COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

It worked New Belgium! I bought a mixed twelve pack pretty much just to get this beer. The Wit, Fat Tire, and 1554 worked out just fine for watching my Jayhawks advance into the final 4 and into to the championship game. I think I even had a couple left over to start the game that earned KU itís first championship in 20 years. On to the beer...Served fairly cold into a shaker glass. Floral and earthy aroma along with a touch of citrus and a mild, but present, malt backing. Light copper color with a two fingered head. Taste is earthy, spicy, and floral hops, with a sharp bite to them, and a biscuty, malty backing. Seems to me like a highly hopped English pale ale, I actually donít mind the hop selection and I enjoy the malt base, which is malty, but not sweet. This is a nicely balanced beer and one that I find easy to drink.

Gregis (1279) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours a crystal clear amber with a loose, fluffy, off-white head that leaves a sticky web of lace all the way down the glass. Light, sweet malt with a solid balance of citric and earthy hop notes. Light to medium-bodied and slick with a dry and mildly bitter finish. The flavor is like a blend of an APA and a British pale ale: mildly sweet and clean malt (crystal?) with a nice citric and earthy hop backing. Well made and quite quaffable, this is a solid session beer. It will be interesting to see if they decide to release this in sixers vs. having to buy the NG Folly Pack. If they do, Iíd buy it again.

Pleasently suprised by this. A very nice, mmild and restrained Pale that was light on the hops, like I would normally like. Nice.

tap at the brewery - Pours clear orange with a thin head. The caramel malt and citrus hop aroma is very good and leads nicely into the well balanced flavor. It has a slightly dry finish, is medium bodied and is certainly easy to drink. it wonít blow you away, but itís an enjoyable quaff.

I tried this beer in a New Belgium sample 12 pack and i have to say that i was impressed. the immediate taste is very hoppy and spicy. Dark golden color with a small light whitish head.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Gorgeous aroma - lots of cascade and some pale maltiness too. Appearance-wise itís very attractive. Light copper with a bountiful white head. I enjoy the taste quite a bit - more spiciness than i anticipated (not a bad thing at all). Body is lighter than expected too - making for a pretty easy drinking pale. Very pleasant all around and Iím really really excited that NB is making this! (fwiw, Iíve met arrow a few years ago, such a sweet dog).

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Clear, dull orange appearance. Lively aroma of mandarin oranges, grapefruit, crystal malt; tropical and bready with only a soft sweetened tea character. Pale, biscuity, and fruity flavor; quiet pineapple, banana, and guava sweetness. A bit needly and herbal in a general way, cutting the bright fruitiness with the right touch of earthy bitterness. Palate crisp, medium, soft, and slightly watery; lots of doughy honey malt in a giving and pleasant finish. Not a unique offering by any means, but very drinkable and pretty spot on for this style.

2008 Bottle - I was under the impression that NB was pushing the craft brew envelope, am I wrong? This was a forgettable pale that would have gone down the drain had I not been at my folks house and needed a bit of medication...this should be classified as Pale Light...
