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.

Lukaduke (2000) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy medium copper orange color with a finger or two of off-white foam. Aromas are toasted malts, touches of citrus and sweet caramel. On the palate there is some decent mouthfeel, good carbonation and a malty slighty muddy backbone highlighted by notes of citrus and bitter grapefruit.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Very chunky, murky amber colored pour. Big choppy off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Hoppy aroma. A nuttiness. Flavor is that same nuttiness. Bitter. Tiny bit of citrus.

Surprisingly wheat-like. Good bit of citrus. Not an exceptional pale ale but not bad, and great for a hot day.

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Meh...below average APA. Aroma was weak. Could pick up sweet caramel but had to search for it. Pour was a nice enough hazy dark gold with a one finger white head that left in minutes. Taste was very malt forward. Sweet doughy bread with caramel malt. Sweet orange notes in the finish. Totally out of place. No hops in the flavor. Medium carbonation.

SamP01 (539) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2014
16oz can, Pours a medium amber with a medium slowly fading white head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus and pine hops, pale malt. Taste the same as aroma with malt and bready notes, mild hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finish is pale malt, citrus with pine and citrus hops bitterness for balance. Overall a good drinking pale ale.

keanex (1379) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2014
Can.
Appearance: Slightly hazy orange body with very little head.
Aroma: Weak aroma with orange peel and key lime, but it’s very weak.
Taste: Crisp and bright with a hint of bitterness towards the end, which is overpowered by an earthy doughy finish.
Palate: Crisp body, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This does nothing for me. I don’t care to drink it and I don’t get enjoyment from it. I’d drink it for free, but it wouldn’t be my first choice.

DrunkSanta410 (216) - Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Can from Maltitude in Columbus, GA. Poured into a pint glass. Pours an amber color, clear, with solid white head that dissipates into a medium thick film. Aroma is light citrus hops and strong orange peel and spicy / toast malt notes as well. Taste is citrusy orange hops with toasty, caramel malts. Not overly sweet. Interesting mix of hops / malts here, but something seems off in the balance. Cant pinpoint what it is. Palate is medium carbonation, thin texture, slightly bitter finish. Wouldn’t drink again.

Smooth pale ale, has hop flavor but not too hoppy. Spices provide a unique flavoring.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Fr0m a can, b0ught at a nearby supermarket: It p0urs a hazy light amber b0dy with a sudsy, r0cky beige head and l0ts 0f lace. It smells 0f sweet 0ranges, tangerine, a hint 0f t0ffee, and s0me s0apy yeast. It tastes 0f citrus rind, s0me 0ranges, and a generic pale malt flav0r, finishing with a dry citrus rind bitterness. Refreshing.

Draft->mini lager at RFD. Murky orange-amber with small white head. Buddy at the bar remarked that it looks like unicorn ejaculate. I will try to not let that negatively influence my review, but damn. Citrus and floral hops, grass, resin, toasted malt. Bit of a mess, really.
