Shoal’s Pale Ale is a “live ale”, which means that it is unfiltered and therefore its appearance is slightly hazy as a result of the sediment of brewer’s yeast that is formed in the bottle. It’s brewed with a combination of Pale, Brewers Crystal 60, Carastan malts along with malted wheat, and is an American interpretation of classic English ale. Shoal’s Pale ale was awarded the silver at the 1998 World Beer Championships. Our panel was quite impressed with this rich copper-colored, unfiltered, medium-bodied ale. Note a complex hop profile comprised of Galena, Cascade, and Chinook hops. Look for a tangy fruitiness at the start, with an assertive hop crispness and a big malty mouth feel brimming throughout. Overall, a very complex, well balanced ale that is bursting with flavor. Its assertive hoppy character will complement rich, full-flavored foods nicely, yet its complex flavors are subtle enough to accompany lighter, more delicately flavored selections. The perfect companion for a summer evening with friends.
