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.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Tasted 8/22/11. 16oz Can. Pours mildly hazy with an amber hue. Layer of white head. Caramel and cooked sugar malts and earthy piney hops. Subtle duality between the citrus aspect and the fudgy malts. Medium bodied and rather dry. The malts hold sway, but not by too much. Bready malt flavors and a raw rye flavor. The hops are mellow, grassy and fresh. Decent effervescence that accentuates the hops, but also adds a dimension to the malt backbone. Decent at best.

EithCubes (5306) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pint can. Nose strong in dough and pine, citric and somewhat dank, lightly herbal. Slightly hazy orange pour with a tight, rocky beige head. Medium body soft and faintly tart with medium-strong bitterness, copious resinous material and light leafy greens, somewhat soapy, but the citrus is dulled and not explosive, the caramel and pine as well. Thin, simplistic malt with too much alcohol showing, seems to be clean but all of the potentially interesting edges have been crudely shorn away.

rondphoto (3169) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 21, 2014
can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark amber with a frothy white head, swaths of lace. Taste is malt imbued with vanilla and earthy hay that grows neatly in the palate before adding bittering in a long finish. Quite rich and appealing, a solid Pale Ale.

tnkw01 (1538) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Can. Golden color with a medium head. Nice beer, none of the terrible bitter aftertaste of some IPAs. Aroma is hay, grains, a touch of grapefruit. Taste is A malty grain with the right amount of grapefruit tasting hops. Nice.

hotstuff (4532) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Rated on 7-27-2012 (Can) This beer pours a medium sized off-white head with a long retention, golden transparent body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, caramel malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is right on for the style, easy to drink, worth trying, and is an APA that I would drink again.

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.
