COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogwood Pale Ale is an English-style pale ale, well attenuated with fruity, estery overtones. A blending of three hop varieties in three separate additions provides a clean bitterness. Whole leaf Cascade hops are added directly into the fermentation tank called "dry-hopping" in order to achieve a floral aroma. It is naturally carbonated for a smooth finish.

After I got over the ridiculous amount of foam - a Dogwood trade I guess - this proved to be a sweet tasting pale ale with just enough hoppiness to keep it honest. The appearance is nice and cloudy and no bitter aftertaste. Detect a slight citrus aroma.

Pours a lightly hazy golden with plenty of carbonation and a big puffy white head. Fresh hoppy and fruity aroma. Mildly sweet and hoppy, but nothing spectacular. Dry grainy notes as well. Smooth and drinkable, but dull.

Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Thanks to SpringsLicker for the retired bottle! Poured hazy, deeper peach with a short, but well-retained cap of off-white head.. left some sticky lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up drier toffee and floral sweetness, definitely losing most of its hoppage over the years.. still enjoyable, having aged somewhat like Fuller Vintage Ales (malt-forward). The flavor had sweet, aged caramel and toffee, still with a bit of leafy and pine bitterness.. sweet malty finish. Roughly medium-bodied and a bit tacky at the back-end.. held up decently.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2003 Bottle 2:
Light amber in colour with a thin white head. Very minimal aroma, but hops are detectable in what is noticeable. Medium-bodied; A good hoppy flavour - perfectly balanced with malt. Aftertaste bittered from the hops. Overall, pretty good from the style and better than the IPA in my eyes. I had this beer on draught at Summit's in Sandy Springs (Atlanta), Georgia on 25-September-2003. Rating for this bottle: 4,4,8,3,13.

Bottle 1:
Hazy golden colour with some dark orange highlights. A thick head filled with smaller bubbles and is off-white coloured. Not much too much in the smell, perhaps a bit of english hops, a bit of some sugar and a touch of floral and perfumey aromas. Medium-bodied; Malty flavour with a pretty strong sweetness, just in sugar form (no fruit or burnt sugars), and finally some hops (english). The aftertaste is pretty well balanced between the malt and the hops, but not much other than that is noticed. Not a bad beer at all, but it really didn't strike my fancy. Overall, worth trying if you like English Pales and live in Georgia or Florida! I got this twelve ounce bottle in a beer trade with great guy Matt A. (Mabdoney) from Florida. Thanks again Matt! Rating for this bottle: 6,4,7,2,11
