Appearance: Golden tone, pours with a very thin head that leaves a decent lacing, with lots of bubbling carbonation.
Aroma: Citrus, lemon and a mild hops scent with a slight roastiness.
Taste: Citrus up front that slowly trails into a bitterness but ends back on a citrus note. A hint of floral flavoring.
Mouthfeel: Crisp medium body with a creaminess that lingers. The brew is balanced by its medium carbonation.
I thought November Gale Pale Ale would be much more bitter, but I’m not complaining (as I’m not hophead). This is a refreshing beer that borders between traditional and pale ale. This definitely fits the Keweenaw profile and it’s worth keeping in any good beer fridge.
