Tuesday Taste 9/8/09

Labor Day Weekend has come and gone and some of us are feeling a little bit fuzzy from the consumption of fermented beverages. Why not come down for our Tuesday Taste to get you fixed right up? We'll be doing an easy one for you all...three NW Pale Ales: Caldera Pale Ale (ORE), Deschutes Mirror Pond (ORE) and Fish Tale Ales Wild Salmon Organic Pale (WAS). As usual, the Tuesday Taste is from 4:30 to 7:30 and you have to have your ID to taste. No Fee!

Caldera Pale Ale (ORE): A West Coast style pale ale balancing plenty of hops with a malty backbone. Two Row, Light Munich and Crystal malts. All Cascade Hops and an O.G. of 1.050 for an abv of 5.4%.

Deschutes Mirror Pond (ORE): Tawny colored, full bodied Pale Ale. This ale has a distinctive, lingering hop flavor attained by adding copious quantities of Cascade hops throughout the brewing process. Abv is 5.3%.

Fish Tale Wild Salmon Organic Pale (WAS):
Wild Salmon Pale Ale is a light bodied and beautifully balanced Northwest-style pale ale. Its gentle sweetness, drawn from Pale, Carastan, Vienna, Cara-pils, and Honey malts is nicely matched by Chinook hops and late additions of Cascade and Willamette hops. On draught or by the bottle, this treat from Fish Tale Ales is remarkably bright with a brilliant golden color and thick creamy head. Wild Salmon Pale Ale is sparkling and crisp with a fresh hop aroma and refreshing finish. Abv is 5.5%.
