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.

Can. This pours a copper color with a thin off-white head. The aroma is uneventful; toasted grain, caramel, and a dash of citrus. Pretty tasty, though. There’s a sturdy toasted malt backbone underneath citrus peel and a touch of resin. It finishes fairly dry with mild to moderate bitterness. This probably won’t win any awards but it’s easy drinking and pretty solid.

RABinCO (1140) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Can into nonic pint. Pours hazy gold. No real head, moderate lacing. Light citrus aroma but not much else. Taste is pine and orange ring. Slightly sweet malty backbone, nice bitterness, but the orange rind is really overwhelming in this one. Definitely stands out from the crowd, but not necessarily in a good way.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy light amber color with very little head on it. Nose has a little bit of orange citrus in with just a subtle hint of hoppiness on the back end. Taste is fairly bitter and has a definite bite to it, but the hops don’t taste super fresh. Not bad.

Beer tasting solid pale ale, worth a try. Some nice spice, crisp finish. Wanted a better balance of hops.

Not much to this one. I guess they package it in a can so I can drink it outdoors? I was not impressed. Aroma is light, slight green hop, a bit metallic. Taste and palate were thin and one dimensional. It wasn’t like this is a delicate beer with light complex flavors. Its just bland pale ale.
