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, Kim’s Aussie/Border Collie mix who ran (literally) New Belgium for 12 years. When she wasn’t patrolling the brewery grounds, she was famous for her office visits: She never met a tummy rub she didn’t like. Atta girl Arrow.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Pours a clear, deep gold color with a thin white head. Aroma of floral, herbal hops, honey, citrus peel, and mild spices. Flavor of floral and herbal hops, pale malts, honey, spices, citrus peel, and corn flakes. Light-bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a spicy, sweet, and fizzy mouthfeel. Good APA, and interesting.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Pale golden, very vibrant and translucent, lively carbonation, moderate to large white frothy head, sticky lacing.   Certainly looks good.   Soft hop nose, a little powdered sugar, faint orange peel.   Combination semi-sweet rind along with some horse pasture like flavors.   A little earthy otherwise.   Kinda tastes organic, if you know what I mean.   Moderate malt base, hop presense fades quickly.   Pale rind sweetness lingers.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Kind of has a stale quality to it, almost like wet hops or something.   Tiz okay, but not very bright or vibrant.   Does seem a bit organic.   Not that its bad, but just had those earthy/funky flavors.   At least its a new label...

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Draught. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin / floor cleaner), with a light note of soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Eccchhhh...I might use this to clean my kitchen tiles, judging from the aroma, but that’s about it. Unpleasant.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma is mildy hoppy with a hint of malt. The flavor is lacking in the hop department, but there is a nice malty and grainy aftertaste that linger. Not bad, but nothing special.

BVery (5924) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2009
BOTTLE: copper pour, aroma is grain, faint hops, and yeast. A little sweet/honey on taste. Decent beer, but not spectacular.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Poured a copper color with a thin head that did not last. Aroma of lightly floral hops, actually somewhat herbal with light honey. Flavor was much of the same, pleasant subtle herbal hops followed by light honey and a caramel malts. Finishes clean. Might have been a tad thin.
