and drinkable, but dull.

Ughsmash (7007) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Thanks to SpringsLicker for the retired bottle! Poured hazy, deeper peach with a short, but well-retained cap of off-white head.. left some sticky lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up drier toffee and floral sweetness, definitely losing most of its hoppage over the years.. still enjoyable, having aged somewhat like Fuller Vintage Ales (malt-forward). The flavor had sweet, aged caramel and toffee, still with a bit of leafy and pine bitterness.. sweet malty finish. Roughly medium-bodied and a bit tacky at the back-end.. held up decently.

Bottle. Sweet ginger-peach aroma. Dark amber color with small head. Sweet ginger-peach flavor with mild hops finish. Nice, smooth and enjoyable - on the fruity side.

BBB63 (5751) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Thanks Mabdoney. Slightly hazy golden hue with fizzy white head and some lace. Very floral aroma of aromatic and dry hops, toasted malt, biscuit, light citrus and yeast. Lively and clean mouthfeel leds to a nice bitter and malty balance, not overdone. Undertone of lemon and orange with a dash of yeast twang. A refreshing session ale, nothing great but easy to drink.

Misty copper, sticky head, large bubbles. Nose of biscuity malts & hops. Sweetness & some floral spices. Taste has a nice full body & lots of malts. Finishes smooth & balanced. Good!
