COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They can be seen locked to poles and bike racks around the city. Painted all white, ghost bikes mark the location of a cyclist’s death. Chicago’s roads must be shared - be alert and be considerate. Ghost Bike Pale Ale is a tribute to those lost along the road. Remember them with us.

Pours a orange gold with an off white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is well balanced, hoppy, grapefruit, citrus notes with hops and caramel leading to a bitter, dry finish. Very drinkable, solid pale ale

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours a dark golden orange color with a finger length head that goes away slowly and leaves a ring of lacing. Moderate carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of tangerine, grass, floral, grapefruit, and a sweet and doughy breadiness. Taste starts with some grapefruit and tangerine. Moderate sweetness from the beginning. The middle brings more maltiness. Biscuit and carmel come into play along with more grapefruit, as well as lemon and now more like orange zest rather than tangerine. Taste finishes with a lot of orange zest, grapefruit, some lemon, some pine, sweet carmel, and a biscuitiness. Not too astringent on the finish, as the citrus flavors dominate and last on the palate; however it is pretty dry. Pretty well balanced as well. Medium body with a creamy and sticky mouthfeel. More like an IPA than a pale ale. Not too bad.

jeremyh70 (742) - Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Pours cloudy light orange with good head and lacing. Aroma of orange zest with some grassiness and bready yeast. Taste of grapefruit pith with a smooth bitterness. Hint of sweetness that fades quickly and some grain. Finishes dry with a bit of white pepper. Mouthfeel is soft and medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice and balanced.

kambei70 (619) - - MAY 24, 2013
2013 bomber to a snifter. A cloudy yellow with a bit of an orange tint and a small white head. Smell is strong orange zest with some yeast and a bit of grass. A zesty, peppery hops taste with a little grain. The orange doesn't translate into the taste. Dry taste with a barely detectable sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
