COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a golden colored body with a creamy white head. Its slightly sweet malt flavor makes up the base and offers a supporting role to the refreshing hop profile. Cascade hops provide a floral, citrus and almost fruity character to this well balanced easy drinking ale. Back by popular demand, “Paleooza” is an old favorite and an early original in our portfolio of great beers! 14°

It’s got a but of lager "skunk" to the aroma and that sneaks into the taste a good bit as well (see the likely reason below). Overall, it doesn’t suck, but it’s not exactly good (again, below). I can tell this has some nice hop and malt character and it’s actually well-balanced for what it is. That skunk, thankfully, isn’t highly-prominent, so I can enjoy it at least. This is a beer that I likely wouldn’t try as I’m not the biggest New Holland fan, but Mainstreet Liquors in Countryside, IL had it on sale for $4 for a 4 pack, so I decided "well, it may not be super-fresh, but let’s give it a try anyway for that price!" I picked the one that was furthest from the blazing sun at the front of the store....really great place to put beer, but that’s why it’s on clearance, right? Overall, worth the $1 a bottle experiment.

Great tasting, but lighter pale ale. 4.4% ABV makes for a great session ale on a summer day.

Taster at The Mondial de la biere in Motréal. The color is a hazy amber with a thin beige head. The aroma is of citrus fruits mostly oranges plus hops. The taste is as above plus some herbs and spicies with malt. It has a bit of a bitter finish.

Beer was dated using the mysterious secret decoder ring code. I knew it was old since it was marked down, but I took a shot anyway. Looked up the code: bottled March 24, 2015, so a year old. Keep this in mind in reading the review. Massive foam eruption on opening 4 of the 6 beers in the 6 pack, making a mess the first time in that it overlowed my Imperial pint glass. Aroma a mixture of fruit, vegetable, and bread, no hops. Super large thick, creamy, white head that recedes slowly. Hazy golden amber with heavy carbonation. Some small floaties visible. Good mouth feel for the pale ale style; excellent and thicker than expected for a low ABV pale. With lots of malt presence, the initial taste is fruit/vegetable with bread (like the aroma) sustaining through the middle, with a slight bittering asserting in the finish. Finishes dry and clean. The fruit/vege taste is front and center in this beer. It is not a citrus taste, but more of a melon taste combnied with green vegetables. Not unpleasant, but not standard for a pale ale. On the positive, this beer has substantial malt presence even though it is low ABV and billed as a session ale. Fresh, this probably would have been much better.
