Full Sail Pale Ale

Yet another Full Sail beer before us, and this is their Pale Ale, 5.4% ABV.  Now if I had to describe what a pale ale is in the simplest way, it’s like an IPA but not has strong in hop character. This Full Sail pours a light orange to a light copper color with a nice one and half finger of white vanilla like head. It sticks around for a while and fades into pretty lacing. I found some carbonation streaming to the top, with some light coming though the glass. The aroma on this pale ale is of nice floral hops with a little light citrus note, but nothing as strong as an IPA. Smells somewhat similar to an IPA. The taste of this Pale ale has nice floral hop with a slight bitterness and I did taste a little pale malt there in the middle. I did get a tiny bit of a ripe grapefruit, but it was a faint taste at best. The mouth feel is medium but does somewhat cover your mouth with a nice hop flavor. This does finish nicely and cleans up well on your pallet. The after taste is nice somewhat crisp and refreshing. This is really nice pale ale. This receives a B+. Better than the average pale ale. I would recommend that you pick this up and try this. Come on over to see Mike’s Discount beverage, 4700 Park Rd., Charlotte NC 28209 for this and for your fine wine and beer. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
