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.

nice pour from a bottle with aromas of floral hops and sweet malt coming from the glass. a solid hop flavor hits your mouth and is there to stay. slightly sweet malt finish. a good tasting pale ale!

Tasted from bottle into nucleated pint glass. Pours a bright amber color with creamy off-white head, little lacing. Strong aromas of bread, aggressive American hops and ale yeast esters. Taste is true-to-style for an American Pale Ale but more malt complexity than typical: Iím picking up plain pale, some caramel, maybe some biscuit or aromatic and even a little roasted barley or other unmalted grain. Iím not sure what "honey malt" is, but the resulting beer tastes great.

A soils APA. Nicely balanced easy drinking. I am hoping that New Belgium makes this their next canned offering.

A: The beer pours a clear amber color with two fingers of solid off-white head. S: Smells of citrus hops and a bit of stale bread. Plenty of floral hop notes, which are probably the best part of the aroma. A light toast note and just a little bit of bread. Not much else... T: The flavor is a bit grassy with a moderate bitterness. A little bit of citrus peel flavor along with some floral hops. Bready malt with some toast and pale, cracker malts. M: Medium bodied with a moderate to high carbonation. O: Just an okay example of a pale. Donít think I would make this one a repeat beer.

Light amber with slight off white head, holds a lace. Sweet and slightly floral nose. Excellent feel in the mouth from start to finish. Grass and floral predominate in the hops, with little residual malt flavour. Overall a very enjoyable american pale ale.

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2011
Not much to look at; pours a light amber with shy, sparse carbonation and bright as bright. Sloppy white pad dons it, holds well but leaves mere hairlines of lace. Piney, slightly acidic, lemon and lime zest on the nose with undertones of burnt toast and doughy malt, honey and herbal tea - unexpected. Quite nutty in the mouth, again a pronounced burnt toast flavour comes through levelled by notes of fresh baked, grainy wholemeal loaf and a solid dose of peppery and raw fresh hops. A little fruit such as lychee, lime and pear develops in the tail. Drops off all hops, medially bitter and very clean and short. The tea plays in, as does the sweetness of honey as it warms. This is interesting stuff, I like it. Comes across more English than American. Fits the session ale bill for me nicely, and I like the story of the Aussie border collie.

The only thing good about this beer is the story behind the history of this beer. Itís a cute story of Might Arrow who used to roam the brewery and blah blah blah but other than that, this brew is nothing to brag about.

Beautiful pour into Estrella Damm tall pint glass. 2" off-white head, dark gold beer. Soft, sweet aroma with the lightest touches of banana and pine. Flavor is full, mouthfeel balanced, finish light. Hops are in check. Nothing earth-shattering, but pretty nice.
