4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
New Belgium Dig Pale Ale has a thick, creamy, white head and a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, with nice lacing left behind. The aroma is of citrus, hop oil, sugar, and white bread. Taste is of those, with some pleasant and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is watery and slick, and New Belgium Dig finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable. Overall, this one is very nice, and I score it as being excellent. RJT

Some fruit and citrus in the aroma with a very nice malt base. The flavor has the malt but is taken over by the hops. Very refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to snifter. Pours a dark gold--almost like brandy or iced tea. About a finger of white, mostly dissipating head. Light to moderate lacing. Nose is slightly skunky with a touch of yeast. Nice mouthfeel. Light zesty fruit, nice hop profile and just a bit of the usual NB earthiness toward the lingering finish. Very good pale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Mxs Fells point Balt. This was a nice full bodied, heavier pale ale. A bit too malty bready and heavy for my taste, but nice flavor.
