COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finch’s Pale Ale is a refreshing experience from the pop of the top. Its fresh and hoppy taste with just enough supporting malt makes it easy to kick back more than just one. Our late kettle additions of American hop varieties and dry hopping techniques make this beer one of our favorites. The citrus hop character balanced with a malty backbone creates a delicious, accessible pale ale that is sure to satisfy with every sip. Enjoy this pale with just about any pairing of your choice.

Good beer from the can! Light hops that come through on the nose and in the finish. Solid beer I could drink almost any time.

This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was grassy and dusty, light citrus too. Flavor was astringent and a medium bitterness, very mild citrus and hop flavor. A bit offensive.

I quite enjoyed this. Nice and hoppy, and I thought it had a well rounded mouthfeel and wasn’t watery at all. Light, tangy, citrusy. I think this might make a really good summer beer.

Pours a light amber. Slightly hazy. This white head that left tons of lacing. Aroma is very musty. Taste is very musty with some bitterness in the finish.

I bought a single pint can of this as part of a M&M 6-pack from Binny’s in Downer’s Grove, IL for $9.99 in Early 2012. Pours a cloudy amber color with a bubbly off-white head. Scent is mostly of bitter hops but there are also hints of malts. It has a mild bitter taste that lasts long beyond the finish. There are also hints of citrus, bready tones, and crisp apple. Has a rather dry after taste. Better than I expected, but the texture could be a little less watery.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Can. Light amber body with an off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Floral aroma with notes of toasted grain and not much else. The flavor lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture turning slightly syrupy, moderate carbonation. Husky taste. Bitterness dominates with few hop flavors except for some slight resin and grapefruit. Way too much raw grain in the flavor.

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. The aroma is musty, earthy, floral, and resin. The taste is the same with light malt and pleasant bitterness. Not bad.

courtesy of hombrepalo. Malts in the aroma with hint of citrus. Also some aluminum from the can. Golden body with off white head, Good dry citrus flavor along with sugary malt and some dry resin. Good sipping brew and refreshment,

On tap. Golden orange pour with a creamy head. Nose is heavy citrus, orange and tangerine. Taste is quite bitter with a light sweetness underneath. Palate is medium bodied with a refreshing lengthy bitter finish. A really nice pale ale, lots of flavor and aroma, yet good for sessioning. Would do this again.

Tallboy from Pawola22 - thanks, Brian! Hazy pale orange pour with a lively head, not much retention to it. Sharp grassy hops in the nose and not a whole lot else. Prickly mouthfeel, a bit of a sharpness on the tongue despite the low ABV. Flavors are very pleasant, with a malt backbone to balance out and underscore the fresh, raw, grassy goodness. I dug it.
