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.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is plenty hoppy with maybe some mint in there? Flavor is also pretty decent. Lots of hop kick with some dry malts bringing things up. A decent low alcohol but high flavor pale ale.

bytemesis (4599) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Can. Pours clear orange amber with lots of small floaties. Small off white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is orange zest, caramel, pine. Flavor is about the same, light sweet and medium bitter. Orange notes more muted in flavor, but rind bitterness comes through in far finish. Medium bodied and creamy in the mouth. Quite interesting actually; a little to much lingering bitter.
