COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a golden colored body with a creamy white head. Its slightly sweet malt flavor makes up the base and offers a supporting role to the refreshing hop profile. Cascade hops provide a floral, citrus and almost fruity character to this well balanced easy drinking ale. Back by popular demand, “Paleooza” is an old favorite and an early original in our portfolio of great beers! 14°

It’s got a but of lager "skunk" to the aroma and that sneaks into the taste a good bit as well (see the likely reason below). Overall, it doesn’t suck, but it’s not exactly good (again, below). I can tell this has some nice hop and malt character and it’s actually well-balanced for what it is. That skunk, thankfully, isn’t highly-prominent, so I can enjoy it at least. This is a beer that I likely wouldn’t try as I’m not the biggest New Holland fan, but Mainstreet Liquors in Countryside, IL had it on sale for $4 for a 4 pack, so I decided "well, it may not be super-fresh, but let’s give it a try anyway for that price!" I picked the one that was furthest from the blazing sun at the front of the store....really great place to put beer, but that’s why it’s on clearance, right? Overall, worth the $1 a bottle experiment.

Great tasting, but lighter pale ale. 4.4% ABV makes for a great session ale on a summer day.
