3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy golden coloured body with a ridiculously large, soapy, seven centimetre tall white head. Aroma of yeast, soap, unfinished sugars, light malt, grass and hay - interesting with some hops noticeable as well. Light to Medium-bodied; Very strong yeast note of belgian qualities with some pungent grassy and herbal flavours and a very perfumey hop character coupled with some sustained malt. Aftertaste is nice and fresh with a lot of grassy character and a good amount of belgian inspired yeast with a pungent, but low alpha acid hop note. Overall, a rather good and refreshing american pale with a herbal and grassy note that lasts indefinitely and some light malt flavours which balance out the subtle hops nicely. Well worth trying if you like this style since some of the belgian-tasting yeast brings out some complexity not usually found in this style. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Cary, North Carolina on 02-August-2014 for US$1,79 sampled at home in Washington on 15-September-2014.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Second Wind Pale Ale is a Light Amber hazy beer with a firm head of tiny white bubbles. The scent of this beer is crisp with a moderate amount of indeterminate hops. Taste is very faint. A bit salty, mild hops of a green and maybe a bit green, mown hay variety. Body is smooth and silky. not very lively. Finish is faint. rather unassertive, beer that doesn’t distinguish itself.

Can into pint glass, cloudy gold color with some white head. Aroma of malt sweetness and floral/citrus hops. Taste starts off with light citrus hops, fades quickly into light malt sweetness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with a surprising clean dry finish. A lighter take on the style, just a refreshing pale ale.
