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 poured an amber in color with a thin coating of white head and a fair amount of sediment floating around. Aroma has resins, citrus, and some caramel. Mouth feel is on the light side and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has some resins, pine, dusty citrus, and some wet herbs.

Rich malty hoppy aroma that’s complex in nature. Solid bitterness supports the malt backbone, strong pale ale.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2013
A golden pale ale with notes of light caramel and citrus hops. Fairly basic recipe, but a tasty one. Fresh and hoppy, but not too bitter for the style. It’s a relatively light beer, but not too weak.

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Up there in my top favorite pale ales of all time. Incredibly well rounded with both malts and hops. The Threadless is still my favorite Finch’s brew but this one is a very close second. Finishes very clean with a mild hop presence. Color is dark orange and pours with a generous off white head like an american pale should look. I’m a fan.

Pretty nice on a the nose. Floral, citrus and resin dominate with grass, earthy undertones. This pale ale is versatile, because it doesn’t pack a crazy hop punch. Pretty good.
