COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
MIGHTY ARROW Pale Ale provides lots of pleasurable sniffs from Amarillo and Cascade hops with a fetching honey malt base. This is our brewed tribute to Arrow, Kims Aussie/Border Collie mix who ran (literally) New Belgium for 12 years. When she wasnt patrolling the brewery grounds, she was famous for her office visits: She never met a tummy rub she didnt like. Atta girl Arrow.

A very good pale. Has a hint of fruitiness, but not over the top. Close to perfect hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Originally reviewed: 4/11/10. A friend brought this to a cookout last night. Ive wanted to try this one. Poured into a mug. Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head on top. Great retention; left lots of sticky lace. Big sharp resiny pine scent. Sinus-clearingly powerful. Great crisp mouth. Moderate body. Pretty bitter and resiny in flavor as well. A little much for the style. Some sweet candy-like finish. Malt bready balance is lacking. Reminds me of a mild IPA. Not my favorite of the style, but its not bad.

Aroma: A hopped brightness not to be expected from any pale ale /Nice enough to be made into a cologne Appearance: Typical pale ale slightly on the dark side Taste: Wonderful brights of citrus an wheat, akin to a key lime or lemon merange made with beer just a touch of hops Pilate: Typical and moderate in all regards Overall: Bright and wonderful... lets leave it at that

Bottle. Pours a nice clear golden color with a foamy white head. Aromas of fresh herbal hops dominate; but not overly so. Well carbonated but somewhat thin overall. Another pretty easy to drink APA

nice pour from a bottle with aromas of floral hops and sweet malt coming from the glass. a solid hop flavor hits your mouth and is there to stay. slightly sweet malt finish. a good tasting pale ale!

seymour (1929) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Tasted from bottle into nucleated pint glass. Pours a bright amber color with creamy off-white head, little lacing. Strong aromas of bread, aggressive American hops and ale yeast esters. Taste is true-to-style for an American Pale Ale but more malt complexity than typical: Im picking up plain pale, some caramel, maybe some biscuit or aromatic and even a little roasted barley or other unmalted grain. Im not sure what "honey malt" is, but the resulting beer tastes great.

A soils APA. Nicely balanced easy drinking. I am hoping that New Belgium makes this their next canned offering.

A: The beer pours a clear amber color with two fingers of solid off-white head. S: Smells of citrus hops and a bit of stale bread. Plenty of floral hop notes, which are probably the best part of the aroma. A light toast note and just a little bit of bread. Not much else... T: The flavor is a bit grassy with a moderate bitterness. A little bit of citrus peel flavor along with some floral hops. Bready malt with some toast and pale, cracker malts. M: Medium bodied with a moderate to high carbonation. O: Just an okay example of a pale. Dont think I would make this one a repeat beer.
