Review: Smuttynose Shoal's Pale Ale

Smuttynose Shoal's Pale Ale from Smuttynose Brewing Company
Rating: B

Appearance: red-tinted orange, two finger white head which exhibits good retention and leaves sheets of lace. Quite attractive.

Smell: grapefruit, soap, hints of biscuit malt.

Taste: quite a balanced pale ale. Grapefruity, but not as intense as the IPA, but with a somewhat soapy finish.

Mouthfeel: light/medium body, moderately carbonated with fairly fine bubbles.

Drinkability: decent APA, but there are better.
