MIGHTY ARROW Pale Ale provides lots of pleasurable sniffs from Amarillo and Cascade hops with a fetching honey malt base. This is our brewed tribute to Arrow, Kimís Aussie/Border Collie mix who ran (literally) New Belgium for 12 years. When she wasnít patrolling the brewery grounds, she was famous for her office visits: She never met a tummy rub she didnít like. Atta girl Arrow.

Bottle. Pours clear light orange with a medium foamy head that lingers nicely. Aromas of sweet bread, flowers, and light citrus. Taste is too sweet for an APA. Sugary honey, flowers, sweet bread, and almonds. Very dry finish.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottled as part of their 12 pack mix. Sunshade orange in color with a tremendously large and frothy linen white head. Mild-to-moderate citrus aroma (orange peel) with hints of peach and some nectarine and almonds coming out a bit later. Subdued bitter flavor with moderate malt sweetness, though the bitterness does grow a bit throughout the profile. Finish is rather dry with flavors of dried grasses, almonds and stale French bread. A rather light, airy and, dare I say, sessionable pale ale despite the 6% abv.

An okay beer. Very fresh aroma with a hint of floral. Would like a little more flavor to go along with the dryness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just a good but not great beer. Not up to the normal standard New Belgium has set. Blah.

From a bottle. Pours very clear light copper with a foamy frothy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes malty, nutty, lightly hopped. Dry aftertaste. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet malt.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $12.99 for a variety Folly 12-pack (w/ VONS card) Purchased: March 2, 2014 Consumed: March 2, 2014 Misc.: Best by June 15, 2014 Poured a caramel amber clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of frothy khaki-white head. Lots of bubbles coming up. A healthy dose of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Very good retention. Smelled citrus hops, apricot, peach, floral hops, caramel, honey wheat, lime, pine and some roasty malts. Tasted a bit darker than the smell. Got caramel, roasted nuts, floral hops, honey wheat, lighter citrus hops, light apricot and faint pine. Light body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, but refreshing finish. Just a very nice pale ale. Would definitely have it again.

Great pale ale. Nothing exceptional, but eagerly quaffable and on par with the high quality brews that New Belgium continues to produce.
