Snow King Pale Ale is an American/English hybrid inspired by hoppy U.S. pales and uses very classic English hops along with U.S. hops in generous quantity. The new beer is available in limited-edition cans at local liquor stores and will be on tap at Snow King Resort’s new restaurant, Hayden’s Post.

Clear orange pour with a single finger foamy head. Light flowery hop aroma. Pretty muted though, as this can is pretty old. Copper finish with grain mainly dominating the flavor. Light mouth with a bitter finish. Slightly floral, but again, pretty muted. Lace present. Might be better when a little fresher.

12 ounce can. Pours a amber color with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit and wheat. Similar aroma. Has a mostly full body with a fruity finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable.

Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a creamy white head that had good retention and left plenty of lacing around the glass. The aroma is bready, citrusy, oats, and some floral hops. The taste is very hoppy and bitter up front. There is also some citrusy notes in there as well.

12oz can direct from Wyoming. Snow king is a hazy light amber brew with a full head of tan bubbles. Nose is mostly roasted malt with mild hops. First sip is good toasted oats and just a touch of honey. Body is silky. Finishes with just a bit of the good bitters.

Can. The pour is a dark golden color, capped with a finger of creamy off-white head. Thick lacing. Citrus, pine, and caramel in the nose… it’s not overly sweet, some hints of bready malt in there too. Clean taste is lightly citrus, floral, and caramel. Very smooth. Some tasty bitters in the tail. IMO this is a pretty decent offering in the style. I’m not going to go bananas over it or anything, but I’d drink this happily in the ski lodge all day long.

12 oz can given to me by a friend. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a good off-white head with excellent retention. Aroma is very malty, kinda shortbread aroma and some butter. Pretty slick mouthfeel lingers for a while, with more sweet shortbread flavor. Also oxidation is apparent when I breathe out. Drinkable, but I’m unimpressed.

12oz can. Filtered orange-tan body. Frothy, steady white head. Not sure what kind of hybrid this would be..Straightforward APA, maybe leans into the UK yeast a little more than most. Thin, hollow mouthfeel. Not a whole lot going on. A rather boring, bland offering.

It poured a copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was floral hops, grass and fruits. The taste was of oranges with some grapefruit. Thanks Hayduke.
