Snowshoe Thompson Pale Ale is a medium-bodied, copper-colored ale with malty nose and distinct hop finish. Fruity, hoppy, and refreshing. Very balanced and flavorful. Fresh, clean, and tasty.

A decent pale ale. Pours a nice amber color with not much head. Smells a little fruity and hoppy. Taste starts fruity and finishes hoppy. Not bad. Had in the bottle in Murphy's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really nice. Clean earthy aroma and some citrus. Appearance is golden amber with a thin legs and light head. Taste is clean malty cereal, bubbly, light sweet caramel. Palate is barely saturated with hop and grain. Overall easy to drink light to med body smooth light mouthfeel

Medium body, light color. Citric, piney aroma and a surprisingly crisp, bitter flavor. Nearly an IPA. A touch sour at the end, but a nice effort.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2008 I had this in the bottle at Bear Valley, CA (near Arnold).This is a nice, interesting, and slightly different pale ale. It’s amber with a big off-white head that is long-lasting and leaves some nice lace. The aroma is a pleasant, fairly full-bodied blend of grapefruity hops, honey, grain, with a hint of brown bread. The taste is interesting mix of sweet caramelly grain/malt, grapefruity hops, honey, toast with a light bitterness to balance the sweetness. It has pleasant lightness and is vry drinkable yet has good depth and interest, and is different from other pale ales in its unusual piney-fruity quality.

Poured into a pint glass. Color is golden amber. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and resinous hops. Flavor is caramel malt at the start transitioning into hoppy flavors towards the finish. Palate is smooth with light bitterness. Overall a good pale ale.

Poured from 12 oz bottle, picked up at the brewpub. Copper colored with medium off white head. Nose was a little off at first, but as it warmed up it improved. More on the malty side, not a lot of hop characteristics to me. Pleasant taste, smooth and very drinkable. I did open this up with a FW Pale 31 and poured them blind for my mate. She went back and forth for a while, eventually choosing the 31. Overall, it is an interesting PA, completely different then the 31.

Pleasant beer 12oz bottle. More or less a fools you to think it is a hoppy beer but it is rather smooth. Very favorable with hints of citrus. Good balance of hops and seems like a slightly roasted malt. Great summer brew although it is called snowshoe. I would be happy to have this again. Refreshing sums it up.

Bottle. It has a wonderful hop aroma with some nut underneath. Nice looking light brown color. Medium body and long walnut skin finish. Its a little weird that it smells like an IPA and tastes like a brown ale but it’s not off putting. Its actually very enjoyable.

Pours a nice orangish copper with a minimal head. This beer has a nice citrusy hop flavor with a bit of earthyness and a touch of malts, it also has a slight spice to it. Decent beer.
