Named for the majestic creatures which embody the proud spirit of the Republic of Cascadia, Wild Salmon Pale Ale is a light bodied and beautifully balanced Northwest-style pale ale. Its gentle sweetness, drawn from Pale, Carastan, Vienna, Cara-pils, and Honey malts is nicely matched by Chinook hops and late additions of Cascade and Willamette hops. Northwest Pale Ale enthusiasts will love this beer as much as they love the beautiful region which has inspired it. In firm commitment to our love of the Great Northwest, the people at Fish Tale Ales are donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of each case and each keg of Wild Salmon Pale Ale to the Save Our Wild Salmon Coalition, helping to rebuild healthy runs of wild Pacific salmon and steelhead. On draught or by the bottle, this treat from Fish Tale Ales is remarkably bright with a brilliant golden color and thick creamy head. Wild Salmon Pale Ale is sparkling and crisp with a fresh hop aroma and refreshing finish.

bhensonb (10805) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Balanced aroma of malt and hop. Sort of a copper color with a white head that quickly turned to film. Medium bodied. Bit of a carbonatiion bite. Starts with malt, there’s balancing bitter, and it finishes that way. Decent, but no special notes or flavors, except possibly a slight fruit towards the end. There seems to be a bit of citrus/sour left in the mouth.

Lubiere (9789) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2006
Hazy amber golden ale with a nice thick creamy off white head. A funky hops aroma, with notes of peppers and chinese 5 spices. Nice and herbal. In mouth, a crisp malt gives way to very german styled hops, very short in mouth, and rather thin. Quaffabe. Bottle from from MLCB, via Piscator. Merci Kris.
