Formerly brewed at Clay Pipe Brewing Company
The aroma of the Backfin Pale Ale is of mild autumn fruit surrounded by the pleasant sweetness of the caramel malts that give the beer its richness in color and mouth feel. As you drink the beer, balance of flavor is what is most evident. The malt, the hops, and the yeast each contribute, as you taste the perfect fusion of a complicated blend of carefully chosen ingredients and brewing process expertise. The beer finishes very clean, with a fresh hop spiciness. As with most Clay Pipe products, The Backfin it is not heavy as it goes down. Its fast mellow finish will easily allow room for the consumer to enjoy another one.
