Finchs Pale Ale is a refreshing experience from the pop of the top. Its fresh and hoppy taste with just enough supporting malt makes it easy to kick back more than just one. Our late kettle additions of American hop varieties and dry hopping techniques make this beer one of our favorites. The citrus hop character balanced with a malty backbone creates a delicious, accessible pale ale that is sure to satisfy with every sip. Enjoy this pale with just about any pairing of your choice.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bomber. Poured medium orange with a sticky beige head. The aroma picked up orange peel and a touch of spruce over soft pale and bready malts.. not exciting by any means, but clean and fresh. The flavor opened with tangy orange zest and prickly carbonation, with caramel and pale malts following.. peppery notes, orange zest, and a little oxidation on the dry and bitter finish. Light-medium bodied, dry, and bitter as mentioned on the palate.. not a bad feel, but sharp at times.. this would be a decent lawnmower beer.

Session Beer! Slightly hazy with thick white head poured from can. Weedy, floral hops nose with tiny hint of sweet caramel in nose as it warms. Watery mouthfeel with less carbonation than I expected. A bit unbalanced as malts are hard to detect and finishes with dry, grassy, bitter hop finish. Easy drinker, though.

Tmoney99 (14114) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2012
Can. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Cybercat (5485) - Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2012
Comes out of the tap a dark, slightly hazy amber with a fine-bubbled and rather thick pale beige head that leaves very generous lacing. Rich, malty aroma has subtle notes of caramel, cinnamon and fresh-cut wood. Very tempting! Flavor has a malty core and strong notes of apple, fresh wood and horehound. Mouthfeel is fairly fizzy and has good body. Every time I turn around, a new brand of beer is available in the Atlanta area. Let this one fly down your throat.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2012
Nice slightly hazy orange gold hue. Minimal head. Aroma mild hops with very faint citrus. Taste was mild hop with no harshness , dryness or anything negative. Downside was I got ZERO orange peel in this which was a letdown. $3.99 a bomber.

Dogbrick (12501) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 04/05/2012. The beer is a hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Short strings of lace. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of hops, earthy malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

SpringsLicker (3563) - Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2012
Tall boy can. Pours clear gold with a tall white head. Good fresh hop aroma. The flavor has a good hop flavor and bitterness that is supported nicely by a firm malt base. I usually prefer IPAs, but this will suit an IPA lover easily. Not overly bitter but its not weak on the hops in any way.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2012
Clear amber orange color with thin white lacing. There are notes of spice and brown sugar on the nose. Palate differs from the nose in that there is a good deal of astringency and also a good hint of green notes. A somewhat creamy mid-palate but hop notes quickly take over. Overall I feel this is a well made beer.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Tall boy can. Lighter hop aroma with some sweet malts. Given the dry hopping, I would expect a brighter hop nose. Med body, well balanced with citrus bitterness up front followed by some semi sweet caramel malts and light fruit notes with orange peel. Big bitter finish coating the mouth with orange bitterness.
