Geary's Pale Ale
Time to tackle another review. Today I am taking a look at Geary's Pale Ale. Geary's Pale Ale is brewed by D.L. Geary Brewing Company out of Portland, Maine. Geary's offers five beers year round and three seasonal beers. This Pale Ale is hailed as their flagship beer with British influence and even has imported Hampshire yeast, thus the reason it is considered a Brittish Pale Ale.
Geary's Pale Ale is definitely a beautiful copper amber hue. This Pale Ale retains a nice off white creamy head and leaves behind some lacing, very visually pleasing.
Upon the pour I caught the aroma of citrus, floral hops, and a nutty, malty smell. Generally pleasant and nothing to overpowering.
Geary's has high carbonation which makes this pale ale light and crisp. One of the first flavors that I noticed was a nutty, malty flavor, followed up with a distinct hop aftertaste, that seemed to be slightly bitter.
Overall this is a very drinkable beer. I would be able to drink these all night long without looking back. While this a good beer, there is nothing that makes it extra special. It would be a good beer to bring to a BBQ or watch a football game, not an extra special event.
Over all I give Geary's Pale Ale a solid B.
Till next time, enjoy life and good beer!! Prosit!!
