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.

4 pints on tap. Mostly clear golden with a small disc of foam. Aroma is flowery pine, citrus and light caramel. Taste is the same mix. Light medium body has a dry finish and has medium high carbonation. Nice session ale.

Nephilium (1312) - Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Mild aroma of caramel malts and citrus. Pours a hazy dark amber with almost no head. Nice bitter hop presentation, which quickly fades to the malts, just leaving a little lingering bitterness in the finish. It is an easy drinking beer, just nothing extraordinary.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a hazy orange color with a small white head. The aroma was musty, earthy, floral and resiny. The taste was the same with light malt and pleasant bitterness. Very good.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Can thank to Brigadier! Dirty dark tan/orange pour, 1/4 inch lasting frothy carbonation and an aroma of very herbal hops. Flavor is bitter orange rind, more herbal hops, dry on the finish and very malty all the way through. Not bad.

Had a generous 6 oz. sample of this poured during the Finch’s brewery tour (on tap). A: Pours a cloudy light copper with an off-white 1.5 finger head that leaves a nice webbed lacing down the sample glass. S: Upfront fruitiness from the hops with a nice malty backbone. T: Taste is similar to the nose. Nice hops with a caramel malt backbone. A little fruit is mixed in as well, but it’s very very light. M: Clean, crisp and refreshing with a medium carbonation. As with some of the other Finch brews the taste is nice upfront, but blands out on the palate after each sip. O: Another refreshing brew from Finch’s. I’m really excited for them to be start expanding their line-up in the next year. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 07-24-2011

Clear amber with a three finger medium tan head. Aroma of heavy grains, dough, vegetal notes, caramel and citrus. Taste of caramel, citrus, sweet malt, sugar, orage with a peppery finish that low on bitterness.

I’ve tried this several times and this four pack of cans seems to be "off" in flavor. Usually this is a some what malty APA with a solid hop bitterness enhanced with the addition of orange zest. All of the times that I’ve had this, save this one, it has been a very sessionable brew that is easy to drink. Today I’m finding very tart green apple in the mix. Cutthroat has been one of our favorite beach brews.
