Drifter Pale Ale

Name – Drifter Pale Ale
Country – United States
Type – American Pale Ale

Appearance – Pours a clear amber color with a one finger wide white head.  It leaves a pretty good amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell – Malty with some earthy hop smells in the back ground.

Taste – Nice mixture of caramel like malts and earthy and citrus hops.

I’ve had a couple people tell me before that this is a really solid pale ale.  So going off their recommendations I decided to pick it up.  There are right.  It is a very solid pale ale.  There is nothing crazy or over the top and nothing lacking.  Nice mixture of malts and hops.  Wow this is the third review in a row that I have given the same grade.

Overall Grade – B+

    Good Review.

    This is one of my favorite pale ales! Definitely up there with Dale’s and Sierra Nevada, but above Kona, IMHO. In a world (yes, read it with the announcer’s voice) where PA’s try to be strong and bold, this one shows that it’s not necessary.
