COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship pale is a classic British pale ale with a nod to the legendary beers of Burton-on-Trent. Copper-colored, dry, clean and crisp with lots of late hope taste in an appetizing complex with ale fruitiness from imported Hampshire yeast.
Ingredients: Two row English malt (pale, crystal and chocolate); Cascade, Mt Hood, Tettnang and Fuggle Hops.

GBBF. Light haze on this amber beer, residual white head. Light dry palate with a sting from the fine carbonation. Toffee caramel malts. Slightly sour red fruits with some fresh hop sting. Finishes dry with red berry fruits coming to the fore and a trace of bubblegum ester.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2008
Golden-amber colour. Earthy, minerally nose with hints of diacetyl. Rather light body. More diacetyl than I’d like and not enough body. Some minerals but this is kind of lousy.

Bottle from BevMo (Sac-Natomas). Light amber peach color with a decent off-white head. Aromas of caramel malt and grassy/earthy hop. Medum body with mild carbonation. Flavor is caramel with rather fruity hop. Also grassy. Finish is a bit astringent. Decent ale.

Really didn’t do much for me. Not very pale, or fruity, or complex...did I miss something? Eh, I tried other Geary’s that were much better.
