COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lilja’s Pulling Boat Pale Ale is hand-crafted using a variety of choice American two-row malted barley and Cascade hops grown in the Yakima Valley of Washington State. Under strictly controlled conditions, the boiling wort is force-cooled and fermented using a selected and pure strain of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, a top-fermenting brewing yeast. After several days of fermentation at 66-68 degrees Fahrenheit, the wort is now ale. Before bottling, the ale is filtered and cold-conditioned to insure quality and freshness.

Pours a rather unattractive dirty orange with very little head. Sits like dirty water in the glass. Some caramel, hop and dirt in the aroma. Not bad in the flavor, with some citrus, some hay, decent malt, and a touch of bitter in the finish. Better than I thought it would be, but not great.

12oz bottle. Clear gold pour with a medium off-white head. Balanced malt and hop aroma that is very dank; missing the crisp factor. The flavor gives some crisp hops and a bit of malt before a bitter finish. Meh.

Aroma is light and hoppy - taste is heavy on green apple, really bright with a crispness and hoppy bite that is very refreshing. Great pairing for Friday night fish fry in WI.

Orange-amber body with a nearly non-existent white head. Light, sweet aroma. I can sense some caramel malt and a little sweet citrus. Rather thin palate, but very smooth. Interesting flavor that is better than the aroma lets on. When I first took a drink I said, "tea." More than anything, it tastes like a glass of sweet tea with a little bit of lemon. There is just a slight bitter finish. Decent beer that lacks depth.
