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.

Aurelius (4230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Silver tallboy can. Very cloudy, apricot bronze. Lots of malt, caramel and fruit in the aroma. Very drinkable, and not all that hop-assertive. Mouthy, with a long jammy aftertaste. Every now and again there was the resinous pine note, but this brew is more about malt. Thanks to PorterPounder - split one with him over at his place.

PorterPounder (5592) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Chattanooga, Tn. - Riverside Wine & Spirits - 16 oz can. Dark auburn pour, medium thick off-white head, nice thick lacing. Aroma has nice piney resiny notes, some floral notes. Flavor has a heavy bittersweet citrusy presence, some caramel sweetness to balance it out, some spearmint notes on the back end. Thickish mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

jgb9348 (4771) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Slightly cloudy bronze and light copper coloured body with a bit of an orange glow and a nice, thick, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, peaches, light hops, grapefruit, pine and a bit of toffee. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hoppy notes up front with a thick body and a great balance of malt. Aftertaste shows some good hop characteristics with pleasant assertive alcohol and floral notes and a bit of a kick of pine and grapefruit with plentiful sugars. Overall,a very nice APA with the depth and body of a much higher abv beer than this one - great all the way around, especially from a can. I sampled this 16ounce pint sized can purchased earlier today from Merchant;s in Dearborn, Michigan for US$2.69 sampled today, 02-August-2013 in Grosse Ile, Michigan.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Total Wine, Fairfax 4-pak: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops. Light malt backbone. Not really all that bitter or hoppy in the taste. Not a remarkable example of the style, but drinkable.

Orange pour with clinging white head and lace. Aroma is flat light malt, and some orange zest. Flavor is semi sweet malt, some citrus bitter, and some flat like funk. Not really bad but something. Medium bodied with some foamy carbonation. ok beer 12 oz can

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Serving: 16 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy dark orange with a small off white head. The nose has bright notes of citrus and pineapple, brown sugar, and brown bread. The flavor has even balance between the malt and hops. The hops are much more subdued on the tongue than in the nose. There is some earthy bitterness with a touch of citrus. More nuttiness and almost chocolate notes peek through. Light to medium body with a medium finish. Solid flagship brew.

jjgmd (1463) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Pours a golden orange cooper hazy color with a small head. Nose is hoppy with a touch of caramel and malt. Taste is more caramel and malt with mild citrus. Nothing very complex, an average APA, missing the up front citrus. Finish is mildly bitter without any real lingering . Quaff Score 6 / 10

Pours a dark golden copper with a beige head and aroma of aroma of hops and caramel. Taste is of caramel and malt with hop and citrus coming through in the bitter finish. Drinkable, solid APA but not much more
